Head Gravity

First impressions after first play with gravity tour... 2 weeks ago I bought Yonex DR 100, so a lot of my impressions are in comparison to this racquet...Well, actually they complete eachother: while DR 100 gives you easy power but lacks feel, gravity tour gives no free power but has a lot of feel... I used GT in a competition thinking it will motivate me, but actually it's not the kind of racquet you can just hold in your hands and play, you need to really study it... Although, it has a great feeling, no harsh vibrations at all, even with a co-poly Lynx (I think that is the factory string)... My strokes are quite compact since I never really learned how to play tennis, but when I took really big swings I felt it can be even more powerful and much accurate than DR... What was strange is that I found it much more harder to volley than with DR - you gave to be in perfect position.. It reminds me of my old Prestige Tour 660, only with much better manuervity (330g vs 360g)... 2 handed backhand is almost impossible, while backhand slices cuts like a knife... I was surprised by the deep and low slice you can achieve with little effort, and it was easy for me to generate power on serve, much more than DR... I framed a lot, but when I returned I felt a good control, the ball dewelld well... The very weak point was at topspin, comparing to the ease of DR... When I switched between the racquets and played few points with DR (SWTICHING - always a bad mistake!) I suddenly I felt was in control of the ralley as my opponent got pushed to the fence by the high bouncing balls... Drop shots has great potential though I didn't have enough confidence to try... If I have to give marks... then:
Power - 6
Control - 9
Feel - 10
Volley - 7
Serve - 8
Slice - 9
Topspin - 6
Flat - 9
Comfort - 10
Returns - 8
I have a 2 hander and I thought it was great for my stroke. Definitely agree about it lacking top spin, I kinda wish there was a 16x19 version if it, but maybe the upcoming Prestige Pro might fill that gap

I feel like the bite I get on my topspin groundstrokes exceeds what I see from a lot of other frames with the GPro. It’s one of the things I like about the frame in the fact I can rip flatter or roll one with great spin and bite really from just about anywhere. I did add a finest calfskin grip and a slight amount of tail weight to the frame but it’s been money since and it played well in stock form in my opinion

Probably depends on where you're coming from. Compared to my C10 Pro the GPro has loads of it. And I'm even using SynGut.

Blade much more a traditional racq, ppl not want too much innovation, more want incremental chg. Conservative design.

Blade been a h/h trad racq for a long time now. I recall the second(?) gold/black Blade going deeply head heavy, real sledgehammer - if u cld stay swinging it! Versions have hovered round this formula ever since. Praps the 2015 being the most all round workable.

Anyway for Blade-ers think the Grav shape too modern, and its spiral-fibre feel too tech.

But reckon yr right too, the Grav blends modern/trad elements.

One real upside to the Grav which have enjoyed so far is insane action on serve: superfast scythe.

Did you demo new blade? If so where place it next to Grav?

And what does everyone think wIth this racq line where have Head made, er, headway?

Whoa pretty radical assess. 10/10 in touch and easy use? Real turnaround given how friggin awful prev Graphene is/was. Think consensus was thatHead had pretty much mucked up the feel of their racquets, say, ah, well for the LAST DECADE, coff coff, LOST DECADE. Am not using the tour, am on the MP. Feel is good. Better, more comfortable, than Graphene XT Rad, better than a Speed 360 MP. They've certainly "fixed" some of the hollow, tinny, elbow-terminator problems.

Have to add for us older players another not-so-sexy bonus is... injury prevention. The prev high RA racqs were just the proverbial PITA... no, PITE!

Early reports of new Head Prestiges say good feel...

I preferred the Gravity Pro over the Blade, but felt it was a bit too heavy for 3 sets.

comparing the blade and gravity tour 18x20s

blade had a lower launch angle, less spin, less power, slightly worse comfort but still good, but much better control

i felt the pros of the control did not overcome the cons, for my game style, but both are great racquets

Actually I think the difficulty was due to my technique, I trained yesterday with a pro trainer and my 2hb was great with this racquet, once we fixed something in my technique.

Sometimes its hard ti differ feel from control but in this case gravity tour has amazing feel but control is mediocre. Not bad tho. Same time dr has good control but bad feel.

I think that my Gravity Pro matches my DR for control, beats it for feel, and punishes me if I get lazy with my technique.

I’m finding that I’m playing better with my other rackets after playing with my Gravity Pro because it forces me to focus more on my technique. But when I am executing strokes correctly, the Gravity Pro is the racket I want in my hand.

The Tour is more inline with the DR.
Got both, plus the Pro.

however it is true that it did require transition time from PA.

Upper hoop area really coming to the fore. Special in serving. Something else. Real pwr boost up top. Feels like its own territory. Extra giddyup or something in the top third of the racq. Getting cheap points off serve.
 
Loving my Gravity Tour so far. Perfect blend of feel, control and power for me. Really crazy how it packs a relatively hefty SW for it`s static weight. Measured mine on an RDC strung with OG, sitting at 324g and 326SW.

