Innegra™: Innegra™ is the world's lightest high performance fiber in the industry today. HEAD's advanced carbon composite technology combined with Innegra™ forms an extremely tough fiber. The new high composite structure is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. Vibration at ball impact is reduced by up to 17% for unmatched control and precision and is easier on your arm. HEAD's new hybrid-composite structure considerably extends the performance of your HEAD racquet at the highest level, giving you consistent performance over the entire life of your frame.

YouTek™: YouTek™ combines superior technologies to perfectly match your individual needs. Whether your game is aggressive and adventurous or consistent and smooth, YouTek™ enhances your performance and brings out the best in you.

d3o™: The frame-inlay d3o™ is a smart material. The specially designed molecules in d3o™ react on different impacts within nano seconds. They stay soft during slow hits and lock together on hard strokes. With this behavior, d3o™ is able to sense the needs of your play and adapts to you. It provides maximum power as well as softer touch for a better feel.

      Comments about HEAD YouTek IG Radical S:

      I have gotten back into playing tennis quite a bit, and plan on playing in a competition next summer. I had another beginner type racquet I was using, but needed a better racquet with a smaller grip.

      I researched a lot of the Head racquets, and I felt this one would be good for me based on the description as well as other reviews.

      The racquet is very light, and although the string area is slightly smaller then my previous racquet, still seems to have a very good sweet spot.

      The racquet immediately felt good the first time I used it, and I am getting much better with putting spin on my shots. I really like Head racquets, and this one definitely suits my needs. I would say my skill level is at an upper beginner to lower end intermediate player (3.0-4.0).

          Comments about HEAD YouTek IG Radical S:

          i really wanted a babolat because that's the cool racket that all the young kids were hitting with.
          I tested 3 babolat and this head. I really wanted to like the babolat, but the head just felt so much better.
          not so much that it gave more power, but that it felt better when i hit it.
          and i seemed to mis-hit it less too.
          i ended up buying two of them.
          =)
          hola bird is the best.

            Solid feeling, maneuverable. Easy racquet speed produces great spin. Strung with Sonic Pro 17 at mid range.
