Head Graphene 360 + Gravity MP

The new Head Gravity MP seemed like the perfect place to start with this new series of racquets so that is what we did!

We believe this racquet falls between the Prestige and Radical series and will appeal to more players than either of those.  Plus, there are two (2) 104 square inch models, the Lite, and S.  These are relativley “thin” beam, (Lite and S = 24.4mm) racquets that Head has been missing, in my opinion, for a while.

It has a “flip” color scheme…one side is lava and the other is Miami Green (my word).

The head shape is a little more round.  The weight is 312 grams (11.01 oz) which I think is a little light.  The swing weight is 324 kg/cm² ( a good starting point).

The unique fiber layup is designed to “uncoil” at impact contributing to a new kind of power, and hopefully comfort.

The Series consists of a “Pro”, “MP”. “MP Lite”, “S”,  and”Lite”.  There is a Model Comparison post where you can see all of the racquets in one place.
