Dude, you're talking about 2 very different things.I was told it's coming to the custom
Anything wrong with talking about "different things"? Aren't we all here to do just that?Dude, you're talking about 2 very different things.
We are talking retails here, not the custom service.
The proto-demo pj is avaialble for the racquets in the custom service, but if you're after only a new pj then 400 is very steap...
It's the same as if you said that the Wilson Pro Staffs came in yellow, red, blue etc. paintjobs. They don't, but you can get them in those pjs through Wilson custom service.
I also don’t get this. I’ve never played with old raquets and I finaly found the raquet that realy ups my game and just feels right. Its the new Graphene touch prestige mid. All i see here is comparisons with the old raquets.Why does everyone hate graphene so much? I never hit with the older Heads.
I've recently switched from my IG Radical MP's to the XT Speed MP and I'm really enjoying it. You can feel the difference, but a nice solid feel when you hit the sweet spot. And the PJ on the LTD is nice.Why does everyone hate graphene so much? I never hit with the older Heads.
HSR 3 got laid off because only about 150 people bought a Phantom 93P and prince went under.*Head in marketing meeting*
Head Sales Rep 1: "Our sales are decreasing, we have to sell more racquets!"
HSR 2: "Let's make new paintjobs and rename our Graphene technology something like Graphene 360!"
HSR 1: "Omg what a wonderful idea! Of course we'll sell more racquets this way"
HSR 3: "But wait why don't we discard the Graphene tech and make racquets more like we used to? Many customers seem to want this."
HSR 1+2: "Of course not! We're tryin' to run a business here! If you wanna make a 'customer-friendly' company you can go elsewhere."
HSR 3 went on to become the guy from Prince who collaborated with TW to make the Phantom 93P.
Yeah, cause 90 square inch frames sold so well... oh wait... with the exception of 90s used by Fed they didn't. Look at sales stats from times when Head, Dunlop and so on offered 90 sq. inch frames. They simply did not sell.Head is brain dead not to make a 90” speed pro....
The one I hit with had "Head.com/Patents" in the throat... interesting...Just got the new head speed mp, 360,, model
all black, even throat piece; it also reads "one of a thousand", in small print, inside the throat area..
10.8 unstrung, 11.2 strung weight, 4pts HL
16/19 OPEN pattern, 100"sqr
will hit soon with it..
This one also says head.com further down the "y" section, but near the top of the inside "y", it reads "one of a thousand",,The one I hit with had "Head.com/Patents" in the throat... interesting...
Let us know! I much prefer the Graphene Touch version. The 360 has more feel, but more shock and a lot less comfortable.
I don't remember, honestly. I just remembered it was a Babolot-esque PJ down at the throat a la the Pure Strike. Didn't like the new Graphene 360 as much as the Graphene Touch version. Felt more metallicky - which is what some people like, apparently.This one also says head.com further down the "y" section, but near the top of the inside "y", it reads "one of a thousand",,
did your speed.mp.360 have the white throat?
Which do you prefer?I switched out the string tonight and hit again,
it had the new lime head.lynx 17g strings, at 52/50lbs, was too powerful
tonight I strung it with 16lg basic poly, at 51lbs,,
the head.sonic.pro.edge string would fit this raket great..
it felt great, solid, just the right amount of power/control
for me the 16g string helped reel back the control..
Ive hit with it several more times this past week, its a fast feeling raket!, But its 12oz static weight,,
the mp will apeal to a large number of players
the pro imo will be for the stronger male players,
the graphene.360 does change the feel of the raket, in a positive way, to me..
In regards to strings (lynx/edge), or rakets (grap.360- mp/pro)?Which do you prefer?
at the end of the day its your call but ive been very pleased with the touch speed MP and a 16 g poly at 54-55 lbs. i have demoed the new 360 frame too ... good stuff. more of a crisp ping on contact. the differences will be more subtle than earth-shattering.Newbie here from metro Detroit, first post. I'm about a 3.0 NTRP. I tried several racquets from Babolat, Yonex, Dunlop, Wilson and Head.
After weeks of trials by borrowing racquets from a local store, I narrowed my selection down to Head Speed MP.
Other racquets which came close but didn't make the cut were: Yonex eZone 98 (good feel), Babolat Pure Strike 16x19 (too demanding), Head Radical MP and Instinct MP (too dampened).
My coach recommended Radical MP because according to him, it's a racquet that I can grow into, but I didn't like the excessively dampened feel. He also said I hit best with the Speed MP of all the racquets that I tried.
Nothing from Wilson or Babolat came close to giving me the confidence I got from Head Speed MP. It was strung with Babolat Addiction 16 at around 55 lbs tension.
My local store then announced that they have the Graphene 360 Speed (GTS360) MP. They have a small demo area where I was able to hit the racquet, but I couldn't really tell the difference between Graphene 360 Speed MP and Graphene Touch Speed (GTS) MP (which is on clearance for $130, unstrung).
I have the last Graphene Touch Speed MP on hold, but it's become really hard to decide whether to go with the GTS MP or GT360 MP. I am not sure if I'll like the new racquet, and the store won't let me take the GT360 MP for demo because they only have 1 piece, and won't get any more
I am wondering how to decide whether to stick with the tried-and-tested GTS MP and save money, or wait and go with the more expensive GTS360 MP.
The store doesn't do any returns, and they will apply the $30 I spent demoing racquets towards the purchase of a new racquet.
I think you will find there are still only the 6 Mains in the Bridge of the 360MP. Though the shared holes have been eliminated as compared to previous Graphene Speed MPs.Yes it does now have 8 mains in the throat of the MP
Look again. The throat grommet is wide. 8 mains through the bridge.I think you will find there are still only the 6 Mains in the Bridge of the 360MP. Though the shared holes have been eliminated as compared to previous Graphene Speed MPs.
Head Graphene 360 Speed MP
6 mains in bridge, 300g version.
I very briefly hit it off the wall in the back of our local shop several weeks ago. Having used the XT Speed for several years, the new one is cleaner feeling but has better feedback on contact than the Touch model did. I’d have to fully hit it see if there is still the brassiness that has plagued them. It did feel like they raised the swing weight a bit. The hoop feels less flimsy than recent models although I still think too much of the mass is concentrated in the tip and tail for my liking. While it feels more stable, I still felt it needed more mass at the sides of the hoopNo more information on the Speed 360 MP? I am particulary interested in stiffness and swingweight, the 8 mains in the throat attracted me already!
