HEAD has outdone themselves with the new Graphene Touch Extreme MP! This racquet is an expert blend of maneuverability and stability. HEAD re-engineered the application of the world’s strongest and lightest material to make their Graphene Touch racquets 30%* stronger providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power. By using Graphene Touch in the racquet shaft, HEAD has been able to move weight from the shaft to the tip and handle, increasing power and stability without changing overall racquet mass (more weight in the head provides greater plow through from the baseline, and more mass in the handle reduces torque and recoil). Graphene Touch also softens the feel of the Extreme, making it more arm friendly, and solid feeling at contact
The new Graphene Touch Extreme MP has a special combination of weight and balance that gives you extra power while still giving you the maneuverability you want. Head has dropped the weight to 10.6 ounces, it is even easier to generate spin and gain that lively feel on contact. Being the heavier racquet in the Extreme line, the MP is a great all-around frame with a solid feel and enough mass to maintain control on a variety of shots. With its 100 square inch head size and 16x19 string pattern, this racquet is great for intermediate players who are looking for something to provide a bit more power. Fans of last year's iteration will like the addition of 360 degree grommets, giving this racquet a slightly more open string pattern.
