Very maneuverable and spin friendly, the Extreme from HEAD brings lots of performance to a variety of player styles and levels. Stronger players will love the spin and power offered from all areas of the court, while improving players will enjoy the maneuverable feel and comfortable response from all areas of the stringbed. Our TW playtesters found some useful power from this one, especially when looking for some added juice to finish off a short ball or when ripping a passing shot. At net the racquet offers a very clean feeling response with excellent comfort at impact and a solid feel. Featuring HEAD's new MicroGel technology, the MicroGel material is placed throughout the hoop and is designed to react at contact and distribute shock around the frame. Our on court testing has revealed that the MicroGel Extreme plays with a great deal more softness and comfort than one would expect from a stiff and light frame design. HEAD have also designed the hoop of the Extreme racquets to be wider at the sweetspot, allowing the ball to slide further across the stringbed for improved spin production as well as offering improved racquet stability. This impressive racquet is well worth a demo if you're a 4.0+ level player seeking maneuverability, spin and some useful pop from your racquet.

Please note this racquet does not come with a cover
