Comments: If you have some strength in your arm go ahead and (excessively) weight the hoop down more. I
added three layers of hoop tape (about 20 inches each) to the top of the hoop and use a full bed of 15g strung at mid
fifties of a textured syn gut to put more weight at the far end of the 9.8 ounce racquet (a simulated heavy racquet. Doing
this will still give a quick swing on defense and speedy, spinny depth when on offense. Otherwise bigger hitters will knock
the racquet around on strokes and serve. One-handed backhand slices are dream-like after this mod and you can still
create good angles on the forehand on low shots -- it still flicks easy to the sides of the court. Waist to chest high topspin
responses are easy to counter back with hacks and less shank-able depth when hoop weighted. The graphene on this
light racquet is surprisingly easy on the arm. very comfy. If you swing slow already the hoop wight is benefical in stock
form. This is a really fun and effective racquet if you go for a more head heavy feel.

Comments: I've tried the Pro, the MP and the Rev, and the Rev takes the cake for me among the Graphenes.
It's the most comfortable of the bunch, and the head heavy balance makes it more solid-feeling than the MP, while staying
very maneuverable. If you play 4.5 and above, you get plenty of room for adding weight (I've added about 25g of silicone in
the handle, but also liked it in stock form). Truly a good racquet.

Comments: Surprised not to see more reviews for this racquet. It has worked well for me (I'm 56 years old and
competitive club player) as a replacement for a heavily leaded Dunlop 300. Went full circle with strings (Head RIP Control,
Edge) and in the end, the recommended Sonic Pro black gives me the best balance of control, touch and power. I can
playing characteristics in the reviews below, and this frame/string combination has been mercifully easy on the arm. It did
while playing to get used to it (there was temptation to hit too flat). Stick with it if, like me, you are looking for a lighter pro-
frame that rewards good technique and an all-court game.

Comments: Picked one of these up a month ago, strung it with Head Hawk Control strings at 57 lbs. Very
impressed with the frame, but the strings not so much. My next move will be to switch to Forten Aramid Gear at 52-53 lbs.
Control is the strong point of this frame (which is impressive in a HH package), so I feel like I can take the tension down
bit. Not only is it easy to use in stock configuration, HEAD racquets have an easily removable cap in the butt guard --
which I have
taken advantage of to add lead weight for some experimentation. I've gone as high as 25 grams in the butt, and brought
racket to almost 8 pts HL, then dialed it back down to 25g, then to 10g. The more I play, the more I want to just use it
let that heavy head do the talking for me. Certainly takes some getting used to, but if you swing heavy already, this
gives some baseline power. Many years ago, I played with a Wilson Hammer 5.2 (8pts HH), and I bought this because I
had lost my old racquet. I found my Hammer, and spent some time switching back and forth until I've decided that the
better in every aspect.

Comments: After upgrading from a Head LM8, this racquet has been impressive. It took some practice time to
used to the HH balance, but has a solid feel to the frame, so I can handle my opponent's pace. Also, I can swing as hard
as I can
still get a lot of control; hitting the sweet spot is a reward in itself -- I don't feel a thing, just hear the sound of a perfect ball
off the strings. Good, easy depth, but at net might be a little too strong though. I have it strung with Volkl Power Fiber II at
and have had no issues with the strings, I think it's perfect. Overall, I'm very confident playing with this racquet.

Comments: With it's odd combination of light weight, yet a heavier swingweight than the other 2 models, I
frame has scared off a lot of potential buyers. I watched a ITF pro practice partner just take apart a guy, a good guy, in an
event. After, I spoke to him about the frame, and he said "way more power and much cleaner feel than my Graphene Speed
which was my thoughts, exactly. Pushed out wide, you can just snap this frame for some incredible saves, yet the pace is
the swingweight, although it does feel faster than 330, that SW does hit a big ball. And it serves with more power than it's
brothers, too. I'd like to pick one up.
