Technologies

Youtek: Combines superior technologies to perfectly match your individual needs. Whether your game is aggressive and adventurous, or consistent and smooth, YouTek enhances your performance and brings out the best in you.

Graphene: This technology is integrated into the racquet shaft, making it more stable and allowing the optimized redistribution of weight. Weight is thus shifted to the tip and grip, providing better maneuverability and increased swingweight. Thanks to its revolutionary construction with the world's strongest and lightest material, graphene, this racquet provides the optimal redistribution of weight, giving you more power with even less effort.

This has been one of my favorite racquets of late, and I could easily switch to this without much of an adjustment. I have not hit the previous versions a whole lot, so I'm going to leave the comparison to the YOUTEK IG version to the guys that have hit those a little more. To me, it feels a lot like the new Wilson Blade 98 18x20, with a similar feel but with a little more forgiveness and maneuverability

The new Graphene Speed Pro is not too far off of the original YOUTEK Speed 18x20, IG YOUTEK Speed 18x20, the Prince Exo3 Tour 100 18x20 (with string hole inserts), the Donnay Pro One 97 (18x20) and Dunlop Biomimetic F3.0 Tour, which are all physically comparable to each other

I felt like this racquet played just as good as my current racquet of choice (customized Microgel Radical MP). It has more power but is not as comfortable on the arm. It's a much better racquet for me compared to the previous version, possessing more power, stability, and feel. I found a blend of power and control that some of the older Head Instinct's possessed, such as the Liquidmetal.

Best racquet ever made, special thanks to the Head team. No wonder Djokovic is so good! Perfect specs. Perfect colors. Only thing missing is a case. Don't get fooled by the "G" of graphene, as it could also stand for gem!

I have loved this bad boy from the moment I laid my eyes on them. After playing with the Head MG Radical (tweaked with lead tape) for 2 years, I decided to upgrade to this one. And boy, I am not disappointed! Power, spin, precision and feel! Only thing I miss from the Radical is the plow-through and it being less stiff.

I play with the previous version of this racquet, the IG Speed 315, upped it to 355g with lead in the hoop to keep the balance. I tried the Speed Pro without increased weight, and it felt very flimsy, so I matched the weight to 355g. Even played with the same string, M2 Plus at 52lbs. After trying both in the same sessions, I believe we are not talking about a racquet upgrade, but a completely different stick altogether. The Speed Pro is stiffer and faster through the air. There is less plow-through than the IG Speed, but is definitely more powerful. You feel the stiffness reverberate through your arm. They are altogether very different racquets. I will keep testing because I haven't made up my mind yet on which stick to go with. Best regards.

It was a close call between the new Wilson Blade 98

It was a close call between the new Wilson Blade 98 and this. I love how this new Speed Pro feels especially at the baseline. It gives so much stability and precision on each shot and slicing with it is just amazing. The racquet also gives more punch at the net on overheads and serving with it was solid too. This is indeed an all rounded racquet and I'm really impressed with the stability of it. I was a huge Wilson Blade fan but there is no doubt that this Speed Pro will be my new weapon of choice.Good job Head.

I am a teaching pro and work with lots of top ranked juniors in SoCal, I have tried this racquet now for a month and it is great! If you know how to hit correctly this frame can do everything you want. It's a new generation of frames that has the perfect blend of everything - you can't go wrong here.

This racquet is one of the best on the market for the all-around player. Great from the baseline, with great access to spin and tons of forgiveness. It's great at the net due to the great feel and maneuverability of the racquet. Serves are great because it has enough weight for flat serves but enough maneuverability for adding spin as well. Excellent for return of serve. I highly recommend it!

This may well be the best balanced racquet I have ever

This may well be the best balanced racquet I have ever played with. By balanced I mean over all performance balance, it has enough weight in the head for good plow through on ground strokes but is balanced enough head light to still be quick at net. It is stiff enough to give good power on well struck shots but has enough flex to allow for great touch and feel. This really is a players racquet, if you have the skill this racquet will let you do whatever you want with the ball, but you need to have the strokes. Unlike some I did not find the racquet lacking in spin potential you just need the racquet head speed to generate it.
