HEAD has combined MicroGEL with stiff and strong carbon composite fibers to create a racquet with incredible responsive qualities. On ball impact, HEAD MicroGEL uniformly distributes the impact load around the frame circumference providing a rock solid feel and unique touch that has to be experienced to be believed.

          Comments about HEAD MicroGEL Radical Midplus:

          I accidentally ordered one of these racquets last year, thinking it was the oversize version, not the midsize version. I am a 4.0 to 4.5 club player. I almost sent it back but decided to try it out. It took a couple times, but I play much better with it. The smaller head forces me to hit through the ball better instead of relying on the larger head surface to produce power. I just signed on to order another one and decided to write a review.

            Comments about HEAD MicroGEL Radical Midplus:

            It's a great racquets for intermediate and advanced players. I have been playing tennis for 6-7 years and had the former model of the microgell. This is the updated version and I love it with the smaller 98 inch head with some power and a lot of comfort. And feel when hitting topspin or slice shots. You will love this racquet if you're starting out or a player looking for a lot of feel and comfort to your game.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery packaging was great and it came right on time of the date!

              My two kids have used this racquet for the past 5 years. One of them used it to play 4 years of division I college tennis and the other is using it as a competitive USTA junior ranked regionally in the top 20. I don't have a big budget to spend on racquet replacements for their high usage and this racquet has served the purpose well as shown by their successful results.

                  I love this racquet! Exceptional power and control from the baseline. I would rate it good but not great for serving and average for volleys

                    I have a Head Microgel Monster racquet, and I want to find a replacement. Would this be it?

                      A:

                      It depends partly upon how much your game has changed and what you are looking for from your new racquet. The Radical is a more control-oriented racquet than the Monster and won't provide as much pop. If you feel that you have outgrown the MicroGEL Monster and are looking for a heavier frame that will help you control your power, then the MicroGEL Radical Midplus is an excellent choice. If you are looking for something that is just as close as possible to the MicroGEL Monster, you might want to consider the YouTek IG Instinct S (http://www.holabirdsports.com/tennis/racquets/head-youtek-ig-instinct-s.html) or the YouTek Mojo (http://www.holabirdsports.com/tennis/racquets/head-youtek-mojo.html). Both have pretty similar specs and are definitely worth a try.

                      This racquet was factory prestrung in the middle of the recommended tension range at 57 pounds.
