The Extreme MP with the "sensational feel" of Auxetic construction helps you to spin big for a dynamic and aggressive game that should appeal to a wide range of players from intermediate to advanced and even some strong beginners.
The headsize at 100 square inches provides a blend of control and power with a forgiving feel. Coupled with the headsize, the open string pattern has a lively feel with easier access to spin. The weight being heavier than average at 10.6 ounces (unstrung) brings more general stability and stopping power for increased power potential, big return of serves and the ability to load up on spin for those who can swing it. Its head-light balance (increased from the previous iteration) aids your ability to move the frame even more quickly, an important factor in generating power as well as being conducive to fast movements at the net for game-changing volleys or being able to swing fast for greater spin generation. The beam thickness enhances and optimizes the stability of the frame for greater energy transfer and power across the string-bed, something more common in the 100 square inch racquets of the modern era being developed for spin and power.
On the technology side, HEAD brings Auxetic technology to the Extreme line. Head's Auxetic is an adaptive technology that optimizes ball feedback depending on where the ball is hit on the stringbed. The Graphene technology is being used to strengthen the frame for enhanced stability and power. The other technologies listed in the "technology" section further optimize what makes the Extreme series the ideal spin-oriented frame.
Combined with the core technologies, updates and specs, this racquet is a dangerous weapon for players who want to maximize their spin and power.
The Extreme series is endorsed by Matteo Berrettini.
