Intermediate players looking for easy targeting and arm-friendly comfort should like this update to Head's Radical S. This version comes with Graphene Touch, which adds a dampening material called Kraibon to Head's polarized weight system. The overal result is exceptional vibration dampening and easy power. Boasting a 102 square-inch head and a 10.5 ounce static weight, the Radical S is lighter and more forgiving than the Radical MP and Pro. As a result, it is perfect for the developing player who wants user-friendly access to pace and spin. Comfort is impressive thanks in part to this racquet's low 61 flex. Like the previous generation, the Radical S comes with a Dynamic String Pattern which features tighter string spacing in the contact zone for more directional control. From the baseline the Radical S feels comfortable, precise and surprisingly solid for its sub 11 ounce weight. It's also extremely maneuverable, which will give you greater control over the racquet's speed and angle through contact. The upshot is a racquet that gives you more confidence when attacking the ball. At net this stick offers very quick handling, making it great on reaction volleys. The speedy feel is also an asset on service returns where the Radical S comes around fast to deliver easy targeting. As one of the lightest members of the Radical family, the Radical S continues to be a great option for improving players who want a high performance racquet without the burden of weight. The fact that it offers a wonderfully dampened response is a nice bonus.
