New for 2020 - 2021, Head's Popular Tour Series now comes with a choice of a Graphite (GR paddles) or Composite (CO paddles) hitting surfaces. The Graphite version weighs in at 7.9 ounces while the Composite version is 8.1 ounces. It is generally said that a heavier paddle with a composite face is better for power (Force = Mass * acceleration) and that, for control, a lighter paddle with a graphite surface is ideal.
The Radical Tour GR is made for the powerful player who needs stability as well. In addition to its graphite hitting surface, it features the new Control Stabilizer Technology (CST) for added stability during powerful rallies. HEAD's Graphite Hitting Surface (GHS) combines a crisp feel and more control for added touch, while the Comfort Grip System ensures a tremendous feel and enhanced vibration dampening.
