Description Technical Specs

HEAD Radical Elite Composite Paddle

The Radical Elite Composite Paddle provides solid heft and top-quality control so you can play pickleball at your own pace. With an elongated body and ergonomic grip, this is a versatile piece of gear that gives you the ability to cover large areas of the court, stress free. The design is ideal for control players who want to be able to manage dinks up at the net while still being able to drive balls on the serve.

The Radical Elite Composite Paddle is 16" long with a 5" handle in a medium grip size. The weight ranges from 8.0 - 8.3 oz so you get some extra power in your hits. The design uses an edgy color palette of black/grey paired with neon green. The HEAD logo curves across the top of the paddle while its name and additional accents are placed below. The face is 7-7/8" wide.

The Radical Elite Composite Paddle is a high quality choice for players who want to do it all, from hard slams to technical dinks.

Here's a transcript of the video:
Sarah Ansboury here. Iím your 2016 Womenís Doubles Champion for the US Open as well as Mixed Doubles Champion. So, Iím here to talk to you today about my paddle of choice, HEAD Pickleball. I love the quality of these products. What I have in my hands right now is the HEAD Radical Elite. 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 bit more maneuverability, but it also gives you some nice pop. Now the surface of this paddle is crazy smooth. Itís really, really, soft and itís a fiberglass so with that youíre getting a little extra pop, but a little extra touch. But, my absolute favorite thing about this paddle, like all of the head paddles, this is one single piece. What that means is itís going to be much more stable and secure paddle overall. Demo programs allow you to try paddles to see what you like about them. If you donít like Radial Elite and the fiberglass, then maybe you like the Radical Pro. So go out, see what you think, and come back. Do you want to buy it? Do you want to try another?

PickleballCentral Expert's Corner:
"I recommend the Radical series for newer players since the shape provides more surface area to work with. The Radical Elite, in particular, has a really great price. It uses a standard grip and has less texture on the face, but you still get the same materials and quality of the other paddles." - Sarah Ansboury, Pro Player (5.0)

Got a nice paddle July 13, 2018
Reviewer: Sara Rager from Charleston, SC United States  
I got good help from the people I spoke with and I was happy with my choice. The paddle is a bit longer than usual and makes the serve easier. And I am hitting the ball with more confidence. I was a little concerned the paddle might be too heavy, but so far, no problem. I love the return within 30 days policy.

Switched Product June 9, 2018
Reviewer: Older Novice from Missoula, MT United States  
I ordered the Head Radical Elite paddle. I was sent the Head Xtreme Elite paddle.  I had had difficulty choosing between the two but finally chose the Radical based on head shape.  When I called to check the switch they said they were out of the one I ordered so they sent the other...  without asking me or telling me.
