Head Graphene Touch Radical 160 Racquet
HEAD's innovation continues with the release of the Graphene Radical Touch Series for the 2018-19 season. New to this series is PWRAIL cross-beam technology which stiffens the racquet's throat for maximum power. The factory string is now 17 gauge - a small, yet significant upgrade in power and playability over 16 gauge which was used in all previous HEAD racquet models. Plus, HEAD's engineers have modified the graphene construction with the addition of Kraibon for extra shock absorption upon impact, improving touch and feel. The HEAD Graphene Touch Radical 160 Racquet performs the best in the hands of intermediate and advanced players who have a medium to fast swing speed.
Other recent HEAD innovations included in this series is their Adaptive Fan Pattern which makes it possible to use the standard 16 main-strings or only 12 for more power, and ComforTech grip technology - a specially formulated polyurethane inlayed into the graphite handle for a softer grip and better playability.
