The Speed Team with the "sensational feel" of Auxetic construction is one of the most user friendly members of the Speed family of racquets and one of the best choices for intermediate players looking to take their game to the next level. Lighter than the heavier models, it's the perfect choice for the occasional fast-swinging player who needs a light racquet and extra maneuverability.
The Speed Team weighs in at an average 10.1 ounces unstrung which will provide a blend of power, stability and manoeuvrability. Players will have an easier time generating racquet head speed with confidence to take big swings for powerful shots and easier depth. Due to the head-light balance and weight, the racquet won't feel sluggish and instead will provide players with great racquet speed and manoeuvrability for increased spin potential and quick, dynamic volleys. The head size at 100 square inches provides a relatively generous sweet spot with good access to power potential and some comfort. The open string pattern will increase the pop off the string bed for a relative increase in power potential, provide a bit more comfort as well as enable easier access to spin. The racquet's relative flexibility allows for greater comfort as well as enhanced feel of the ball.
On the technology side, HEAD brings Auxetic technology to the Speed 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 Speed series so popular and a favourite among top pros like Novak Djokovic and Bianca Andreescu - the ability to deliver on a game full of speed.
The base specs on this version are comparable to the previous and popular Graphene 360+ Speed S, so this new frame should feel right at home in the hands of those players. Players will find enhanced feel to bring even more confidence to their games. This racquet feels great and should provide the extras needed to help with and to improve your game.
