How Does the Head Speed Pro perform?

Head's Speed series branding was originally introduced in a tennis racket line jointly developed with Novak Djokovic. This series has been launched to replace the Alpha Series.
All rackets in the series have teardrop shapes, carbon fiber + Graphite frames, silicon vibration-reducing end caps, Power FOAM cores, and smooth surfaces.
This racket is designed for upper intermediate players. It has the power of a high balance racket with a medium-hard touch.
Head’s frames and cores are quite rigid, so despite not being made with a full carbon fiber surface, it is more rigid than many “full carbon” rackets from other brands.

Despite being a hard racket, the feeling is very nice. I usually prefer softer touches, but I really like this one, especially at the front of the court.

Best for intermediate players who want to go from a round racket to a teardrop for a bit more power.

Timo (Padel.FYI)

Great intermediate versatile racket for intermediate players looking for a pinch of extra power without sacrificing a big sweet spot nor too much maneuverability.
