Head updates the iconic Prestige Midplus with Graphene, one of the world's strongest and lightest materials. By applying this substance to the racquet's midsection, Head is able to strategically shift weight to more functional areas at the poles (handle & tip). The result is a crisper, more modern feeling racquet, one that moves through the strike zone with impressive speed. While the overall feel has changed, this update retains the dense 18x20 string pattern along with the unmistakable control it delivers. From the baseline the majority of our TW playtesters found the Graphene Prestige Midplus to feel solid, precise and stable. And thanks to how fast this one handles, there's definitely some serious spin to be had by aggressive topspin players. At net the feel is crisp, with a very discernible blend of accuracy and stability on balls cleanly struck. The accuracy continues on serves where this one should definitely up your percentages, if not your power. Ultimately, while this update may not please every Prestige traditionalist, it should definitely earn a following with players who want a speedy control racquet with impressive precision and above average spin potential for the breed.

Graphene is an ultra-light and ultra-strong substance which is 200 times stronger than steel. Head places Graphene in the shaft so that weight can be redistributed to more functionally relevant areas of the handle and tip. This unique construction provides players with increased swingweight for more power with less effort.
