360+ Extreme Pro

Hey ,
Guys you need to check this racquet out. Currently speaking for myself and not for friends , students. Been using Blade v7 18x20 with HyperG 16L 51lbs , have tried some other 16x19 tight pattern racquets cause I could use something more user friendly. Yesterday I tried a friend's Pro , damn a more powerful 360+ Extreme Tour with more spin and precision , a spinnier Radical Mp and a more maneuverable Ezone98 and all these with a user friendly 100sq head size.

Demo it asap.

Playing the 360+ Extreme Pro since October after i switched from the Speed MP to the Gravity MP and then Gravity Pro.
In January i bought an Extreme Tour out of curiosity, because of all the positive reviews.
I'm still trying some Lead Setups with the Tour and for now its weight,Balance Point and Swingweight is very similar to the Pro.
Not on purpose. I added Lead @12 and 3+9, put some Blu Tack in the handle, added an overgrip and when it felt fine, the specs were nearly the same as the Pro.

My Pro was nearly on Spec, unstrung 315 gr and 31,7 Balance Point. Dunno about SW.
So was the Tour , 305 gr 31,6.
I really don't know why Head doesn't sell it in the US and Canada because for me the Pro is the best racket i played with.
I have zero problem with flatting out shots without losing control. Maybe it's the tighter String pattern in the center in comparison to the MP.
It's much more maneuverable than the Gravity Pro with more Spin and same Stability Level i would say.
It doesn't feel like a 315 gr racket.
On clay this thing is so much fun without being a bazooka.
All serves are more Powerful and easier than with the Tour Version.

I love both rackets.
But for me i would say if you like Backhand Slicing, Drop shots, Touch and Feel i would go with the Tour.
If you like an Aggressive Baseline (heavy) Topspin Game or maybe Serve and Volley or need more pop and control , i would go with the Pro.
Against heavy hitter i think the Pro has the Edge over the Tour.
Returns feel so good with the Pro.

I play both with Hyper G Soft 1.25 / Ghost Wire 1.22.
I really think that many people wo love their Tour and customized it, would also like the Pro without the need of (much) customization.

If you can get your hands on a Pro, you should definitely Demo it.

How in the world do either of you suggest we demo it?

I just checked and it is not available on TW.

There is simply no way to get one. It’s not even (really) available on the bay. How did you get yours?

How am I supposed to try or demo this?

Im sure there’s a TGT code that I could probably search out on pro stock tennis, I guess

I have also searched on this forum and there are none for sale.

I went to TWE and there was no Demo button. So I tried to purchase it off TWE and this is what it said:
“Due to manufacturer's restrictions, certain items in your cart are not available for export outside of the European Economic Area.

To proceed with your order, you must remove these products or change your shipping address.

Depending on your country, the product(s) may be available at Tennis Warehouse or Tennis Only Australia.”

This is one if the most unavailable racquets (in the US) at the moment.

TW -unavailable
TE -unavailable
The Bay - one available from Germany (shipping unspecified)
Pro Stock Tennis - unavailable
Racquet guys - unavailable
A mazon - unavailable
TT classifieds - unavailable

SmashInn has one available for $153 but I’ve never heard of this company and the price is seems a little low.

That's why i said "IF" you can get your hands on one.
Maybe Relatives in Europe? Holiday in Europe? xD
I'm in Germany so i can get it from TWE and nearly every Online Tennis Shop.
So i don't know how difficult it is to get European stuff to the US and i didn't know that even retailers don't sell it in the US.
That's weird from HEAD.

since they are not in the states, reviews of this stick on the tube... how many do you think there are, in english?

the nerd grazes over it in a review of all the 360+ extremes, that's basically it!

I'll post a review in about a week or so, too slammed right now

I don’t understand why this can’t be shipped to the US from TWE, even if it’s a manufacturer thing?
Have you looked at other European dealers? I know of one that ships to the US (at least I think they will. I just added it to my cart, chose my address for shipping, and it didn’t complain).

Came to ~ $140 shipped too.

If you're lucky you can get a 360+ Extreme Pro for approx. 130€ on sale.
I paid 139€ for mine, but a couple weeks earlier i could have get it for 124€ on sale. Just didn't pull the trigger.

If you find one for 140$ incl. shipping, my first thought would be scam or you chose the 360 Model instead of the 360+.
BUT i could be wrong xD Maybe your European Dealer has a hell of a Sale going on.

£92.50 + £20 shipping at “World of Stringers” on sale, which comes to ~ $140. It’s the 360+ Pro.

“World of Stringers” is not a scam. They’re a company in England. I’ve ordered many items from them, multiple times, including strings and racquets.

