Description of the Racquet

Head's Graphene Radical 160, 170, 180 series was the most successful Head launch since the original Liquid Metal’s 12 years ago and the new XT Radical series will be no different as these play incredible. Once again Head has the 160, 170, and 180 gram weights available. The 160 gram weight is designed for the player with the fast swing speed or the younger player and the 170 and 180 are for the slightly older player or a player that could use some extra weight to help get the racquet around. What else is new in the XT's? The technologies are explained below:

Comfort Tech Grip Technology:

  • Specially formulated PU material has been inlayed into the graphite handle
  • Creates a softer grip and dampens vibration for more comfort and playability

Adaptive Fan Pattern (AFP):

AFP technology allows you to customize your string pattern to maximize your particular game style. With Head’s new bumper system technology you are able to choose between 16/16 (traditional & factory strung) or 12/16 (modified fan pattern) each time you string.

  • 16/16 Traditional String Pattern – Designed for players with faster swing speeds that need maximum power while increasing precision and string durability
  • 12/16 Modified String Pattern – Designed for players with all swing speeds looking to maximize power. This modified fan pattern keeps the center ten mains the same as the 16/16 pattern but eliminates four of the outer main strings. This maintains the dense pattern in the sweet spot area while still lowering swing weight and increasing string deflection delivering incredible power and soft feel on every shot.

Please note... If you choose the 12/16 option and don't select a string upgrade ($22-$25) you will get the factory 16/16 option.

If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.

These are available in the smaller 3 5/8 and the larger 3 7/8 grip sizes.

RacquetWorld's General Notes

I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, for the added traction to prevent slippage.  The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.

The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.  It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and it’s a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.

If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.

A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet. 

Racquet Covers - Choose one for $10 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)

A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-10 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.
