HEAD updates its ever popular Radical line with MicroGel technology. The MicroGel material is included inthe 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.
The MicroGel Radical brings an excellent level of comfort to every shot. There's some noticeable flex from the hoop of the racquet, resulting in a comfortable and plush feel as well as a sense of increased dwell time. Our TW playtesters found lots of control from all areas of the court. With the ball embedding well into the stringbed, spin production comes easily as does judging the depth and direction of shots. At net the racquet offers a very mobile feel for a player's racquet. The level of control and feel continues to impress at net and players who like to push forward will find lots of performance here. Players with developed strokes will find moderate power, but with a heavy emphasis on control and feel. A solid choice for 4.5+ level players looking for a plush feeling racquet offering solid all court performance.
