Sounds like the pro is a larger, more forgiving ultra tour 18x20

TW reviews - the Pro is great for old school guys like Mark and doubles players. The MP is too light and underpowered.

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the tour model would have probably been a huge hit with the people demoing the MP, and would compete well with the Blade, Pure Strike and Vcore Pro - all very popular frames.

At least Head is starting to make good frames again. It sounds like the feel of these is a lot more classic, but if there is not enough plow and depth, nice feel is more of a luxury. I still think their best line is the Extreme and has been for years, with the Speed a nice runner up.

This gravity line is launching a sneak attack on blades 98, 104 and the fake h19.

HEAD Gravity Pro – the heaviest racquet in the series. More control, higher swing weight, more plow-through, thinner beam, a bit tougher to swing unless you are an advanced player. Nice, soft feel on impact while still retaining good power. Not a Pure Drive by any means, but a more forgiving player racquet. Does not require any customization in my opinion. My favorite of the bunch and a contestant for next racquet of choice for me. Score: 90/100 for me

HEAD Gravity Tour – plays quite close to the Pro but with a bit less weight in the handle and a thicker beam for slightly more power. Easier to transition to for someone coming from a Wilson Blade or Tecnifibre Tfight XTC 305. Lower static weight, but more weight in the head to compensate. Therefore it plays more stable than its weight. I prefer the heft of the Gravity Pro, but these play very closely. Score: 85/100

HEAD Gravity MP – a more open pattern and even lower weight so easy to swing. Easy racquet to play with for intermediate players. Gives you good top-spin, comfort, and decent power. Does not have the stability or the precision of the Tour and the Pro, but still a fine racquet for advanced players with just a bit of customization. More spin-friendly than the Tour and the Pro and a good choice for a wide group of players. Score. 80/100
 
Was there any announcement or that is just what all the new racquets are? Any official reason they are switching?
@Badmrfrosty @n8dawg6
I asked the head.rep about this, he did not know
I the rectangular handle shape was an issue for me in the past,, but this square shape is equally as shoking
the gravity handles did not seem as square to me,, I didn't notise them as much
the new head.radical however is very notisable

@Frans Bleker apples to oranges imo, 2 diff sticks
 
i am somewhat amused that head is recycling their old tech (IG speed head shape) and re-branding it as a “massive sweet spot,” designed for the modern game bc sweet spot is higher in stringbed, etc. marketing FTW!
 
It would be a better competitor if it was 98 and not 100. Head now has 4! lines of 100 racquets (instinct, extreme, speed and gravity).
yes i'd agree with that. in reality the difference is probably subtle but I think gravity is a good candidate for 98 head size.

Yea, but the whole industry has always been like that the past decades, right? I think the marketing deps. have been focusing on communicating innovations that do not really exist, a graphite racket stays a graphite racket.
 
Looks like the Prince 100 Pro 18 20 is a direct competitor. This Pro seems to have a smidge more power but twist weight is higher in the Prince 15 to 14.5 ..... I guess the phantom pro 100 p even with a more open pattern is along this line too.
