Head Gravity

Great review! Thx! The pain in the pinky and ringfinger might be carpal tunnel syndrom! Have a doctor, handsurgeon, look at it! Wishing you a speedy recovery! Stay healthy!
Thanks! I do have both golfers and tennis elbow... fun stuff. The numbness comes when things get too inflamed in the joint and it puts pressure on the ulnar nerve. It basically feels like when you hit you funny bone accidentally when it’s bad. I’m getting better, but hoping I can play my way better. When you’re playing good though it’s hard to back off ;}. With Gpro I honestly believe I can do that. It just plows through the ball so nicely that I can put it on cruise control and let the racquet take care of the hitting and still get easy depth.

I let a couple teaching pros hit with the MP during live ball drills as well as a D3 player and a 4.0 player. They all liked it. THe d3 player is currently playing with a Radical MP and for this upcoming school year might bid on his player package of x5 racquets to be the Gravity MP. It was still strung up with SG but next week I'll bring it with a poly. Possibly Yellow Jacket at 48? or 45? hhhhmmm...

Decisions, decisions. Been more than 15 years since I had a Wilson or Head in my hands. Currently playing with the Volkl C10 Pro and a weighted Prince Tour 100 18x20 (12.5oz). These two racquets are opposite worlds but I could easily switch between them when needed. Which makes me believe I wouldn't have a problem playing with the Gravity Pro or the new Blade 18x20 for that matter. But I'm just not sure if these two new racquets could fill in the gaps if there are any. Would I be playing much better with the new racquets or is my game already optimized with what I have? Anybody had experience coming from C10/Prince Tour Pro and successfully switched to these new racquets? I will also check with our local stores if they have demos.

I have to post about this racquet. Anyone seriously looking for that blend of control, power, touch, and spin in a comfortable frame... the Gravity Pro is a must try. I've been a 4.5/5.0 player most of my life. At 48 I still play and hit with college level players. Although I still seem to have the strokes to hang with a lot of them the court movement these days isn't what it needs to be. I've always been an aggressive baseliner, controlling the point and hitting with power and spin is my game. Over the years I've played more doubles and developed a lot more touch, angles, etc. but I'm still perfectly happy ripping shots from both wings sending opponents side to side for better or worse until I hit a a winner or I miss.

Never had much in the way of TE issues, but it has popped up here and there and have always recovered quickly from it. The last few years I have some general soreness and new my time was limited unless I found something easier on my arm. I've always suffered somewhat from being a racketholic... always looking for a little more control or power or spin, etc. Recently my TE has gotten pretty bad with numbness in my ring and pinky finger which is bad. I've decided to forego poly strings and moved back to some multi-filaments... to my surprise it hasn't been a disaster. I was so hooked on the spin/grip and consistent strike/feel from poly strings that I thought no way a multi or syn gut would be a playable option for me again.

I've tried a lot of racquets over the years and usually stick with something for 1-2 years if I really like something. PS 6.0 95 was and still is to me one of the greatest racquets ever (for my game). Never got on with 85sq in version. I've gamed the Pure Drive, AeroPro+, Radical (Microgel, Graphene and XT), Hyper Pro Staff 6.0 (Europe version, why I sold them I'll never know), Dunlop Srixon CX 2.0, Dunlop 200g Muscle Weave and many others for extended periods over the years. I'm currently gaming the Dunlop CX200+ and experimenting with the Speed Pro 360, Yonex Vcore Pro 97 310 (tried 330, but too heavy). I like the CX200 tour 16x19, but it requires a lot of input and isn't so forgiving, but a great stick and easy on the arm, just a little short on power that I look for. CX200+ has good plow, good power/control, forgiving, but lacking on drop/touch shots (due to power). With a multifilament string, the CX200+ is pretty comfy and I keep gravitating back to it. Previously I was playing CX 2.0 weighted to 11.8 (8-9pts HL) which was great, but still bothering my arm a little even with natural gut/poly combo.

I have to say though that the Gravity Pro might be one of those classic racquets that we get nostalgic about for a long time to come. Got a demo this past weekend and it was strung with Wilson syn gut power 16ga. Normally I would hate that, but it actually played really well. I also normally don't gel with 18x20 patterns, but the spin on this GPro is very accessible to a surprising amount. Hit for 2.5 hours Sunday with crazy control and spin... really heavy balls that even the college players were remarking about. No live fire playing with serving and returns, but we were playing points off the ground, king of the hill drills, etc.. Was really impressed with the spin, easy depth and touch I had.

