HEAD updates its ever popular Radical line with MicroGel technology. The MicroGel material is included in the frame construction and placed all the way around the head of the racquet. HEAD states that when combined with carbon composite fibers in the racquet head, the MicroGel deforms and compresses upon ball impact, uniformly absorbing and distributing the impact load around the entire frame. According to HEAD, MicroGel creates a rock-solid feel and improved comfort while offering extra stability against twisting.
Offering a very comfortable hit, the MicroGel Radical Oversize is Andre Agassi's racquet of choice.. A solid choice for the player seeking control and an arm friendly response this one offers some noticeable flex at impact. While other racquets have faded from this genre, the Radical continues to evolve and impress with each new edition - especially so with this MicroGel version. There's just enough power here to help get attacking shots away, but not so much that a stronger player would need to hold back during aggressive hitting. Spin production comes easily both off the ground and when serving. We enjoyed the comfortable response from all areas of the court and felt comfortable during aggressive play thanks to the predictable response. All in all, an impressive racquet for a variety of player styles at the 4.0+ level.
