Head MicroGel Extreme MP Tennis Racquet

The Head MicroGel Extreme MP is Head's venture into offering a true 'tweener frame-100 sq. in. head, 27.25" length, 24mm/26mm beam, and 11.1 oz. strung weight. Another improvement Head has made with the Extreme to traditional racquets is immediately visible: the geometrics of the racquet head size are changed making it wider and rounder. This increased width can allow the ball to slide across a wider stringbed, generating greater spin velocity and providing more power.

The Head Extreme also offers aggressive, competitive players ultimate feel and unique touch through patented technology called MicroGel. When combined with carbon composite fibers in the racquet head, MicroGel deforms and compresses upon ball impact, uniformly absorbing and distributing the impact load around the entire frame, creating a rock-solid feel while offering extra stability against twisting.

Note: This racquet is pre-strung with Head Sonic Pro 16 at Head's recommended tension of 57 lbs.

I love this racket. I let my friend borrow it, and he ended up ordering one just like mine. The little copycat!

I have been using this racquet for a number of years. I have tried other Head racquets and have even tried Wilson and Babolat but always come back to this racquet. It gives me the right amount of power and control

My son has been playing with this racket for two years now and kids can bang up rackets. Midwest had the best price and frankly, the best service of any of the online stores so I was able to replace two for him. I'm sure we will need more soon. Not to mention grips, overgrips, and other cool tennis stuff. Thanks....!!!

3 Stars different from radical for sure

Tried to switch from Radical (18*20) to this 16*19 as its spec is close to Babolat; however, the feel was different and lack of control compared to radical.

5 Stars Good Racquet

I have been playing with the Extreme for 4 years. Wore 3 completely out(cracked, scratched up, etc.) Midwest was the only place I could find them. All around good racquet. Best tweener on the market

The first time I hit a ball, I immediately felt the difference. There was more power and spin to my hits! Definitely a great buy for me!

5 Stars Best racquet ive ever owned!

Great feel and control, also lots of power! I wanted a light racquet with a little weight on the head for extra power, this racquet is the one. Money wise spent ,you want regret this purchase!
