    Frame Shape: Teardrop

    During the 2015-2016 season Head went away from their traditional frame shape and came out with their new Delta (Teardrop) power frame. It was such a success that they are bringing it back for the 2017-2018 season with what they are calling the Graphene Touch Extreme Series. Once again they have stuck with unstrung weights of 155, 165 and 175. The Graphene Touch Series new features are as follows:

    Graphene Touch:

    • HEAD Engineers have modified the Graphene layup in order to improve shock absorption upon impact by adding their new Kraibon technology
    • This delivers unparalleled comfort without compromising the power level of Graphene
    • This has a whole creates the perfect combination of power and comfort

    Just about everyone that played with the original XT Extreme series thought the frame was awesome but a few wish it had just a tad more control. This new enhanced version now has it all so players will get power, control, and touch all in one. Try one out today!

    Delta Frame Shape:

    The first official Head teardrop shape racquet but unlike other brands they have a flatter frame top which Head is characterizing as giving you "effortless power."

    ASP string pattern:

    HEAD's new technology allows you to customize your string pattern to match your game. Specially designed inserts allow you to choose your string pattern every time you string. From the factory you will get the 16/16 (16 Main Strings (Up and Down) and 16 Crosses (Side to Side)) String Pattern which is for strung for Ultimate Power, Precision and Durability. If you get your string upgraded at the time of purchase with us you can get the 12/16 Pattern which is a softer feel and is really designed for the player that wants the most power possible from their racquet. If you choose the 12/16 option and don’t get your string upgraded you will get the factory 16/16 option.

    If the 155 and 165 gram racquets are too light for you check out last year's Graphene Series which comes in a 160, 170 or 180 weight range.

    These are available in the smaller 3 5/8 and the larger 3 7/8 grip sizes.

    If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.

    A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $10 if you would like.

    RacquetWorld General Notes

    RacquetWorld recommends changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, for the added traction to prevent slippage.  The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.

    The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.  It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and it’s a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.

    If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

    The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.

    A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

    We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet. 

    Racquet Covers - Choose one for $10 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)

    A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-10 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.

    Exclusive RacquetWorld Racquet Ratings

    Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in RacquetWolrd Exclusive Racquet Ratings

    Racquetworld's Durability Rating:  93.00 

    Racquetworld's Power Rating: Age 24-  94.05  Age 35  93.06  Age 45+  92.07 

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #1 (Front Court):  96.03 

    Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We are basically looking at how certain components stacked together to produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Pat's brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. It is also good to know if you are a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.

    Racquetworld's Control Rating #2 (Back Court):  94.55 

    Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.

    Racquetworld's Overall Rating: Age 24-   94.44   Age 35  93.95   Age 45+  93.45

    Graphene - New for 2014 - 2015

    Graphene exploded on the tennis world last year and has now made it over to Head's Racquetball Racquet Line..

    Discovered in 2004, Graphene - consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD racquetball racquet frames with exceptional properties. Graphene™ technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD racquets allowing for the creation of lightweight racquets with balance point never before acheived.

    Benefit:
    • Has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel.
    • Enables us to create lightweight racquets and shift the balance points down to a level we could not achieve in the past.
    • This creates increased swing speed which causes the racquet to become radically powerful.
    • In addition to the increased power, the racquet also becomes very maneuverable.

    Power Channels

    Power Channels

    Head takes Power Channels to the next level! This power technology is created through molded tubes in the throat, eliminating exterior string holes and the traditional grommet system. This lengthens each main string and creates maximum stiffness which results in an incredible increase in raw power. The Power Channels are now equiped with Teflon friction reducing polymer allowing the strings to slide through the Power Channels with nearly no friction resulting in maximum energy transfer which increases power on every shot


    Power Stabilizers

    Power Stabilizers

    Head panteted twin-tube technology has been strategically positioned in the head of the racquet to provide maximum stability on every shot.