Tuesday I was excited to get out again. I played doubles and wondered about a honeymoon period or that I had a freak good day with it on Sunday. I barely finished the first set with it and was a little disappointed, crashing down to reality I thought. Couldn't get the same spin and control, power was lacking and things didn't go well so I switched to my CX200+ and played great. Returns were a problem (sluggish movmement), serve was okay but a bit erratic and I thought okay CX200+ is what I should stick with and was more manageable.

Didn't want to give up on the GPro completely so I restrung with Technifibre Multifeel 16ga at 51lbs. My TE has been getting better with the multis and I'm trying to back off a little when playing. Tonight it was more sore having played so much on Sunday and then playing on Tuesday. I know I should rest, ice, stretch, etc. but I love to play. Played doubles again tonight (Thursday) and was going to try the Vcore 97 again (strung with multi at 50lbs). Warm up with the Vcore I had pain right away. Still getting some vibration, racquet flutter, etc. even with the multi and it was bothering me. So I pulled the GPro after just a few minutes into the warmup and instant relief. The plow and comfort of this GPro frame is awesome, virtually no discomfort or pain. I also noticed with the multi feel string instead of the syn gut I had better pop, control/spin was back, feel was excellent. I proceeded to play great... even better than the first outing. Serves had very nice pop on flat and great spin on second serves to the point where it didn't matter if I hit a first or second serve... my opponents struggled to even get the return back in the court. Groundstrokes and volleys were awesome, topspin lobs, you name it I was coming up with shots and hitting them, it was really fun. I still missed some shots, especially on returns, but not so bad that I felt that I couldn't get better with this frame.

The demo racquet I have is 10.9oz unstrung. Strung it comes in at 11.7/11.8 and 7-8pts HL. I went from really liking, to doubting, to really considering switching over the last 6-7 hours of on court playing time I've had. It's definitely between this and the CX200+. For arm comfort alone I would pick the GPro hands down. With a fairly tender elbow I was able to play full out without hesitation, comfortably. And when we finished my arm felt good,

I would like to try the Tour, but I would end up weighting it up close to the GPro spec anyway. I'm trying to remain calm, I'm in the afterglow of a great night of playing great tennis. Maybe its' just coincidence and I'm playing well regardless of what I have in my hands. But even if I ultimately decide it's a little too unwieldy and go with the lighter CX200+... this is still a great racquet, of that I'm sure. The combo of things it does well is really impressive... and all while being super arm friendly. I forgot to mention that the large sweet spot on the GPro is such a great and unique thing in a player spec racquet. It's big part of what makes this racquet so fun. Normally players spec racquets can really penalize you outside the sweet spot. Miss the sweet spot and there is a severe lack of pace, depth, spin, etc... all of which lead to the dreaded sitter in the short court that your opponent can rip for a winner. It's hard to miss the sweet spot on this thing so you get the control of a player racquet, but forgiveness of a tweener... it's really nice. Instead of a week, short sitter you still get good depth and spin, etc. on much higher percentage of shots. Sweetspot is huge! Awesome offering from Head, super kudos on this one.
Would you string Multifeel at 51Lbs again, or would you adjust the tension next time?
 
I am pretty happy with the tension of the multifeel at 51lbs. If anything I might consider a higher tension by 1-2lbs if I felt like it got too soft too fast. Certainly feels perfect right now for my tastes.

Review/anyone tried the S / MP lite? A bit curious on those.


Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk
I pulled a trigger on MP Lite, because wanted more arm friendly and control oriented racquet. Changed heavier grip, put overgrip, dampener, overall strung weight 11oz about 5hl balance. Multi strings (i always played with poly strings, because couldnt control multi).
My impressions:
At first hits i couldnt believe how much less power racquet had compared to all racquets i used before even with multi strings.
The control is amazing, power is good if your footwork good and your swing long, but if you late, balls would land short. But thats what i wanted. My serve has best technique of all my shot and i served good with Gravity MP Lite, other shots sometimes struggled if im late on the shot. Volleys/touch shots were easy with Gravity.
Comfort is amazing. Its first time in about a year that i didnt feel anything on my arm after tennis match. I buy this racquet with intension to string it with multi strings because of arm issues and comfort/control/power is very good with that combo.
It lacked stability a little bit vs heavy serves, i struggled return first serves, but a guy i played with have very good first serve. But im not sure, maybe its because i missed sweet spot, need more play time to figure out if i need lead tape on 3/9.
Overall i liked the racquet. I like to swing hard so i need more control from the racquet. But if you are looking for free power, probably wilson clash or other racquet is better option. Of course it could be honeymoon period, but the comfort for sure is amazing and ill be able to play more than once a week with this racquet.

Cool! Thanks for the input. Much appreciated!

