Head YouTek Radical Pro
Released September, 2009
The Pros:Very high swing weight for this class and price range. High degree of topspin on serves. Better than average serve power for this price.
The Cons:Less maneuverable than many others in this weight class. Some will find serves to lack adequate pop.
The Head YouTek Radical Pro is a premier tennis racquet recommended for professional players at the 4.5+ level. It is a slight heavier and more power-focused version of the Radical MP. And it features an open-string pattern that delivers an ‘extra pop and spin’—allowing for more pace compared to the tighter pattern used on most Head Radicals.

Like its predecessor, it is engineered with Head’s new YouTek technology, which includes d3o adaptive materials that change behavior under dynamic loading or impact; Teflon for less friction and greater power; and Aramid bumpers. The d30 materials — dubbed ‘smart materials’ — host meta-morphing molecules that remain soft during slow hits, but lock up tight on harder, more powerful strokes. It essentially ‘senses your needs’ and then adapts accordingly. A notable professional who uses the YouTek Radical Pro is Andy Murray.
