I play tennis for the county so I really want a racket I feel comfy with. This racket is superb. If you want a Head racket, go for this. The new Radical is not as good. Although it has the intellifibres in it, there is a fault in the construction just above the handle of the racket and it therefore breaks a lot. The 2001 Radical is far more reliable. The racket gives you a lot of control in your gameplay and it comes with a lovely grip and very useful strings. However, when you do need to replace the strings you should try to get the Head Intellitour strings. These strings enable a player to put an amazing amount of topspin on a ball. Another benefit is that now that the new version of it has come out, the 2001 Radical is only £80 rather than £120/£140. BUY IT
Andre Agassi plays with a Head Ti Radical racquet and he has won all four grand slams. Suggesting that maybe he has a bit of talent but the racquet must be good to. Ti Radical O/S -------------- This racquet is quite powerful but also has a fair bit of control. The head size is 690 sq cm and it weighs in at 295g. This is quite heavy for a tennis racquet and I found it hard to play with. This is because I play with a much lighter racquet and notice the difference. Something that I would say to people that are thinking about buying this racquet is make sure you try it out first. If you play with a heavy racquet already then this racquet would suit you very well, but I wouldn't suggest moving from a lighter racquet to this one. It is made out of Titanium Graphite and costs £139.99 but if you look around you will get a better price. Ti Radical Mid Plus ------------------- This racquet is similar to the one above. It is red and silver and has a head size of 630sq cm. This is around your average head size and has a good mixture of power and control. It weighs 295g, which is the same as the one above, so again I warn you about going from a heavy racquet to this racquet and not going from a lighter racquet. It is made from a mixture of titanium and graphite and would cost you £139.99, but again if you look around a better price will pop up. Radical Junior -------------- This racquet is very similar to the Ti Junior but it is a little bit heavier at 270g. Players younger then 9 would find it hard to play with this racquet, as they might find it a bit to heavy and hard to control the racquet head speed. This racquet costs £49.99 so is a little bit cheaper then the other junior racquet. --------------------------------------------- The above racquets are all excellent. A number of professional players use them, because of the power and control they can get from them. These racq
uets weigh a bit more then your average racquet, which gives them a bit more power. I know people that really love these racquets. They say that they have really livened up their games and have made them into much better players. Most head racquets are well balanced and feel nice. I have to say that I don't like these Radical racquets very much. They don't suit my game. I am sure that when you think that £139.99 is a lot of money to pay for a tennis racquet. Obviously there are much cheaper ones on the market but the quality of them will be a lot less. I think that it is better to spend a lot of money on a tennis racquet and get one that will last you for years then buying a racquet every six months. It is important not to keep on changing the racquet you play with. If you keep on changing say from a light racquet to a heavy racquet, or from a powerful racquet to a racquet based around control this will mess your game up. It will put your timing out and you will find more shots going out the back of the court. The Radical racquets are very funky colours. They have bright red streaks and this is a bonus. Some racquets are very dull and boring but these are very good. After playing with my Ti Fire I would find it very hard to stop playing with that and go straight into playing with a Ti Radical. I have done this once before when I swapped racquets with a mate for a match. It destroyed my game, as there was such a big difference between the two racquets. Also available in the Head Ti Radical range is the racquet bags. They have the same colour scheme and come in three different sizes. You can get a Radical Racket Combi, which holds four-six racquets, Radical Pro, which holds two-three racquets, or the Radical Large Holdall which has a racquet compartment, three outside pockets, shoe compartment and a place for your wet clothes. The Ti Radical is a good racquet but make sure before you buy it that i
t suits your game and that you are going to play well with it.
I bought these racquets- The Ti Radicals, in the thought that they were the latest racquet by head, and had moved Andre Agassi up the rankings dues to the fact that they had titanium in them. Now having spent over £120 on each I find that they only have 2% titanium in them, and the rest is just graphite- I feel a bit miffed, as i am sure you do if you bought them. They do give you a healthy supply of power with reasonable control, and the midsize head is better, and easier to manoeuvre. Since buying it, my tennis has improved a bit, and I feel more confident when I try to put topspin onto the ball. It is also very good for volleying, especially for those who do not have a strong wrist- it does provide some stregth, and my volleying has improved significantly since buying this racquet. My advice to you is that this racquet is actually a very decent bat, but I would suggest that you wait until after Christmas when the price comes down (I will remember that next time) Overall, it is a good racquet but I do not think it is going to get me to Number 1 in the world like Andre Agassi did!!!
The Ti.Radical rackets are produced by head and are used by many of the top tennis pros. A great example is Andre Agassi a couple of years ago Agassi dropped down the rankings and lots of people thought he had left the tour. He then worked hard and got himself back on top at this time the Ti.Radical Was born and he used on the tour. That year he won the Australian and US opens. Once i saw the rackets i knew3 i wanted them a few months after I purchased them and started playing with them. I find the racket powerful but also accurate. It is lightweight and this is a great advantage. It cost £120 and is well worth the money.
