The Lite version of the Radical is perfect for beginners and lower ranked players that prioritise manoeuvrability and ease of play.
In 1992, Andre Agassi claimed his first and only Wimbledon title. However, despite this success, Agassi had still yet to find his playing style and struggled with consistency. Since 1989 Agassi had played with Donnay rackets but, seeing his potential, Head signed Agassi to their brand in 1993, which turned out to be a massive coup. After promising to design a racket for their new flagship player, Head launched the Radical series racket, which he continued to use for the rest of his multiple Grand Slam-winning professional career.
Andre Agassi is still synonymous with the Radical brand, although today Andy Murray is the Radical’s most renowned proponent.
Given Agassi’s vibrant and colourful persona, the original design of the Head Radical was, err, radical. Not only did it reflect his image, it also represented trend from the colourful and excessive decade of the eighties. More conservative, toned down versions of the Radical followed but, on its 20th anniversary, Head seem to have gone full circle in fittingly redesigning an illustrious racket with a radical paint job.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
