The HEAD Graphene Touch Radical 170 carries forward many of the tremendous technologies from its predecessor with the addition of Kraibon for “touch” meaning better feel and accuracy and PWRail, PowerRail technology that provides added stability and power to the frame. HEAD carried forward the application of Graphene, the world’s strongest and lightest material that makes their racquets 30% stronger allowing for even more extreme distribution of weight.
With HEAD’s adaptive fan pattern (AFP) you get a choice of either the factory string pattern (16×16) or a more open string pattern for less head weight and added bite on the ball.
This is the Graphene Touch Radical 170 gram racquet, the middle weight in the lineup. A smart choice for any player seeking a blend of power and control that works at any swing speed, for any age player.

No delay! And yes, we can nearly always still ship your racquet the same day.
Tips on string selection:
Remember that changing to the more open string pattern (12×16) means less string durability. For this reason, you may want to choose a 16 gauge string with this string pattern for longer string life.
Changing to the 12×16 string pattern requires that we cut out the factory strings and restring the racquet this way using the provided adaptors. You MUST CHOOSE the corresponding string and tension so that we know how to string your racquet. Pricing depends on the string chosen.
Tips on tension selection:
The recommended string tension for this frame varies depending on the string pattern you select: The 16/16 string pattern has a recommended range of 31-37 lbs. (34=Mid), while the 12/16 string pattern has a range of 34-40 lbs. (37=Mid). As always, tighter for more control, looser for more power, or middle for a blend of both.
