Head updates Novak Djokovic's racquet of choice the Speed Pro and the result is a crisper feeling racquet that has a touch more power, but still possessing great control and feel.
The Speed Pro is the heaviest racquet in the Speed family, however, at 10.9 ounces unstrung (310 grams) it is far from sluggish. In fact, like the name eludes to, generating racquet head speed is fairly straight forward with this racquet. Especially when compared to other racquets in the players racquet category. This is thanks to its 8 point headlight balance (315 mm) and restively low swingweight of 322 (strung). Even though it is on the lighter end of the players racquet weight spectrum, the Speed Pro possesses plenty of stability. The addition of Graphene 360 in the racquet's shaft as well as the racquet's head at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock, strengthens the racquet in these key areas and contributes to enhanced stability as well as adding a touch more pop compared to the previous Speed Pro.
Head has made some other changes in this update. This new version has a little less of the shock dampening Kriabon material in its makeup. Meaning it's still comfortable, thanks to a low flex rating of 62 RA, but has a slightly crisper feel and a provides a little more feedback at impact. This latest version of the Speed Pro has an ever so slightly thicker beam width (23mm vs 22mm) bringing a touch more power into the mix. The 18x20 string pattern helps control some of the power, but does not sacrifice spin. If fact Head has widened the spacing of the cross strings in the sweetspot to help provide even greater spin potential.
With a touch more power, a little crisper feel and more access to spin this latest version of the Speed Pro should appeal to fans of the previous versions of the racquet as well as those players that are looking for a responsive and maneuverable modern players racquet.
