With the Graphene 360+ Radical S, Head adds another chapter to their lightest and most user-friendly Radical. Boasting a 102sq.in head size, the Radical S is more forgiving and powerful than the Radical MP and Pro, but it still manages to deliver impressive control on full swings. It's also very maneuverable, making it great for the rising intermediate player who wants the benefit of raw speed. The signature technology is Graphene 360+, which combines the stability and easy power of Graphene 360 with SpiralFibers in the lower head to enhance feel. Like the previous generation this stick has a Control Pattern. This feature includes denser main strings in the center for control, along with wider spacing at the margins for a more forgiving feel on off-center impact. From the baseline the Radical S offers a generous sweetspot with a comfortably crisp feel at impact. In addition to its easy acceleration and spin-friendly precision, the Radical S will give you enough power to hit with penetrating depth. At net this stick rewards clean mechanics with effective power and placement. Although not as stable as the Radical Pro or MP, you'll appreciate the speed on reaction volleys. The speed also comes in handy on service returns where the Radical S comes around fast to deliver precise and spin-friendly targeting. Ultimately, this update to the Radical S checks all the right boxes. Intermediate players looking for a speedy and forgiving racquet with controllable power and great feel should add this to their demo list.
