Tennis Racquet Preview 2016 HEAD Graphene XT Prestige Series

This year’s Head racquet release centers on the Prestige line of player-oriented, performance tennis racquets. With GrapheneXT integration into the Speed and Instinct tennis racquet lines in 2014, and into the Extreme and Radical lines in 2015, the Prestige is now up to par with the rest of HEAD’s performance racquets.

HEAD Prestige Gets the Graphene XT Upgrade

Technical players often compensate for lack of swing-weight by hitting the tennis ball closer to the tip of the racquet. Bring your shots back to center with HEAD’s Graphene XT innovations.

This tennis racquet technology begins with fused GrapheneXT material at opposite ends of the racquet. The distribution of stronger, lighter material to the racquet’s grip and tip creates a faster, more powerful swing, without sacrificing maneuverability.
