Anyone know if there is a Head Speed pro 2013?
 
Really like the specs of this racquet, but the ig version is not in the U.S. Anyone know if there's going to be a Graphene Speed Pro and if it will sell in the U.S.?

No there won't be. The Speed MP 315 will be renamed to Speed Pro though

So it will 20 grams lighter than the youtek and youtek ig version?

the head rep dropped off 8 new 2013 racquets to be strung for her demo bag.
new paint job on speed the one I saw close was 11.7 oz.
the racquet has new gimic also alled hyrogen or something like that, head claims it makes a better feel.

11.7 unstrung or strung?

Yes. Head rep came by the other day and there will be both MP and Pro versions of the Graphene Speeds. The pro with an 18x20 string pattern, 100" head and 11.1 Oz I believe.

You probably mean the new Graphene technology?

Don't see why they would change the 98 sq inch head size :-?

Bartelby 11-26-2012 04:22 PM

Because the lighter 18/20 is now relabelled the pro and the former pro is extinct according to the information someone else posted.

Wanted a more forgiving stick I guess. Head shape is different too, more oval compared to the circular heads the past couple years.

thecrusher956 11-26-2012 04:36 PM

So all new racquets are going to be 100 sq inches?

Stringers 11-26-2012 05:12 PM

I believe at least the MP and the Pro. I think the other one was the S or the Rev? That was either 100 or maybe a little bigger. Then there's the PWR series coming out too and I think those are all oversized.

thecrusher956 11-26-2012 05:18 PM

Wow, is the pro going to be in U.S. this time?

vetinari 11-26-2012 06:06 PM

I don't think so. They're just updating the speed line naming to fit with their other lines which have a pro, mp and s. from what I've heard the speed pro will be similar to the mp, but 18x20. Will know more on Friday.

Are you talking to a rep on Friday?

vetinari 11-27-2012 05:40 PM

Head demo night at my club. Will talk to the rep then hopefully.

thecrusher956 11-29-2012 01:39 PM

Looking forward to the results.

vetinari 11-29-2012 04:24 PM

Anything in particular you'd like to know if I get a chance to talk with the rep?

Head Speed Pro
 
Hey,
My name is John. If you had a chance to ask him, it would be great to hear the supposed swingweights for the new Speed Pro and the new Speed MP. Just curious. Thanks.
