Stringing information for Head MicroGEL Extreme Pro Racquets: None available

With a new cosmetic and updated grommet system, the HEAD Extreme Pro maintains its spin friendly aspects solid feel. Power is easier to generate, according to HEAD, with the new grommets. The DuPont Teflon Friction Reducing Polymer creates a self-lubricating effect, allowing the strings to slide through the grommets. This means less energy is lost and offers you more power out of the racquet. At close to 12 ounces strung, the MicroGel Extreme Pro offers excellent stability at contact. HEAD claims that its MicroGel material, placed throughout the hoop, reacts at contact and distributes shock around the frame. On court testing has proven the Extreme Pro to be a very comfortable racquet. Our TW playtesters noticed a much softer feel from this racquet than one would expect from its stiffness rating. HEAD have designed the hoop of the Extreme racquets to be wider at the sweetspot, allowing the ball to slide further across the stringbed for improved spin production and racquet stability. Aggressive players will find this racquet perfect for taking large cuts at the ball from all areas of the court. Players will find some useful power from the heft and stiffness of the racquet, yet the level of control remains very high thanks to lots of feel and good ball bite. All in all a very impressive racquet for 4.5+ NTRP level players.

Note: This racquet does not come with a head cover
