New Head Racquet

#27
So yet another line of racquets to add to Heads mind boggling number of racquets. Guess the MXG line is dead in the water after just 1 cycle. Or are they dropping another line to add the Gravity. Is the Prestige going?

Wilson's attempt at reintroducing a pro-stock type frame was an unmitigated disaster.

I know we criticize modern Head racquets, but I have liked a few of the recent iterations (even one of the non-xt Graphene radicals - heresy!)

If Head can do this right, it'll be a must-demo for me, even if only out of curiosity. Not sure anything would get me to switch from my stash of pure controls, though.

The Ultra Tour 97 is not a disaster. An unmitigated disaster has been the MxG line

Whoah there buddy. The Ultra Tour is a great racquet. If you don't like it, that's merely your opinion. How does that make its release a disaster?

I never played the MxG. Was it way too overpowered?
MXG3 is a tweener with 16/18 and therefore control might be critical for really good players although the feel is nice. MXG1 with 16/19 is a very good, flexible frame with a good power control mix.
Unfortunately the magnesium yoke seemed to cause some "fear of contact" on the market. If Rafa had switched, it would have been different story.

There are some good players using MXG in action. Danish doubles player and wimbledon-winner Frederik Nielsen use the MXG frame. Goran Ivanisevic use it when he play matches. Swedish former Top 10 player Thomas Enqvist use it nowdays in the German league in competition matches so it´s a good frame! I would presume if they just painted the throat black or not made it hollow these frames would have been a different saga

Only if it has C.A.P. System, twaron, 18x20, 95 head size, 20mm beam width, 59ra unstrung, and is the PT57A2
This is not directed at @vsbabolat, but I find it funny how Head Fanboys look at the CAP system as the Holy Grail that is the cherry on top of a "pro level frame." If Head threw CAP bumpers on the Speed Graphene 360, and called it something else they could create a pre-order extravaganza!