I play my Volkl super g 10-295 with a overgrip (317 string w of. 312 sw with 17 g poly, 4 pts HL. and my Vsense 10-325 isnt as plush as the SuperG. You can’t swing a heavy racquet either with your arm problems? I’ve got some strange muscle issues on front of my forearm that fortunately is going away albeit slow. 3 grams at 12 will put it at same sw as my SG. So I am in twilight zone between mp and mp lite. Or the S. I think I need to play test really. Did you try the S?

In a perfect world I’d have the time to play 7 days a week with a 350 gram 345sw racquet but reality says otherwise. Maybe I’ll do some exercise and use the mp. Time will tell as I’m not buying anything before I know the muscle issues goes away.

S head size 104 is too big for me. I can play with heavier racquet for every shot except serve. I think racquet weight depends on your fitness level/technique and how you hit the ball. If i would hit flat i can play even more heavier racquet, but i like to put a spin on the ball and serve faster which needs RHS, so 11 oz is maximum weight i can handle. Head Gravity swings pretty fast for me and i may put some weight on 3/9 if i feel it lacks stability but first i need to play more with Gravity MP Lite too figure out if i need lead it.

Before customization anyone finding some difficulty with the heft of the pro ion serve?

I’ve used prince graphite 100s last few years with weight added at 10 and 2 and a swing weight that has to be pretty darn close to these but find with even similar balance these are more demanding to serve with.

No issues for me! I actually served really well today during my practice matches! Easy power while maintaining decent control. My GPro has a 344 SW (12 oz static weight) stock.

I didn’t have any issues as well. If anything, my serves were more powerful, at the cost of less accuracy (mainly on slice serves, I’m still trying to figure it out)

12 Oz is the maximum for me at this moment fitness wise. And I also am more sensitive with the serve than ground strokes. And it depends. If I were to continue the flatter hitting I suppose a 12.5 oz racquet would be preferable but I have no problems doing that with my current SG10 at 11 oz. thanks for the heads up about the S model. My guess is that I’ll end up with mp but it’s good to know that the lite is an option.

posting in both gravity threads

I've been off the courts a good amount of time due to health this year. Got back on late June. I used to string up my poly set ups 45-48# but I'm not liking how it feels in the Gravity MP. It could be the string as I recall not caring for it much in my other MP racquets but it really shines in the bumblebee or POG-OS. I tried 48# with Yellow Jacket/Concept and my wrist was hurting. I then tried 43# and don't know if it's residual pain but sometimes the wrist aches. Lets continue...

Jumped on the Gravity bandwagon with a Gravity Tour.
Unstrung weight 303 grams. Close to spec.

Strung with Xperience 1.18mm + damper + 2 over grips.
Weight: 333.5 grams
BP: 32.5cm 5 points HL
Playable but felt the SW was too high for me & this is with 2 overgrips as they only sell L2 grips in my country.

Strung with Xpereicne 1.18mm + damper + leather grip + 2 over grips.
Weight: 342.6 grams
BP: 32cm 7 points HL
Much prefer this setup. Higher static weight but lower SW.
Serves & shbh were great. Racquet had a really nice plush yet solid connected feel.
Had trouble dialing in my forehand with shots landing just wide. Suspect the overly powerful Xperience poly for this.
Will try upping the tension or using a different setup later.

Came from a heavily modded Blade 104 (2013 & 2015) which I still like but the GT is more solid hitting with superior feel.
Experimented with Prince Phantom Pro XR (Asia only model). Comfortably flexy but too muted for my liking.
Felt like I was hitting with the pillow - comfortable but close to zero connection to the ball.

I’ve had a lot of success serving with the pro on first and second serves. Normally I prefer something a little more HL so I can whip the tip through. It took me about an hour or so to figure it out. I just had to be more patient and trust that the acceleration would happen. I tend to help too much (muscle the swing) which causes issues. I’ve been crushing my first and hitting good slice and kick serves on the second. Once I focused on slowing down to let the racquet get to what I call ‘the tipping point’ everything got a lot better. I wasn’t getting ahead of the racquet and the racquet just destroys the ball almost on its own if you let it. Played doubles last night and was almost untouchable. My opponents barely got a single second serve back in the first set because their racquets were twisting in their hands causing all kinds of misdirected shots.

Exactly my feeling. I have to measure my strung balance tonight but I am guessing 3HL... it's borderline to little too head heavy for me. I will put some putty in the handle... it would probably be ideal if I took it up to 5-6HL... was little sluggish and I was late. Maybe it's just a matter of getting used to it but it is little bit more tiring. I am 100% convinced i would not be able to wield Pro.... glad went with Tour.. other than that no issues with this frame. Fantastic offering. Launch angle is surprisingly high for 18x20. Feel is awesome. Very good plow and stability. Volleys were super solid. Power is very much adequate as well. Will write more as I login more time.. only one hour of hitting today.

