The Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S gives players just about everything that the Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed MP can offer, but this racquet is a bit more maneuverable, where fast swings can create some good power and the head heavy balance ensures that players still get good plow through from their swings. The stiffness rating of 66 is well balanced for a racquet at this weight, where players can produce solid shots, but without experiencing arm fatigue. The open string pattern is very spin friendly and well suited for baseline players. Overall the racquet is perfect for beginners and intermediate players that find the MP version too much to handle.
Graphene is the new technology implemented in the YOUTEK Graphene series and consists of an extremely lightweight material that is about 200 times stronger than steel. This material is placed in the shaft, which allows Head to place more weight in the handle and the tip of the frame where it really matters, and still keep the racquet at a low weight. The resulting power increase is remarkable and players have embraced this new technology.
