Introducing the lightest and fastest member of the Speed family, the Head Graphene 360 Speed Lite.
Quick and maneuverable, this is a fantastic option for beginners and early intermediates who desire a swift and powerful racket.
Although this version doesn't carry the same heft and stability as its colleagues, it accelerates with impressive speed, making it easier for the improving player to generate pace and spin. With the addition of Graphene 360, Head not only strengthens this racket's shaft, but it also reinforces the head at 3,9 and 12 o'clock. The upshot is a more solid feel at contact with decent power on full cuts.
On groundstrokes, this racket's easy acceleration and grippy 16x19 string pattern provides the recipe for spin, making this a nice option for the rising player who wants to start hitting a heavier ball. With the balance at 2 points head-heavy you'll find decent pop and plow through for a light racket, which comes in handy when trying to drive the ball the court.
The head heavy balance also helps when redirecting higher levels of pace on volleys. However, the dominant feature at net is speed, which makes for quicker reactions.
The speedy feel is also an asset on serve, where this stick's whippy rotational energy translates into easier power and spin.
Ultimately, this member of the Speed family puts a premium on lightweight power, and needs to be on the radar of beginners and intermediates looking to add some serious mph to their game!
