Head - 2017 Graphene XT Extreme LITE

Head updates the Extreme Lite with an even more infectious blend of power, speed and spin. This model comes with the next generation of Graphene (called Graphene XT), a unique substance used in the throat so that weight can be strategically redeployed to the handle and tip. The result is a racquet with greater momentum and easier access to power. At 10 ounces strung this stick will give strong beginners a maneuverable weapon that swings easy and offers plenty of comfort, especially when strung with a multifilament string. Intermediate players looking for a light racquet with controllable power and easy access to spin should also like this racquet. From the baseline the Extreme Lite feels explosive and accurate. Burgeoning topspin players will find very easy access to spin. The light weight definitely comes in handy at net, where this stick plays great on fast exchanges. Finally, the combination of speed and precision on serves should lead to some very confident targeting. Head keeps a good thing going with this update to the Extreme Lite. From juniors looking to transition into an adult frame to intermediates in search of a more explosive option, this racquet has very broad appeal.
