The Head YouTek Speed MP offers a nice blend of control and power. A generous sweetspot adds forgiveness for those slightly off-center hits. With the open 16/19 string pattern, spin is easily attained with a healthy swing speed, helping to keep the ball inside the baseline. Our team found this stick to be versatile from the baseline. Whether going for touch and placement or flattening one out for a winner, this racquet responds to both. Although slightly longer than standard length, the added length of this stick is barely noticeable. At net, the YouTek Speed MP offers enough heft to handle well paced shots, while being mobile enough to get the stringbed on the ball. On serve there was plenty of power to be had when needed, though having a nice amount of control for mixing it up with spin and placement. The YouTek Speed MP is a great option for all court players as it offers assets from all areas of the court. A very versatile racquet and a must demo for intermediate to advanced level players.

Note: This racquet does not come with a head 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.
