The Head Range
The Radical rackets are probably best known for the two belligerent scrappers who have carried this stick to Grand Slam titles, Andre Agassi and Andy Murray.
The Radicals are modern players rackets that bring great speed and a combination of power, spin, control and feel, that makes them a great middle ground for players.
There are a lot of different options within this family, so whatever your standard you can find a racket that suits you.
The name gives you a hint here! The Speed rackets are designed to maximize your racket head speed, but they do much more than just that.
Speed rackets are known for excellent control, and lovely feel as well as their obvious speed.
The Head Speed sticks are great for players who love to attack the ball with full aggressive swings and really take control of the point.
With options for beginners, all the way up to pro players, these rackets have been a real hit.
Another of the most iconic rackets of all time, the Head Prestige was the racket of choice for the great Marat Safin. These tennis rackets ooze control, precision, stability and feel and are ideal for players who naturally generate a ton of power.
While Head has done a good job of modernizing these rackets and making options that are a bit more accessible, they are generally better suited to more experienced players.
You have to be confident in your technique to get the most out of these sticks.
The Gravity rackets are the newest addition to Head’s lineup and they surely did a very good job with them.
They are designed to bring modern comfort without having to compromise on performance, and we think they are really special.
Gravity rackets make playing tennis comfortable and effortless, and there is an option for all levels of player.
For players looking for control, spin and comfort, these are great rackets to check out.
The name sums up the racket – this racket is for big swinging, modern players who are looking to add some power and spin to their game.
Famously wielded by Frenchman Richard Gasquet, these rackets help players hit heavy shots that force opponents backwards.
Once again, there are a number of different options within the Extreme family so you will be able to find a weight and setup that suits you.
Used on tour by Maria Sharapova, the Head Instinct rackets are aimed at beginner and intermediate players, offering a user-friendly experience and access to plenty of power and spin.
The Instinct rackets are easy to swing and help make tennis a little easier for people starting out in the game.
The S series of rackets offer a more user-friendly option for beginner and intermediate players, with reduced weight and more open string patterns.
The S rackets are there to help out players who are still learning and developing their game.
The MP rackets are Head’s middle ground rackets. Weight-wise, they come in between the PRO and the S rackets and they look to balance performance and usability.
Best suited to intermediate and lower-level advanced players, these rackets will suit a wide variety of players.
The PRO models are geared towards performance. They are heavier, with bigger swing weights and more closed string patterns.
These rackets are aimed at experienced, advanced players who are confident in their swings.
Like Babolat and Wilson, Head has a range of Lite rackets which are perfect for beginners and younger players.
These rackets are easy to swing but they are not geared towards performance at a high level.
