Head Prestige MP 2021 Series
OK, here comes another racquet review!
You know our reviews are “numbers” based, not hitter based because we just like numbers! Hitters are Important but to get the most meaningful data from a racquet requires numbers. These numbers can then be applied to the feedback of the hitter.
The new Head Prestige MP 2021 is a 99 square inch head with the 18×19 string pattern so common in player style racquets. This combination may “scare off” some users but that would be a mistake in our opinion.
As you would expect this racquet is a thin box beam box design which creates an in plane stiffness of 384.6 pounds, which can be used to create a very friendly string bed stiffness. Take a look at the “effective stiffness” and you will see what we mean!
In addition to the nice in plane stiffness this racquet uses Head’s new Auxetic construction in the throat which is designed for comfort and control from each hit by allowing the throat to “expand and contract” a little.
The bright red color of last years Prestige series has been replaced with a “matt” graphite transitioning into the classic Prestige maroon around the head of the racquet making this a classic in its own right!
