Comments: A better version of the Pure Drive. More solid, same high power level. You really need to add spin
with the groundstrokes to avoid them from flying long, but when you do, the results are very rewarding. Serves are really
good using the speed the racquet allows to produce with that intermediate weight . The rounder grip is welcomed by those
of us who never could adapt to the typical Head grip shape. More like Babolat or Wilson now, making the transition from
those brands easier. Maneuverable at net, solid (again) volleys . Maybe the best "modern" (tubular) racquet I tried. Highly

Comments: My idea had been to step down a bit from my Wilson 6.1 20x18 which is getting a bit to

powerful 6.1., exactly what I wanted. 12 oz+ sounds a bit clumsy for such a big stick, but it is still fast enough even for
Very happy that I have a racquet that fits my game so well, and I am not aware of many sticks in stock form that would do,
really most of these 100 sqinch and above sticks stress a spinfriendly response.

Comments: I am honored to be the first reviewer. I'm a 4.0 singles player and have used all of the previous
Extremes. The Gel version was closer to this Graphene version than the 2.0 (last year's model). Last year's was a little
harder to wield because of the high swing weight. This is crisper than the gel version, and the handle has been changed.
shape that is, has been changed to the same shape as the Speed line grip. More Wilson-ish if you will than the more
elongated Prestige line. On groundstrokes -- as soon as I hit with this stick it felt like an extension of my arm. Groundies
effortless -- so much effortless power, but with massive spin potential to really add control. The round head shape is
really nice because the string bed feels more consistent throughout. Yes I know that the playtesters said otherwise. Just

for yourself. I usually get my crosses 2 lbs lower than my mains. Serves are not as deadly accurate as if you were using a
stick, but the spin potential and maneuverability make up for that. I just spun everything in, and it proved to be very

is the best Head I have ever picked up. I don't know why this gets a lower rating than an APD? I usually would try the
version just to make sure that I like the MP, but in this case I wont even bother. This is the perfect 11.3 ounce stick. I used
Hawk at 58 lbs. The strings are not that good. They lost snapback at one hour of play. Would not recommend Hawk.
ends up reading this review, just trust me when I tell you to demo this thing. Just try it. You wont be disappointed.
