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 gradient orange and blue background intermixed with black lines. On top of this is the HEAD logo in white. 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.

Actual grip sizes may vary up to 1/8".

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!
Radical Tour Graphite Paddle Review
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)

HEAD Radical Tour Graphite Paddle August 30, 2019
Reviewer: Bruce Werner from Menan, ID  
I purchased this paddle for it's combination of carbon hitting surface and it's reported ability to spin well, since that is a significant part of my game. I like the feel of the paddle when hitting a ball. It feels solid, but still provides good control. It does have some ability to spin the ball, but not as much as the paddle that I was using before. As a result, it has been taking me some time to decide how much I really liked this paddle. I am getting used to it and it is becoming my primary paddle now, however, I can easily tell that I cannot spin the ball quite as well as with my other paddle. Overall I am pleased with it. The grip is extremely comfortable. The paddle face looks great. I believe that I have better control than I had with my old paddle.

Head Radical Tour Graphite Pickleball Paddle August 15, 2019
Reviewer: David Frank from Madison, WI  
I find this paddle to be very nice overall. Nice level of spin, nice control, nice power, nice soft shots. This paddle has my preferred graphite face and poly core. I use this paddle over my more expensive graphite ad carbon fiber paddles from a couple other companies. My paddle arrived weighing 7.9 ounces.

Radical Tour Graphite Pickleball Paddle May 18, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from East Wenatchee, WA United States  
I bought this to replace a less expensive Head paddle and must say that I'm playing much better with this paddle, not as many unforced errors.  This paddle is supposed to be "softer" which I think suits my playing style better than the old one.
