The Head Youtek IG Extreme MP 2.0 introduces a new S-Tech grommet system, and also continues use of lightweight Innegra fiber to improve shock absorption and stability. Also continues d3o dynamic material technology in a 'tweener specification, yet still player-oriented package.
Standard 27 inch length offers excellent maneuverability with other specifications remaining very consistent with previous Extreme MP's - 100 square inch head, wider 24/26/23mm tapered beam and 11.3 oz. strung weight. Slightly rounded head shape as well as 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.
