Description

A big factor in the pursuit of creating great tennis racquets has always been finding the perfect balance of power and control, normally regarded as being two inversely related properties. Add more power and you will lose some control and vise versa. It was with finding the perfect balance of power and control in mind that lead Head to develop their latest technology: MXG. To learn more about the MXG technology click on the "Technology" tab.

The MXG 5 is one of 2 new racquets being introduced by Head with their new MXG technology (the other being the MXG 3). The MXG five nicely bridges the gap between tweener racquets and game improvement racquets and should appeal to strong beginner players as well as intermediate and advanced players looking for easy access to power without sacrificing too much control. Coming equipped with a 105 square inch head which thanks to MXG technology feels even larger than that, offering a larger forgiving sweet spot and plenty of pop. Keeping the power in check is the revolutionary magnesium throat design that prevents the racquets hoop from deforming at impact and thus supplying the control. The 9.7 ounce unstrung weight (275 grams) will appeal to those players that like their racquets lightweight without being too light and thus unstable (a common drawback with light racquets and hard hitters). A flex rating of 68 combined with the shock-absorbing qualities of Graphene Touch make for a racquet that is very easy on the arm. The MXG would be a great choice for players looking for a lightweight, powerful and arm-friendly racquet that still offers plenty of control.

  • Head Size: 105 sq. inches / 675 sq. cm
  • Length: 27.2 inches / 69 cm
  • Weight: 9.7 oz. / 275 g unstrung
  • Balance: 3 pts head light / 335 mm unstrung
  • Swing Weight: 313 strung
  • Beam width: 24mm / 26mm / 22mm
  • Flex: 68 RA
  • Tension Range: 48-57 lbs / 22-26 kg
  • String Pattern: 16/18
  • MXG:
    This is how Head explains their MXG technology: The ultimate combination of power and control in one racquet. Until now, tennis racquets have offered either power or control, but Head was determined to combine both. Thanks to research and development, you no longer have to choose. The Revolutionary technology "MXG" merges two materials, Graphene and Magnesium, for the ultimate balance of power and control... like no other. Using an engineering process that is widely used in the automotive industry, the injection molded magnesium bridge is precision formed and provides ultimate stability at a very low weight. The secret to the "Power under Control" lies in the innovative magnesium bridge that is specifically designed for longer, free-moving main strings. This provides a much larger sweet spot and more power. At the same time, the solid magnesium bridge keeps the hoop from deforming and offers total control on every shot. MXG gives you power under control like no other.
  • Graphene Touch:
    Now, the ground-breaking technology gets the ultimate update: the re-engineered Graphene Touch combines the power of Graphene with improved shock absorption upon impact resulting in an incredible touch and great sound. From the beginning the original innovative Graphene technology delivered increased power and maneuverability through optimized weight distribution. Throughout the years this revolutionary technology helped a big number of HEAD players win important victories and tournaments. With the perfect power level taken care of, HEAD started to re-engineer the world’s strongest yet lightest material and added a unique shock-absorbing material to the frame construction. The result is less shock thanks to faster vibration reduction after ball impact and an unparalleled touch providing consumers with even more wow moments. All this without compromising on the power level of Graphene that players and consumers around the world have come to appreciate. In other words: power never felt so good.
