7 Best Head Tennis Racquets

There are a lot of tennis brands out there today, and it seems like Head always is among the top manufactures in the tennis world. The tennis racquet scene is extremely competitive, but with Head’s ability to sign top ranked players together with quality racquets, it makes them stand out from the rest.

With players like Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev as the main players endorsed by Head, makes them one of the most respected brands in the tennis industry.

Head constantly releases quality racquets, and there are hundreds of different ones to choose from. We made this list to make your picking process a little bit easier. Below are the 7 best Head tennis racquets right now.


1. Head Graphene 360 Radical MP

  • Head Size: 98 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11 oz / 312g
  • Balance: 6pts HL
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Flex: 68
  • Swingweight: 324

The first racquet to make the list is the Head Graphene 360 Radical MP, endorsed by players like Sloane Stephens and Taylor Fritz. The Radical MP is not only used at the professional level, it’s also one of the most popular racquets at the recreational level. I can see why, the racquet offers great control and maneuverability, without sacrificing any spin or power potential.

This racquet is more control-oriented than other Head models, but it still offers a good amount of depth because of the launch angle which is a bit higher off the stringed.

Despite the great maneuverability, It’s very easy to generate spin with the Radical MP. You may think that with a control-oriented racquet that allows for a lot spin, shouldn’t have an easy time generating power. However, that is certainly not the case with the Radical MP.

An all-solid racquet that is perfect for beginners as well as more advanced players. It’s hard to find a racquet that is more well balanced than the Radical MP. It would be a shame to not have this racquet on the list. You can read our full review in this post.

Pros

  • Control
  • Manuverability
  • Spin

Cons

  • Lacks stability

2. Head Graphene 360 Speed Pro

  • Head Size: 100 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11.5 oz / 326g
  • Balance: 6pts HL
  • String Pattern: 18×20
  • Flex: 62
  • Swingweight: 318

Second racquet to hit the list is one of the most hyped Head racquets on the market. The hype is pretty understandable considering that the world No.1 Novak Djokovic endorses this racquet.

This racquet is much faster and explosive compared to a traditional player’s racquet and the 320 Swingweight makes it well suited to scrambling on defense and cranking winners on the run.

It’s a great control racquet and one of the most arm-friendly racquet in the Head series. In addition, the Speed Pro delivers decent spin thanks to the widened string spacing and the easy generated acceleration.

It was hard to find any weaknesses with the Speed Pro. The racquet does well both from the back and front of the court. It’s very stable and overall decent on volleys and there is a good amount of spin potential despite the tight string patterns, that usually doesn’t allow for a lot of spin.

Considering the small sweet spot, it’s definitely not the most beginner friendly racquet. But, for intermediate and advanced players, the Speed Pro is a very rewarding racquet. A perfect racquet for those who are serious about their tennis game. You can read our full review in this post.

Pros

  • Manuverability
  • Control
  • Endorsed by Novak Djokovic

Cons

  • Not beginner friendly

3. Head Graphene Touch Radical MP

  • Head Size: 98 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11 oz / 312g
  • Balance: 4pts HL
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Flex: 65
  • Swingweight: 323

The newest iteration of the Radical line, the Graphene Touch Radical MP is not endorsed by any player on the ATP Tour. However, it’s a pretty popular racquet at the recreational level.

The stability on this racquet is extremely good considering its weight at only 11 oz. The racquet offers good spin potential on groundstrokes and serves and considering that the racquet is pretty lightweight (11oz), you can still generate a lot of power with the Touch Radical MP.

There are many players that feel disconnected from their shots with the Touch Radical MP. But, that is going to disappear once you get more comfortable with the racquet. Apart from that, it’s a very versatiltile racquet that is good for modifications if you are into that.

Apart from the No.7 on this list, this racquet is the most beginner friendly option. If you are looking for a blend of power, spin and stability, that also is very arm-friendly, then this racquet is for you.

I would strongly recommend this racquet to beginner – intermediate players. When you touch the advanced players category, there are some better options out there.

Pros

  • Manuverability
  • Power
  • Spin

Cons

  • Muted response
  • Not endorsed by any ATP players

4. Head Graphene Touch Prestige MP

  • Head Size: 95 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11.9 oz / 337g
  • Balance: 6pts HL
  • String Pattern: 18×20
  • Flex: 65
  • Swingweight: 321

The Head Graphene Touch Prestige MP is not among the more popular racquets in the Head line. However, it’s a great overall racquet that screams control. It’s easy to generate power and it delivers precision and rewards all-court play.

