HEAD Radical Tour EX Raw Carbon Fiber Paddle
By combining a 5.5" long handle, 16.5" by 7.5" elongated shape, and modern "raw" textured carbon fiber hitting surface, the HEAD Radical Tour EX Raw Pickleball Paddle is able to balance power, spin, and control like no HEAD paddle before it. The power in this paddle starts with the leverage provided by the long 5.5" handle that adds swing speed to drives and overheads. This power is enhanced by the high sweet spot, pushed northward and away from your hand, which adds whip and topspin to well-struck passing shots. This sweet spot is created and expanded by the 15mm (0.59") polypropylene honeycomb core that also works to limit vibrations, dampens the noise made upon contact, and mitigates the frustration of off-center strikes.
While the "EX" in the HEAD Radical Tour EX Raw paddle signals the extended handle and elongated shape (appreciated by those with a tennis background), the "Raw" is referring to HEAD's first unadulterated carbon fiber hitting surface. The individual fibers create a gritty texture to help you impart fantastic side spin on your cuts and slices, or heavy top spin on your serves and drives. This surface-and-core combination also serves to create a controllable feel that allows you to place drops and dinks with impressive accuracy.
The Radical Tour EX Raw paddle from HEAD Pickleball balances multiple control elements with a powerful elongated shape and HEAD's legendary build quality to help you expose your opponent's weaknesses and dominate the court.
