The HEAD Graphene XT Radical MP (98) Tennis Racquets were first introduced in 2016. HEAD constructed the MP with graphite and Graphene XT technology. The latter removes weight away from the shaft and toward the grip and the top of the racquet. The result is more ball speed at impact and more stability due to the increase in swing weight. The Radical MP has a robust 98 square inch head, and a dynamic 16×19 string pattern. With an unstrung weight of 10.4 ounces, the MP packs a strong punch and is easy to swing. The GrapheneXT Radical MP comes pre-strung with Synthetic Gut 16G at 57 pounds. Players can expect a bit more power from the Radical MP than the popular XT Speed models.

- Graphene XT: Graphene XT is the next generation of Graphene. This evolution of the original Graphene utilizes bigger platelets which allow for better bonding. The result is a racquet that is 20% lighter and 30% stronger, thus allowing for an even more optimal distribution of weight to the poles. Ultimately, by creating a racquet that accelerates more easily, and by putting more mass at the tip, closer to where modern ball strikers make contact, this technology gives the player easier access to power!
**Note, this racquet ships pre strung from the manufacturer @ mid tension!
