Head Graphene 360+ Speed S
I think we all know what “Pro and MP” mean but what about “S”? I am not sure, so we are going to call it “Special”!
The Speed S is indeed special and probably one of the best all-around racquets for 2020! You will see by the specs why this may be the case but a couple of things stand out. A 100 square inch head size. A uniform 16×19 string pattern and 25mm beam producing the stiffness of RDC 64!
The overall weight and swing weight are just right for most advancing players and can be modified when the need arises! This is really a “players” racquet in disguise!
While I was doing this post I realized how difficult it is to switch between racquet reviews to see a comparison so here is a link to the Head Graphene 360+ Speed Series Comparison.
