Head updates the Extreme S with some extra stability, power and spin. At 280 grams, this racket accelerates with remarkable speed. As such, it is perfect for novice players who wants to start hitting with more pace and spin. This racket should also work for the intermediate player who places a premium on maneuverability. The Extreme S benefits from Graphene 360, which is a material technology that strengthens the racquet at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock. It also comes with 360 Spin Grommets, which uses larger funnel shaped grommets to enable greater string movement and vicious snapback (thin heavy ball rotation). From the baseline, the Extreme S swings fast and offers extremely easy access to spin. It also feels solid at impact thanks to its head heavy balance, giving it impressive stability and power for its weight class. At net, the Extreme S not only moves into position with impressive speed, but it has enough mass in the head to feel solid and stable when redirecting pace. This racket also shines on service returns where it comes around fast to deliver easy access to spin and power. With some impressive teaks to the feel and response, this update to Extreme S is perfect for improving players who want to start playing more aggressive tennis.
