To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the HEAD Radical tennis racquet, HEAD has a few releases for the die hard tennis fan and collectors. Andre Agassi carried the banner for the Radical series from 1993 to his retirement in 2006, and no iteration of the racquet is more iconic than the “Bumble Bee” from 1993. Don’t forget about the Sprint SF!!!!!!
The HEAD Radical OS LTD has simplistic yellow and black color scheme that is tame by today’s standards. The frame’s oversize 107 head is also a call back to an era when manufacturers made heavy players racquets in the OS category. You still see oversize racquets today, but mostly of the ultra light and powerful variety for players with more compact swings. At around 12 ounces strung, I dare say the Radical OS LTD is on the short list of the most stable frames ever made. The 18×19 string pattern plays pretty open on the oversize head, so spin is fairly easy to generate.
Oversize racquets can get lost in the tennis industry today. Although manufacturers produce many different types of oversize racquets, most players don’t know which one to choose. This blog is here to help you find that perfect oversize racquet!
With new Graphene 360 Technology, the next generation of the Head Speed Pro is sure to be a stunner. Players will get greater stability and power even with a dense 18×20 string pattern. Check out what our playtesters thought of this new racquet endorsed by the great champion Novak Djokovic.
HEAD’s new Speed Line includes the Pro, MP, MP Lite, S, and Lite models. They have updated their Graphene Touch technology from the previous generation and created all new molds featuring Graphene 360. Instead of the focus on a polarized weight distribution (weight in the grip and tip), Graphene 360 is located in the shaft and throughout the hoop to improve stability and increase energy return. HEAD made an effort to make the popular Speed Series more comfortable and solid at contact.
Head adds the MxG 1 and the MxG 7 to their MxG series of racquets. The 1 is the most control oriented MxG racquet to date and features a mid-plus head size with a flat beam design. The 7 is the most powerful frame in the MxG catalog and has an expansive super-oversize head, and an extra-long 27.6 inch length.
