The Head Youtek IG Extreme Pro 2.0 introduces a new S-Tech grommet system, which along with the continued use of lightweight Innegra fiber improves shock absorption and stability. Also continues d3o dynamic material technology in a player-oriented package.
Keeping most specifications consistent with past generations of Head Extremes, the YouTek Extreme Pro 2.0 offers a 100 square inch head, wider 24/26/23mm tapered beam, standard 27 inch length, and 11.8 oz. strung weight. Slightly rounded head shape as used on past generations of Extremes for improved spin potential. Open 16x19 string pattern for enhanced spin and forgiveness. Note: Head does not include a cover with this racquet. Midwest Sports only ships Head products to domestic addresses in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.
Head introduces d3o technology in the Head YouTek line, and is a "smart" material in that it behaves differently under varying dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the frame lay-up and positioned in the shaft area (where the racquet flexes the most), d3o seeks to help players maximize performance on all shots. High speed impacts lock d3o together within nanoseconds at the molecular level, stiffening the frame to provide maximum power. Conversely, on slower speed impacts, the d3o molecules absorb the impact providing softer touch for better feel.
