Head makes big changes to the Extreme MP but keeps the phenomenal blend of power, precision and spin of past generations. Made for aggressive players who like to attack the ball, this modern player’s racket is updated with Graphene Touch, the most comfortable and dampened version of Head’s polarised weight system. It also has wider string spacing than the previous generation, making it decidedly more spin friendly. At 11.2 strung, this stick boasts raw speed, but it also packs a big enough swingweight to get the ball moving through the court. This model is built with Head’s new 360 Grommet system, which utilises larger, funnel shaped grommets to promote greater string movement. The result, according to Head, is a stringbed that not only absorbs more shock but also delivers greater dwell time, snapback and power. Head also improves the feel with a thinner 21mm throat section, giving this racket better touch on droppers and shorter strokes. From the baseline, the Graphene Touch Extreme MP will help you dictate action with pace and spin. It is particularly well-suited to those who like hitting heavy, spin loaded balls that drop hard and explode off the court. At net this stick feels fast and solid. Block volleys penetrate backcourt, and there’s more than enough pop for finishing points with authority. Aggressive servers who can get this racket moving fast will find the needed spin and power to force some very weak replies. On service returns the Extreme MP not only has enough mass for counter-punching big first serves, but it should also give you the tools to punish anything in your wheelhouse. With some impressive tweaks to the feel and power, this version of the Extreme is ideal for any player who wants a fast and stable racket that crushes the ball.
