Head Graphene 360 Radical Pro
Don’t let the word “Pro” scare you away from trying this racquet! You can see all the specs below but this 98 square inch head and thin beam (20/23/21) add up to a definitive “players” racquet just slightly heavier than the MP but having the same swing weight.
The Graphene material has been re-arranged a little and is now “360” as oppossed to “Touch”. It seems the word “touch” diminished the famous feed-back of the racquet…so goodbye!
Like the “MP” the “Pro” has a slightly more “round” grip shape on a pallet that accepts the Head Sensor, as do all the recent Head racquets.

So what is the difference b/t the “Touch” and “360” ? Is it wording or did the racquet significantly change?
Kristina, thank you for the message!
According to Head the Graphene 360 is located in slightly different positions than the “Touch” series. I believe racquet companies are retracting some of the “muting” materials and returning to the “feel” that made the racquets popular.
So, in my opinion, and some observations, there is no significant change.