This weighted-buttcap has been the default since the Graphene Touch series - those 7 grams are exactly they weight of the Head Zepp tennis sensor, so that when you install it, there is no change in balance or racquet weight

I ordered a test Gravity from TW Europe. I tried it, and it's the worst racket I ever tried. Very very poor maniability, uncomprehensive sweetspot. I could not hit one single good forehand or backhand with it. Balance too much in head for me.
By the way, we compared it to the demo model of my friend, and it was completely different. And a store compared 2 models, big weight (10gr)and balance difference between both. 2 Gravity can be more different than a Gravity compared to another model from another brand...

I must admit it was little sluggish (felt too head heavy as well).. but that could be b/c i am not used to that much of a head heavy setup.. I added some weight to handle... let's see how it hits... should be able to test it out over the weekend... Other than feeling a little bit sluggish (i was a tad late on strokes) i thought it was very solid.. no complaints, granted it was just one hour of hitting. i was impressed with plow, not super impressed with control... launch angle was pleasantly surprisingly high for 18x20.

For those using the Gravity Pro, which is your favorite string to use? After several sessions with GPro strung with 4G @ 48 lbs, the feel is getting stiffer and lower powered which I don’t really like.

So far, I’ve tried Hawk Touch (great for 1-2h; stiff as hell after), YPTP 1.25 (great muted feel, easy on the arm, good tension maintenance), Silverstring 1.25 (even more muted, great control, decent power for a poly), Pro Line Evolution (most comfortable of all, but somewhat lacking in directional control).
Of those, I prefer YPTP overall, Silverstring for control, PLE for comfort and Hawk Touch for my stringer’s wallet (not for mine, though).
All strung 50-52 lbs (flexible racquet, etc etc etc).

Next on the line I have Alu Power (bad for my wallet as well), Hyper G, Klip Legend + YPTP, Ice Code, Tour Bite Soft and Silverstring 1.20

The 4G i found is almost exactly how you described the Hawk Touch except it lasted for 8 hours before it went to the “stiff as hell” phase. The YPTP 1.25, as you described, might be the one I’m the most interested, as both tension maintenance and comfort are important to me. Thanks for your detailed response!

Logged in little bit more time with the Tour.... after 10gr in the handle... and modifying it to 335gr and 7pth HL i like it much better. 4pt HL was too little for me.

I am not sure about the "massive sweet spot" but when you find it, it pummels the ball. You kind of get what you put in. Control is good. I actually am thinking putting a even more control oriented poly.. That should make it perfect. This racquet have no issues with power. Touch is good. One thing not to take for granted is comfort. It's really fantastic. Strengths of this racquet is plow, stability. I found it really good for volleys and over-heards and serves. Have to hit more.. still 2 hours of total hitting is very little time. Will update.

I needed to be light enough so I can mode to 7pts HL w/out going over 12oz. Also I thought 22mm would be easier power than 20mm beam although lower SW in Tour than Pro. I may take the weight off the handle as I get more used to it. Still playing around with it.

I can see this racquet working with many polys!, since it has good power on its own (being a thin 18/20), but I prefer the 18/20s with a bit more power help, both from the string (power polys), and lower tensions..

For those using the Gravity Pro, which is your favorite string to use? After several sessions with GPro strung with 4G @ 48 lbs, the feel is getting stiffer and lower powered which I don’t really like.
on most 18/20s i need the extra help, it is a tight pattern racket after all
i would try a medium to higher power poly instead, over the lux.4g u mention,,, here are some I would try instead (I tried all of these polys,, but sooo many more out there ),,
h.sonic.pro, h.lynx, lux.alu.power, lux.savage, lux.element

if you still need more comfort and power
i would consider
lux.smart
babo.origin

Hope you guys can give me some advice:

I used the have the Graphene Youtek Radial Pro
Great stick but gave me arm issues so i decided to change. Great on the groundstrokes, spin friendly and a massive weapon for serve/volley.

Then i had the Yonex ezone DR98; Great sticks but they are getting a little bit old and i wanted to try something new. Found them very arm friendly and spin friendly. Great on serve/volley. Quite low powered though especially when i compare it you the Radical Pro I had before.

Few weeks ago i tested the Wilson Clash Tour. First sessions looked great so I ordered one. Little bit a guess but that was the DR98 too when i tested it. But im feeling its too overpowered and not very accurate on serve/volley. Especially the serve is very difficult to gain kick...
I have a single handed backhand with quite some spin. Its great when I hit hard but on slice it is not very accurate.

So how would the Gravity 360 Pro/MP compare to the previous sticks? Especially the Clash and the DR98?
