Head has no shortage of racquet silos. Whether more classic control frames (Prestige, Gravity), big power and spin models (Extreme, Instinct) or something in-between (Radical, Speed), there are options for just about every player and style.
Yet for all of its offerings, the brand felt it lacked a user-friendly, pick-up-and-play frame with mass appeal. Something that the majority of the tennis playing population could use and compete with along the lines of the Babolat Pure Drive and Wilson Clash. After years of development and testing, Head believes it has something to fill that role.
While the official name and cosmetic reveal of the racquet won’t happen until November, a black prototype has been made available to a select audience, including tennis.com. So far, “You Got This”—emblazoned on the frame’s throat—is its moniker. Racquet junkies may have spotted the early frames on social media accompanied by the #HEADYouGotThis.
