Description Technical Specs

HEAD Radical Tour Graphite Paddle

The Radical Tour Graphite Pickleball Paddle is a long, tough paddle that will grant you super speed. Thanks to the carbon/graphite face you'll find out just how quick pickleballs react as you leave opponents in the dust. The 16" paddle face is great for reaching distant pickleballs and covering a broad area of the court. The extra texture on makes it easier to add spin so you get precision placement on every hit.

The Radical Tour Graphite Pickleball Paddle has a 7.8 - 8.2 oz weight and a 5" long handle that allows plenty of room for your hand. The design has a burnt orange background intermixed with stripes of darker red. On top of this is the HEAD logo in black. The grip is a medium size and uses EVA material inside to provide extra cushioning. This provides shock absorption and a better feel.

The Radical Tour Graphite Pickleball Paddle lets you make the most of every opportunity you get to win a point.

Here's a transcript of the video:
Hi everyone, Sarah Ansboury here. I am your 2016 US OPEN Womenís Doubles Champion and Mixed Doubles Champion and Iím here to talk to you about HEAD Pickleball. These paddles are fantastic, so I canít wait for you guys to try them. This is the HEAD Radical Tour. What is so cool about these paddles, you have this dynamic power shape. Thereís a tapered edge, it kind of goes inward a little bit. It gives you a little more maneuverability, but it also gives you some nice pop. The surface that we have is a carbon graphite, so the feel on this is unbelievable. Itís soft and itís powerful. Now with this we have the extreme spin texture on here. I canít believe the grab this texture has. But my absolute favorite thing about this paddle, this is one single piece. What that means is itís going to be a much more stable and secure paddle overall. This is the Radical Tour at 7.9 ounces. What you want to do is try it out. See what you think about that weight. See the feel. Now if you donít like it, well then try something out in the series and youíre going to find something that you like, and PickleballCentral has them all!
PickleballCentral Expert's Corner:
  • "The Radical paddles are thicker than the Xtreme series and provide more power and forgiveness on the ball. Players will feel more ďpopĒ using a Radical while still getting good control. The heavier weight comes from the balance of the paddle. This will appeal to players looking for a power paddle that provides a quick response. This series is also a great choice for players new to pickleball." - Sarah Ansboury, Pro Player (5.0)

Disappointing Paddle October 3, 2017
Reviewer: Terry Owens from Aguanga, CA United States  
I was very excited with the introduction of this paddle and the commentary as to what it could do and achieve for me as a player. I was so disappointment with it. It took way too much force and power in the swing to just return the ball deep into the court and the drop game was almost extinct as to the amount of energy & power it took to dink the ball over the net.  It definitely did not work for me. I am a 4.0-4.5 player. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thanks for the valuable and candid feedback on the new Head Radical Tour pickleball paddle. Is there another paddle you would like to try instead? Given you are looking for a paddle with more power in your drop game and in dinking, I might recommend the Onix Z5 Graphite paddle or The Crush paddle by ProLite. Let me know if there is more I can do to help you select the right paddle.
