Racket Review: HEAD Graphene Radical Pro
Originally published on 11/04/14
Whether you’re a counterpuncher, striker or all-court player, if you’re in the market for a new racket we’d recommend taking the Radical out for a play-test.
Originally designed with Andre Agassi in mind, HEAD has gone back to the drawing board with Andy Murray’s signature stick and given a baseline classic some added beef, thanks in no small part to the addition of super-strong Graphene into the construction.
The result is a highly manoeuvrable frame with fantastic feel that is both stable and powerful. It didn’t prove to be as potent as the Prestige but baseliners will enjoy the option to mix up placement and power and keep their opponents guessing.
Verdict: A revolutionary racket.
