Head updates the heaviest member of the Extreme clan with Graphene, a substance used in the shaft so that weight can be strategically redeployed to the handle and tip. The result is a racquet that accelerates very smoothly through contact, an impressive fact considering its near 12 ounce weight. Like the best modern player's racquet, the Graphene Extreme Pro feels lively, precise and very spin friendly. It's also quite comfortable thanks in part to its S-Tech grommets which help the string bed soak up more impact shock. From the baseline our TW playtesters reported good control, but the standout features were power and spin. At net this racquet's speed and pop make it dangerous in the hands of an aggressive volleyer. There's also plenty of pop to be had on serves. All in all, the Graphene Extreme Pro looks like a very promising option for any player looking for a player's racquet that doesn't skimp on power or spin.

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.
