HEAD has responded to player demand with a whole new addition to the Radical line-up. In a departure from the traditional HEAD Radical tight string pattern, the Flexpoint Radical Tour offers an open 16/19 string pattern for easier access to spin and a more lively feel off the stringbed. We noticed plenty of extra kick to topspin serves and groundstrokes with this racquet. The heftier 12 ounce weight and slightly larger headsize (100 sq. in.) compared to the Flexpoint Radical Midplus made for more court penetration and some extra weight of shot from all areas of the court. The stock weight of this racquet also made it more stable during heavy hitting and provided our testers with a solid platform for defensive hitting. The head-light balance retains maneuverability on groundstrokes and volleys. We liked the weight and spin on sliced groundstrokes and approach shots. The extra flex in the head of the racquet offered plenty of feel when finesse was called for and the open string pattern offered a little extra bite to slice droppers. This solid racquet will find plenty of appeal with both baseline and serve and volley players. If you've ever wanted to try a heavier player's racquet, they don't come much better than this. The Flexpoint Radical Tour is a solid choice for aggressive players with sound technique.

FLEXPOINT
Flexpoint racquets feature two precisely-engineered control holes in the racquet's head. This creates a new point of flex, which cups the ball and improves control without losing power. The patented HEAD Flexpoint technology breaks the rules of traditional racquet design by not making racquets stiffer, but by engineering them to flex in a new and revolutionary way.

With a conventional racquet, the ball strikes the racquet at 90 degrees, but due to the racquet flexing it leaves the racquet at a different angle. A Flexpoint racquet is designed to cup the ball by flexing at the Flexpoints. The cupping effect reduces the angle at which the ball leaves the strings and promotes more accurate hitting. Flexpoint technology increases the dwell time and ball pocketing due to its cupping effect which increases feel and provides a larger sweetspot.

Flexpoints are made up of two complimentary features and are located at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the racquet head. Each Flexpoint features an engineered dimple to create flexibility by reducing the beam width by a maximum of 25%. Each Flexpoint also features a hole in the center of the dimple which reduces sectional stiffness by 50%.

LiquidMetal®
Developed by the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), LiquidMetal® alloy provides 29% more power than Titanium. Just as its name implies, LiquidMetal® alloy is different from conventional materials because of its liquid (or "amorphous") atomic structure. This means that LiquidMetal® alloy does not deform on impact, resulting in ultimate energy return.

Head places LiquidMetal® at four strategic areas of the racquet's head, integrated in the main layer of the frame's construction. This allows all of the energy from ball impact to be used for a power return - so what a player puts into his or her swing is exactly what they get out. The result is what Head calls Pure Energy. Perfect Power™

Total Sweetspot Construction
Total Sweetspot Construction increases torsional stability in the racquet head and extends the sweetspot throughout the entire racquet head, resulting in ultimate control.

TWINTUBE Technology

FEATURE:
The inner hard shell of TwinTube technology is made of pure graphite. The outer shell consists of soft, absorbing polyamide.

BENEFIT:
Increased ball acceleration combined with better, overall racquet feel.
