Head MicroGel Radical Tennis Racket
The Radical family of rackets is a very popular one from Head. This family is updated with the new MicroGel technology. But what is MicroGel technology?
According to Head, MicroGel is a new compound that is mixed with Carbon fiber to make the structure of these rackets. What is the advantage of adding MicroGel to the structure? While hitting the ball, this new material adds an extra degree of deformation to the racket that helps the racket to get compressed and let it put an additional impact on the ball. Also, this material absorbs any impact load and uniformly distributes that load throughout the whole structure.
You are getting excellent comfort while playing with this racket. Also, you have the option to choose the head size according to your playing style. There are two versions of this racket available in the market. One is the Head MicroGel Radical Midplus and the other is the Head MicroGel Radical Oversize. The first one has a head size of 98 square inches and the latter one has a head size of 107 square inches.
The frame weight is 312 grams. It is a little heavier than the previous ones we have discussed. The total length is 27 inches and the string pattern is 18 mains, 20 crosses. The usual rackets have a string pattern of 16/19. So you are getting a difference here.
There are several grip sizes available and you can choose among them with ease. The racket is not very costly as well. You have to spend less than a hundred dollars just like the Head Ti S6.

The head size is standard, 98 square inches. This racket comes with different grip sizes so that you do not have to worry about handling the racket.
