The Head YOUTEK IG Extreme MP is a control oriented racquet, perfect for the big hitting player. This latest version features Innegra Technology which, according to Head, helps reduce vibration and increase stability. Our playtesters found plenty of control with their groundstrokes. With the great access to spin, they were able to take full swings and keep the ball deep in the court. Targeting was on point from all areas of the court. For those who love attacking the net, our testers enjoyed the mobility on their volleys. There was plenty of mass to control and defuse the harder hit passing shots. On serves, our TW team was able to hit a variety of shots. Not only were they able to flatten out the shot, but the 16x19 string pattern really helped in adding plenty of bite to slice and kick serves. From the aggressive baseliner to the serve and volleyer, this racquet has something to offer for every type of player. Recommended for 4.0+ players.

Please note this racquet does not come with a cover.

d30

d3o belongs to the "smart materials" category, which is a futuristic material with abnormal behavior characteristics. More specifically, d3o belongs to a subcategory of "dilatant foams", which dramatically change their behavior under dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the lay-up and positioned in the shaft of the racquet, d3o offers new possibilities for tennis players.

The d3o technology is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes (it's able to adapt to you). On high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slice or drop shots), the d3o molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. What does this mean to a tennis player? Passing shots are even harder and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.

Innegra

Innegra is the world's lightest high performance fiber. Its extreme toughness together with Head's advanced carbon composite technology leads to an ultra tough hybrid composite.

This Head Innegra hybrid-composite structure is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. As a result vibrations are reduced by up to 17% on ball impact for improved control and precision -- protecting the player from the forces of a ball impact. On top of this, Head's new hybrid-composite structure with the ultra tough Innegra fiber considerably extends the performance of a Head racquet. With Innegra, racquets remain in perfect condition without losing any performance properties.
