In this article, I will look at the specs of these rackets to see how they compare to each other.
Head Extreme Tour vs Radical MP – Specs Comparison
In the comparison below I have used the 2023 version of the Radical MP and the 2022 version of the Extreme Tour.
Main Differences: The Radical MP has a slightly lower swing weight (321 vs 322), a lower frame stiffness rating (65 vs 66), and a thinner beam width (20mm / 23mm / 21mm vs 23mm / 26mm / 21mm).
Similarities: Both rackets have the same head size (100in), racket length (27in), balance (4pts HL), string pattern (16 x 19), strung weight (318g), and unstrung weight (300g).

Comparison of Arm Friendliness, Spin, Control, and Power
The Extreme Tour is the better option in terms of power and spin but the Radical MP is the better option in terms of control and arm friendliness.
Both of these rackets are best used by intermediate to advanced tennis players as they are too heavy for most beginners to play with.
