Racket review: HEAD Graphene PWR Speed
‘Squaring’ the stringbed boosts both the sweet spot and power output
Like to get up to the net? The HEAD Graphene PWR Speed could be for you
Based on the technology used in Novak Djokovic’s racket, the PWR Speed twins power and oversize dimensions with the added manoeuvrability of a featherlight frame.
Super-strong Graphene strengthens the throat, allowing head to place more weight at the tip of the frame where it helps the racket plough through the ball despite the low static weight.
They have also built it with the QuadFace stringing configuration, which lengthens the strings in the corners of the frame, ‘squaring’ the stringbed to boost both the sweet spot and power output. Ideal for those with short to medium swings who spend a lot of time at the net.
