HEAD opens up the Prestige line to more players with the lighter-weight Graphene XT Prestige S. 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 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). Lowering the frame weight by 1/3 oz. from the Prestige Pro results in a maneuverable 11.3 oz. strung weight. The Graphene XT Prestige S is easier to swing for juniors and slower-swinging adults looking for improved feel and control. Keeping the balance head light and the string pattern open allows for more racquet speed, power and spin potential. A 22mm beam adds power and stability.
