HEAD Radical XL Graphite Paddle

The Radical XL Graphite Paddle has a long face which translates into a large sweet spot with added versatility. The reach you get on this paddle is perfect for low balls, slices, serving and everything between. The polymer core minimizes vibration so that you can maintain your form even during heated exchanges, while the graphite face adds reactivity and speed to every hit.

The Radical XL Graphite Paddle comes in two weight options. The blue paddle weighs 7.6 oz so that players can respond quickly to changing circumstances. The red paddle has a heftier weight of 8.3 ounces. Its handle length is 4-2/3" long and has a medium circumference. The Radical XL has a gray background with black, stone-like outlines patterned on top of it. The HEAD logo is placed in the upper half of the design.

The Radical XL Graphite Paddle will let you stretch to return pickleballs while facing any challenge.

Red Radical XL Graphite December 30, 2018
Reviewer: Joe Filosa from N/A  
I just received a replacement paddle for the Red Radical XL Graphite I had ordered.
The original felt a little light. Pickleball central offered an exchange without my having to ask.
They send a replacement within 3 days. The new paddle feels great and I want to thank pickleball central for there response.

Easy to adjust to December 13, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from HI United States  
I've played approx 15 games and have done 5 hrs of drills with this paddle since having it for 2 weeks, and have not experienced a drop off in play, or noticeable improvement, so I guess it truly is the player, not the paddle! But its length has given me much more confidence going for shots over my head. It's well-balanced, and the sweet spot location and narrower width has not caused any problems.

Great Paddle December 13, 2018
Reviewer: Cheryl McCloskey from Prescott, AZ United States  
This paddle works well for me.  I like the elongated shape.  I can get to shots I missed before and the extra length gives me leverage.  I can return the ball with greater speed.  The surface makes it easier to spin the ball and I now have finer control for dinking.  Much easier to dink with this paddle than with my old one.  The narrower width does take some getting used to, have to hit the ball more precisely.

Radical XL Graphite Paddle December 7, 2018
Reviewer: BILLN from ANAHEIM, CA United States  
When I purchased this paddle I had high hopes for it.
It being heavier that the Blue model which I knew would be too light for me. I was hoping with the heavier weight this paddle would have the "POP" that I enjoy having in my paddles. I was disappointed in this paddle and the way it played. It still played like a light weight paddle in my hand.I even added more weight to the head of the paddle hoping the "POP" would finally be there. Unfortunately, it didn't make that much difference. I hope Head makes a model using a composite paddle face and is able to keep it in the 8.0 to 8.3 oz. range. I believe that will be the best paddle. I truly like the feel of this paddle. The handle is very comfortable and is easy to move about while transforming from volleys to ground strokes and dinking. It just needs a composite paddle face. If you like having "POP" in your hits wait for a composite version. I hope Head is reading this review. If you make it (Head) we will buy it.
