How Does the Head Speed Elite perform?

Head originally introduced the “Speed” series branding in a tennis racket line jointly developed with Novak Djokovic. This series has been launched to replace the Alpha Series of padel rackets.
All rackets in the series have teardrop shapes, carbon fiber + Graphite frames, silicon vibration-reducing end caps, Head’s Power FOAM cores, and smooth surfaces.
The Speed Elite is the least expensive and most beginner-friendly model of the line. With a fully fiberglass surface, it has a medium-soft touch that is forgiving and gives good ball output around the court and will help in the defensive game.
Missing the sweet spot is not penalized in a racket like this so it will help you get out from under pressure situations.
It has a medium balance with a medium-soft touch.

Good sweet spot, it defends well, but it’s definitely not as maneuverable as the Speed Motion. Medium-soft touch.
