Racket Length and Head Size

Both tennis rackets have a standard 27in racket length, however, the Radical Pro has a slightly smaller head size of 98 inches compared to the 100 inches of the Gravity Pro.

Balance

Both the Gravity Pro and the Radical Pro have a racket balance of 6 points Head Light.

Strung Weight and Swing Weight

Both tennis rackets have the exact same strung weight of 332g (11.7oz).

However, the Radical Pro has a slightly lower swing weight at 330g versus the 332g of the Gravity Pro but you won’t feel a huge difference in terms of swing weight.

Stiffness Rating

The Radical Pro is the stiffer of the two rackets with a stiffness rating of 65 versus the stiffness rating of 62 for the Gravity Pro.

Beam Width

The Radical Pro has a slightly thicker beam width (20mm / 21.5mm / 21mm) than the Gravity Pro (20.0 mm) so it will be easier to generate power with the Radical Pro when compared with the Gravity Pro.

Power

If you don’t quite have a full swing yet then you will find the Radical Pro the easier of the two tennis rackets to get power from.

String Pattern

The Head Gravity Pro has an 18×20 string pattern while the Head Radical Pro has a 16×19 string pattern.

Design

For me, the Head Gravity Pro has a much nicer design as it looks great and it has a more modern look to it.

Availability

Both of these rackets are available to buy on online shops such as Amazon, Tennis Warehouse, and Tennis-Point.

Recommendations

If you are a beginner to intermediate tennis player then I wouldn’t recommend either of these tennis rackets as I think they are far too heavy for the vast majority of recreational players.

However, If you are more of an advanced tennis player who has a full swing and has no issues with generating your own power on your shots then my recommendation would be to go for the Gravity Pro as I felt it gave me a little more control and was less stiff than the Radical Pro.
