Product Description

The Head Liquidmetal Radical MidPlus offers much of the control of the Liquidmetal Prestige, albeit in a slightly lighter weight frame. Very maneuverable thanks to a nicely weighted head light balance. The Liquidmetal Radical is best suited to an advanced level player with a fast to very fast swing who requires a very concentrated sweetspot. Very dense string pattern further enhances control without sacrificing feel.

Having played for over twenty years I never considered purchasing an advanced racket like the Liquidmetal Radical simply because I don't play very often. However, when I saw the pricedrop on it I just couldn't resist and you shouldn't either. For the first time ever I feel in control on the court. I had a Head racket before (Ti Fire), but I am giving it away because there is just no comparison. Virtually no vibration (when I hit the ball right of course), the shot goes in exactly the direction I want it to go, brilliant. I am very happy with this purchase. Midwest Sports came though very nicely, delivering in no time. An assistant at a local sport store told me this racket is being discontinued, so I bought another one just in case.

I bought 2 of these a month ago looking to explore the direction a different racquet might take my game. currently I hit with the dunlop 2oog XL and love it, but have had some success with head racquets. anyway, the radical mid+ is very light and feels brittle w/out actually being too stiff. it is definitely designed for the modern game's emphasis on racquet head speed, with a light head balance meant for some serious acceleration. off the ground the racquet felt pretty good after I applied some lead tape, and definitely benefits from stringing on the low side of the tension range. higher tensions gave the physical impression of the ball falling off the strings with little penetration. on slices, the radical produced lovely vector-like trajectories that were very satisfying to hit indeed. on serve, the radical provided for much pop, easily rivaling anything I can hit w/the dunlop. the tight string pattern requires more effort to impart serious spin, but serves could be placed accurately. the radical shines in the service dept. but... the real treat was volleying. ye gods this racquet volleys well. crisp, controlled shots I could put anywhere, from the service line up to net, half-volleys, low below-net scoopers, against pace or soft shots. very solid and very maneuverable. the highlight of my month long adventure.
so having said all these nice things about the radical, why did I go back to the 2ooXL? well, as I said before, the radical is about the emphasis on racquet head speed. this concept dominates the game now, as every one tries to emulate roger and rafa et al. which is fine, but that game requires so much effort and a racquet like this requires that game like a german sports sedan requires high test fuel.

This line, next to Babolat Pure Drive Team (Mainly the Plus) and HEAD Prestige (Liquidmetal and Intelligence), is an elite line. Radical has been the most used racquet around here since we've come together as 13-14 year olds. Radical Liquidmetal is an applauded product from Head and we recommend it with great enthousiasm as a racquet for all club (U12/14+ categories) and above players. It works well with all ages.

Size: 4 1/2 Grip Mid Plus Head
I have been playing tennis for 24 years (I'm 38), I play twice a week and I must say this stick isn't for me, you need to create your own power (a lot of it) to use it, it feels stiff, I'm sure it is a great players racquet but it is not for the club player.

I bought the new Head Microgel Extreme 09, this stick is consider a players racquet by Head but it feels much more powerful and soft, of course you don't feel the same control that has the Radical but it is much better for my game.

Conclusion: If you are 21 and you are a serious tennis player (4,5 level or more) go for it, if not try another stick.

Size: 4 3/8 Grip Mid Plus Head Verified Purchase
On my first contact with the raquet, I felt a huge diference on my game. I'm just starting to play tennis, so some movements are quite hard for me to perform. With this raquet, I was able to improve my moves, like my backhand that used to be terrible, and now it's not so much.

It gave me power, but most impressive it gave me precision and constancy.

Totally recommend this purchase.

Size: 4 1/2 Grip Mid Plus Head
Mid-plus size makes this racquet a perfect choice for those who aren't beginners anymore, yet has a long way to be advanced. Not very light but very effecient swings. Easy to control. I first had some hard times with my serves but after some practice this is not an issue. I instantly felt better with my ground strokes. It's worth the price.

This racquet is great. I love its control, weight, and balance. A few days after I recieved it, however, the string broke while I was doing my heat serve, but that is expected considering where i hit it on the racquet.