Downsides I've experienced:
1. Lack of maneuverability. Finding it hard to hit very low balls and whip them over the net
2. Lost power on serve, feels a bit sluggish

I was wondering if adding a leather grip or lead tape to the handle would improve maneuverability? Theoretically it would alter the balance, but all that mass on the hoop would still be there.. I know that SW remains unaltered thus it's the same effort to swing the stick. So I'd be left with a heavier racquet (not sure if that's good), same SW but lower balance. How does that change things?

I find the Gravity Tour to be very maneuverable.
Since I decided to take it, the amount of net attacking increased a lot, simply naturally as the stick volleys by itself. All I need to do is to not be an obstacle between the stick and the ball.

Service.
I also noticed, or better say thought that there is a decrease of speed on my service, as opposed to PA.
But when I asked the guys I train with, both of them told me that it's not easier to deal with my service, as both, the precision and consistency increased.

Adding weight to the handle.
Theoretically it should make it more HL -> should increase the maneuverability.
In this respect it shouldn't make a difference whether you add leather grip or lead tape on the handle, or weight inside the grip.
Try it and see if it works for you.
When I tried to add weight to MP, I think I reached same static weight like with Tour, but still couldn't reach the Tour consistency, not even remotely. So theory is one thing, reality is another one.
 
The maneuverability thing is something that confuses me.. Theoretically SW is how heavy it feeld to swing the racquet.. so if that is unchanged, it's not becoming any easier to swing (or maneuver) it... it's only going to be more maneuverable relative to the total mass, since you increase mass without increasing SW.

So my conclusion is that doing this won't make moving the racquet around any easier.. What am I missing?

theoretically yes.
Frames that are more HL are supposed to be more maneuverable than the more HH ones.

another theoretical thought, or at least how I can explain it to myself.
PA has a lower static weight, and perhaps similar or lower SW.
But definitively thicker beam, and a very different mold, that supposedly is "aerodynamic", yet from my experience, it is a tad more difficult to volley with it.
What if the slightly heavier GTour faces less friction when you move it through the air? How does that influence the maneuverability?
 
But if it experiences more friction, it would be harder to swing, so it would be reflected on a higher SW. It's like measuring SW with that retail cardboard on the racquet... much more friction and thus higher SW.

Just trying to figure out how something can become more maneuverable if you don't decrease SW.

I think that it might be related to torque rather than SW itself - the weight is the same, but you have gravity (not Gravity) working with you rather than agaisnt you (same weight/swingweight, different force/acceleration needed = less effort)

no, not everything boils down to SW.

GTour has a constant beam width = 22mm.
PA has a variable beam width between 23/26mm.

Imagine 2 cars.
With same wheels, same motor, same gearbox, and same every other detail, except that the bodies are different, and the weight is almost same.
The one that faces less friction has the potential to accelerate faster, or to reach a higher maximum speed. So that must be the winner car, isn't it?
On a flat & straight road yes.
But when the curves begin, things might change due to other variables.

Same is with tennis frames.
It unfortunately doesn't boil entirely to SW and static weight.

I got the Gravity Pro and changed to a Babolat leather grip, added an overgrip and strung with Mayami Tour Hex. Now it weighs 350g(12.3oz).

Compared to my Gravity 360 Speed Pro, it is quite a bit heavier. However, due to being more headlight, swinging the Gravity Pro doesn't feel too heavy, although I seem to hit the ball with the throat of the racquet a lot when returning serves.

Still need more time to adapt to it.

Might consider bringing the speed pro up to that weight as well with the same balance.

Same with me. I tried a few but but still preferred the factory string - lynx 17 so put some of that back in - happy days (y)
lynx edge was good too but I hate the blue color. The new lynx tour prototype not bad but original lynx feels the best. Rpm blast also good in this frame. Signum xperience was nice as well and like it crossed with Ashaway mono gut Zx. Didn’t like any of the hawk strings.

Ok, so now I’ve had the chance to play several sessions with the Pro, and even some series matches with the Tour.

I loved the Tour from the first hit, literally. I borrowed a Tour from a playing partner, and after hitting the ball three times, I knew the search for a new racket had come to a conclusion.

Since I couldn’t demo the Pro, and I had to wait to get a second Tour, I decided on getting a Pro first, just to see compare the two.

And I love the Pro as well. The thin beam feels perfect, and the sensation on impact is like butter. To me, it feels way better than the V7 Blade. The Duel G line is pretty close, but not as sweet and lacked the plow. Volleys are RF97A-rock-solid and return as well.

But the euro guys are spot on the TWE review; whilst the Pro is sweet, the Tour wins matches. It’s just easier to use. Going between the two, is pretty easy, but I do notice the diff in feel. The Tour feels like you added a just a touch of Pure Aero/Drive crispness to the the Pro. The positive to this is that the PA/PA sprinkle also comes with a more pop and manouverability.

