HEAD’s Radical Turns 25 Years Old: Limited Editions Galore…and SuperFab

HEAD’s Radical Turns 25 Years Old: Limited Editions Galore…and SuperFab

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.

HEAD Revamps Speed Series with Graphene 360

HEAD Revamps Speed Series with Graphene 360

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.
