Head Prestige Pro 2021

This years Head Prestige Pro is last years Prestige MP.  This name change was made to synchronize all the 18×20 string patterns as the “Pro” model…I think!

So, what’s in a name?  A thin beam, heavy (sort of), 18×20 pattern, players racquet, that’s what!  The Prestige Pro also includes the new Auxetic material and construction for a refined feel.

For some reason Head Prestige racquets have been called “stiff” by some and this is certainly not the case and never has been.   This racquet is not stiff! As with any racquet the string selection can have a huge effect on “stiffness” so take a look at the effective stiffness!

I believe this is going to be a “control freaks” racquet!  This racquet could also be a baseliners dream come true.  The weight will drive through the ball and the swing weight will allow for some last nano-second stroke adjustments.

Take at look at the data below then go to the Prestige 2021 Comparative Data post to see all the models in one place.

A baseliners dream!
