A classic player’s frame is improved once again in 2018 with the introduction of the HEAD Graphene Touch Prestige MP Tennis Racquet. All of the qualities that have made the Prestige MP a player’s favorite for over 25 years can be expected. This edition boasts a strong 11.3 oz. (320g) unstrung weight, 1.3in head light balance, 98 sqare inch head, 21mm beam width, and control-oriented 18x20 string pattern. Introduced in 2014 on the Speed and Instinct lines, and 2015 on the Extreme and Radical lines, this new frame technology is now incorporated into the Prestige series. HEAD re-engineered the application of the world’s strongest and lightest material to make their Graphene Touch racquets, thus providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power. By using Graphene in the racquet shaft, HEAD has been able to distribute weight 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, while more mass in the handle reduces torque and recoil). Advanced players looking for the ultimate in control and feel need not look further than the Head Graphene Touch Prestige MP. Please note though the head size is listed at 95', it is the same size as the 98' from previous years. Head changed their measuring system.
