Head Graphene Touch Radical 170 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 170 Racquet has a substantial 197 gram strung-weight for crushing power on serves and setups, yet an even balance for effortless maneuverability - two aspects that make this model great for players of all skill-levels.
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.