Note that that is not their actual name. They’re blocked on TT, and while I normally order from Tennis Warehouse, it’s tough to justify when I can get reels of YPTP at $85 vs $220.

Assuming we're on the same page, then as McLovin above, have ordered multiple times from there, including my current pair of Gravity Pro's. They even measured the rackets they had in stock for Weight, Balance and Swingweight so I could get a pair that were as closely matched as possible.

Highly recommend subscribing to their newsletter since each weekend they usually have a 20% off code for different string brands, this week is Weisscannon, think a few weeks ago was Head etc.

It’s the right place. You have to add it to your cart and select shipping to the US. Then the VAT is removed (brings it down to £92.50). But shipping is ~ £20, so now you’re back up to £112.50, which is ~ $140.

I got mine from Eu, paid around $300 all in.
Hit with it about an hour.

need to be on my game 100% for my forehand to work, it's got some zip for sure, similar to the tour/mp in that regard.
but WAY better on serve and net.
10/10 on serve and net

64 RA is nice for a 100 with this much pop and stability, and feel! I think it's a unique offering

decided to move on, and stick with my ez98DR

so this racquet is 100 points lower on the head power scale, when compared with the tour
so LESS power.
do you all agree with that?

It's weird but i think the Pro feels a bit stiffer than the Tour and has more Power.
Maybe it just feels that way because of the thicker beam and much more stability.
I didn't have to tweak the Pro as it is perfect for me. Enough Power, control, plow through and stability.
My Stock Tour had much less Power, bit more vibrations and wasn't as stable as the Pro.
I had to put some lead to 12, 3 & 9 + handle to get it similar to the Pro and is now my main stick 80% of the time.
Against heavy Server/hitter i prefer the Pro.

But as always, it's subjective and based on feel.

yea, I just took her out for one last spin. had to put it on the big auction site - as nobody wants it here.
it's got some pop for sure.
it's like a Pure Aero but more solid on impact, better feel, more comfortable. little too heavy for me.

I found the Extreme Pro has more power in stock form than the Extreme Tour, but once the Tour is modified with weight, it's thinner beam and greater manoeuvrability may allow it to be swung faster and therefore develop more power. I haven't had the Extreme Pro for long enough. I need more time with it, whereas the ET I have played with for much longer (so I may be more used to it and therefore able to extract more out of it).

One thing is for sure... they can both produce lots of power and excellent control once the right weight and string combo is found.

How does the 360+ Pro compare to the previous 360 Pro model? I use an XT Extreme Pro currently, and tried the 360 Pro and liked the more traditional head shape, but it didn't feel as comfortable as the XT version (where the whole thing feels like a sweetspot). The 360 I felt was a little more jarring toward the sides. Just wanted to see if there are any comparisons between the 2?

I switched from the Prestige Pro 360 to the Extreme 360+ Pro. I was a former coach and played some tournaments when I was young. No I have to admit, that I just want to play little bit more with ease.

The Extreme Pro plays like a Pure Aero, however the spin is little bit less but the stiffness is lower and therefore easier on the arm. The Extreme Pro is highly underrated in my opinion. I can swing big, hit the targets and generate great topspin. Somethimes the ball flies long, but this is something you can work on.

I completely agree with everything you have said.

I got the Extreme Tour (ET) first. That racquet definitely needs to be modified with some weight to get the best out of it (IMO). I love the ET. Recently, I got the Extreme Pro and find that it is great from the perspective that it is comfortable, stable, and great on defence. Where I'm having a few issues, and this may be due to the fact I haven't spent enough time with it, is when I'm trying to aggressively transition from defence to offence. This is where the ball flies on me occasionally, and where I find the ET (modified to similar static weight, SW and balance to the EP) to be superior (with that racquet... the more you put in, the more it feels to focus in like a laser). I agree that with practice and technique, I think I can achieve the same with the Extreme Pro.

To me, it seems like the two racquets (the ET and EP) are mirror images of one another. What I mean by that is that the Extreme Pro is really solid and potent on the lower end (with less effort) but gets a bit unruly on the top end (more effort to reign it in), while the ET needs a bit more effort on the lower end (to be as potent), but really excels on the top end (the harder you push, the more it sings).

Looking forward to the Auxetic Extremes being released soon.

You need to add more spin with offensive shots, like with the pure aero. Otherwise they will fly long on flat shots. With this in mind, I haven’t missed an offensive shot out from the halfcourt the last match.

So, you don't think you can flatten your shots out like with the Extreme Tour?

Because using the same strings and the same gauge in both racquets (ET and EP), I am able to hit very flat driving shots with the ET (from behind the service line and in and around the baseline)... and with the EP they tend to fly out more. With the Extreme Pro you think the answer is powerful spin shots instead.
