HEAD has outdone themselves with the new Graphene 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 XT racquets 30%* stronger providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power. By using Graphene XT 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).
The new Graphene XT Extreme MA has a special combination of weight and balance that gives you extra power while still giving you the maneuverability you want. Head has dopped the weight to 10.6 ounces, it is even easier to generate spin and gain that lively feel on contact. Being the mid-weight 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.
Note: Head does not provide a cover with this racquet. Please check out our complete selection of HEAD bags.
