Head Graphene Touch Extreme Lite (265g)



Beginner and intermediate level players looking for power, spin and precision should love this update to Head's ultra fast Extreme Lite. For this racquet, Head has widened the string spacing noticeably, giving you a tighter grip on the ball (think easy spin). At only 9.9 ounces strung, this stick accelerates with lightning speed, making it easy for you to increase stroke speed when more pace is needed.

The Extreme Lite is built with Graphene Touch, which is the most dampened and comfortable version of Head's polarized weight system. It also comes with Head's new 360 Grommet system, which utilizes larger, funnel shaped grommets to optimize string movement. The result, according to Head, is a stringbed that not only absorbs more shock, but delivers greater dwell time, snapback and power.

From the baseline this racquet feels fast, crisp and accurate. Burgeoning topspin players will have the tools to whip up big spin, while more advanced players will find the needed maneuverability to crank winners on the run. At net this racquet's light weight assures that you won't be caught off guard. The light and whippy feel also helps on serve where you'll find a racquet that explodes through contact to deliver easy targeting.

Ultimately, with the Graphene Touch Extreme Lite, Head packs easy spin and power into a wonderfully light package. This is a must demo for the rising player who wants to start playing more aggressive tennis. It should also work for the veteran who needs an ultra light option.
