Looks like Head is releasing the beautiful NITE PJ for Extreme MP and Tour shortly.
I was bummed when they had to cancel the Radical NITE plans in 2020, but the Extreme NITE looks amazing

I assume TW will carry it in a few days...

Ugh...and I just listed my 'practically brand new' Extreme Tour in the Classifieds section. Now nobody will want it if they can get a sweet Nite PJ...

I wanted so badly to like the frame, and I do love the way it plays, but it is just too low powered for me at this point in my life. 10 years ago I would have been all over this thing, but now...

Low powered? I thought it was a rocket launcher
The Tour version, aka the Musetti racquet? I can see the Extreme MP/Pro (23mm-26mm-21mm), but the Tour version is low powered. Even the TW reviewers agreed:
"One thing that our playtesters didn't expect was the racquet's lower power level compared to the rest of the Extreme family, which enabled them to swing through the ball without the fear of hitting deep past the baseline."​

I actually prefer the standard highlighter yellow and grey PJ of the ET. The Nite looks nice, but also reminds me of a Pure Aero VS a bit. GOAT to me would be the all black ET Demo with white logos

I too would like to know. And if Head is changing the Prestige MP, because the current version is so nice in stock form
If I had to guess...and it's just a guess...The MP won't change since it was a new frame for 360+. I'm curious if there will be a change to the pro since the TGK291.xx mold has been around for four generations.

Looks sick! I still want a black Speed. Stuck with my white one but can't justify shelling out full price just for paint.

I would love a nite or shadow Speed too. Maybe a smoke or dark gray color.

The Radical nite is available in the UK. Also a 690 version.

Looks like the Extreme Nite is on Head's official site now. Still think it looks like a Babolat. Wishing they did the "Extreme" text in white!

I was going to get another couple of these, but not too keen on the yellow lettering. It’s looks better in white on the teaser frames that I have

It has to be said. Head this year between the radical and the extreme made the ugliest racquet colors I have ever seen. So the night versions are needed. If in the future they would make nicer color schemes for their new releases they wouldn’t find the need for a blacked out frame.

All personal taste. I was meh on the Extreme and thought the Radical was too loud and salmon-y when I first saw pictures. Saw them in person and I thought “Oh, that’s not too bad.” Now I think they’re probably Head’s best looking rackets, the Radical especially. I’m generally a big fan of mostly black rackets but in this case, I prefer the original Extreme paintjob (for which my wife is very grateful).

Exactly, and corresponds to the tour feedback too. Some guys love it, some don't.
I think the radical PJ looks awesome, especially in person. Extreme is great too.

Guess Head needs a PJ to live up to the Moniker

Fully disagree on the dislike of the Head colors. Sure the Radical would look better IMO with black instead of gray (same with the Extreme). But they look good and different, and the night versions look totally badness.

I like different, and it keeps the forums and internet leaks interesting!

I really like the Radical color, especially in person.

The Extreme gray is nice, albeit a bit boring.

What throws me about the ET is it’s head CPI grade of 500.