I serve quite a bit better with the tour, and have an easier time controlling spin and height on groundstrokes as well (the Pro plays flatter). If I was a better player, I’d rock the Pro.

I demoed both and ended up settling on the Tour. Demoed the pro first and had the same exact experience as you - loved the feel by the third ball, and stopped my racquet search. However, it was a little too much for me to swing, I measured it on the RDC and it read 341 SW. Picked up a Tour demo and played them side by side. You're spot on about the little extra crispness, but I thought it was VERY subtle and retained great part of the pro's feel. It is still very much a flexible racquet, but it gives you a bit more free power and it's a little easier to add spin.

I now have a pair of Tours, one sits at 325 SW and the other 330 SW. Still a very hefty racquet despite the low static weight, and still packs quite a punch and allows you to smoosh the ball.

So Pro as Tour are great rackets. Pro is for advanced player who plays several times in week. Tour is easier to play and in my opinion is good so for advance players as for higher intermediate ones. Tour surprised me with its stability, the same as Tecnifibre TF40 305, great stability for 305 gr racket. Feeling is also surprisingly good regarding previous Head Graphene rackets.

I am still playing with Tecnifibre, but seriously considering to switch to Tour. I can play from the baseline and at net the same with Tec and Tour, but serving is quite better with Tour. There is something magic in Gravity head shape that serving is so easy and effective.
 
I've been playing with that racket for almost half a year now. I have not tried the Tour version, but I can say for the Pro version that it is easy to play. The key is that the hand must be completely relaxed when performing each stroke, the rest is done by the racket alone. The sweet spot is huge, so even with heavy balls in defense, it does a great job. I also tried Blade v7 16x19 and to me honestly this racquet is better in all segments of the game. With a lot more power and stability than Blade, the ball is much stronger with Gravity Pro than Blade . Even after three hours of play I have no pain, simply a racket causes addiction. Flat service is very strong. Kick service is great with shaped poly (S7T). I also like to play with Pure Aero when I'm not really in the mood for a game and I switch slightly from one racquet to another. In fact, these are also my two favorite rackets that I have tried in the last two years. The specifications are the exact opposite, but nonetheless it is easy to play with both and switch from one racket to another.

Undoubtedly Pro is a great product, but the text highlighted above is the reason Tour is more user friendly. You really need to be a 5+ player and in good shape to take advantage of the Pro. The same is valid for RF97. For us mortals who no longer train or play every day, Tour is Top.

That I have not yet switched to Gravity Tour full time is only because the control is really crazy and the feeling is top notch with Tecnifibre TF40 305.

Tried Yonex PTP in my Gravity Pro for the first time tonight (A string I used a lot in a DR98). It suited the racket really well and exposed the softness and comfort of the frame. Good power and good spin. My only grip was the feedback from the string-bed was a little lost. But that is a trade off for the extra comfort. Strung at 52/50, going to keep it in there while its cold.

I’vr been through quite a lot of rackets over the last few years, and besides the Gravitys, the TF40 305 was the only other racket that really impressed me. It’s been compared to the Blade V7 as well, but imo the new Blade feels much more rubber-muted with a small sweet zone. The reason I didn’t go all in for the TF40 305, is the tight pattern and the smaller headsize. If I played a flatter game, I would prob go for this or the Gravity Pro. The TF40 feels prostock to me: plush and super solid at the same time, whilst retaining great feel.

Well written and I agree, but I would add that despite the 18x20, both Gravity Pro and Tour and TF40 spin is not a difficult task, but of course it is not as easy as with open patterns rackets. But if the technique is right, spin is not a problem, but there is no free lunch here, finally these are players and not game improving rackets.
 
Got a Head / Zepp sensor at a local shop on impulse and demoed a couple of Head racquets — Graph Touch Prestige Mid and Grav Pro. Had a short, easy hit last night. Tail weighted the Mid and it played surprisingly nice. The Gravity Pro was a bit weird... It was strung with Hawk at 48 lbs. Felt that adding 10+ grams of putty in the handle made it swing easier for me, but with or without the putty, the string bed and the sound felt like it was flopping around a bit. Anyone have the same experience? Is the tension too low?

with minimal mods, that touch mid is a really great frame, especially when you treat it like a modern spin frame.

You mean to put poly in it and brush up?.. my strokes are more linear, I’d say, but I’ll give it another shot to see how it fares relative to Gravity.

something like that. Just my opinion as a lifetime Babolat guy, the touch mid’s hl balance and open pattern make it very spin friendly for someone used to swinging an aero, and the static weight brings advantages with feel and plow that tweeners don’t bring. Flat shots work well, but if you can get the timing down and the head size isn’t an issue, I find it to be a solid modern stick...or a good all a rounder.

A good reason I see it occasionally at the junior level (and a few on tour use the mold), but at the same time prestige traditionalists hate it.

sorry, don’t mean to hijack the thread.