The racquet oozes control and provides a low-powered response. The combination of low power and control helps to hit your target while serving and returning serves. Overall, exceptional control and a plush respond for players that are comfortable creating power on their own.

It may be a cliche, but you really feel connected with the ball when playing with the Touch Prestige MP. The good feeling when the ball connects to the string bed helps you to play more freely and it will make you more confident on the tennis court.

It takes some time to get used to, but once you get comfortable with the racquet, it becomes a very rewarding racquet. However, it’s not the most user-friendly racquet and I wouldn’t recommend it to beginner or even intermediate players. But, for advanced players that are comfortable with doing all the work themselves, the Touch Prestige MP is one of the most rewarding racquets on the market.

Pros

  • Feel
  • Control

Cons

  • Only for advanced players

5. Head Graphene 360 Extreme MP

  • Head Size: 100 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11.2 / 318g
  • Balance: 3pts HL
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Flex: 63
  • Swingweight: 328

5th on the list, the Head Graphene 360 Extreme MP. It’s up to personal preferences if you like the design or not, but I think this racquet have one of the most beautiful cosmetics on the market.

Endorsed by players like Matteo Berrettini and Richard Gasquet, it’s definitely a racquet that have established itself on the professional tour. The racquet is also starting to increase in popularity at the recreation level.

The new technology have made the Extreme MP one of the most spin-friendly racquets on the market. The high launch angle makes hitting with depth easy, and considering it’s pretty heavy at 11.2 oz, you will be impressed about how stable this racquet is at the net. The ability to drive through serves with a lot of speed and spin makes this racquet a great option for all playing styles.

Even though the racquet is made for all playing styles, not everyone can handle the Extreme MP. It requires a lot of skill and I wouldn’t recommend this racquet to anyone below the advanced players category. For those players, the Extreme MP is one of the best on the market. You can read our full review in this post.

Pros

  • Spin and Power
  • Endorsed by Matteo Berrettini & Gasquet
  • Affordable

Cons

  • Not beginner friendly

6. Head Graphene 360 Instinct MP

  • Head Size: 100 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 11.2 oz / 318g
  • Balance: 4pts HL
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Flex: 65
  • Swingweight: 320

The Head Graphene 360 is a racquet like the Instinct MP, who is cosmetically one of the most beautiful racquets on the market. Some people may disagree, but I love Head’s color options. It makes them stand out from the competitors.

Maria Sharapova is one of many ATP/WTA players that endorses the Instinct MP, and apart from that, it’s one of the most popular racquets at the recreational level. I can see why, despite the cosmetics, the racquet is very spin-friendly and allows for a lot of power, without sacrificing control. In addition, it’s a very arm-friendly racquet.

The Head Graphene 360 Instinct MP is a modern player’s racquet that offers easy access to power and spin in a maneuverable package. After Head added its Graphene 360 material to the shaft and several locations throughout the hoop, the racquets have become more powerful and with better response.

This racquet is more beginner friendly than the Extreme MP, but this racquet is still more targeted towards intermediate and advanced players. It could work for beginners as well, but there are other racquets that are more beneficial to them. However, if you are an intermediate/advanced player, or are striving to be one, you won’t be disappointed with the Instinct MP.

Pros

  • Manuverability
  • Spin
  • Cheaper than other Head models

Cons

  • Only for experienced players

7. Head Graphene 360 Radical S

  • Head Size: 102 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (strung): 10.4 oz / 295g
  • Balance: 5pts HL
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Flex: 61
  • Swingweight: 307

The last racquet to make our list is one of the lightest racquets on the market, the Head Graphene 360 Radical S. It may be one of the lightest racquets that Head have ever produced, but the Radical S sure packs a punch. At only 10.4 ounces you would expect the racquet to have a hard time generating power, but that is certainly not the case with the Radical S.

One of the most impressing racquets in the tennis market right now. Despite the weight, you can from both the baseline and at the net generate power and spin very easily, and the maneuverability on this racquet is hard to compete with.

A perfect racquet at the net that you will love during quick exchanges. However, at only 10.4 ounces the Radical S can’t be flawless. The low strung weight have some limitations for more aggressive players and if that’s your play style, I would suggest going for something else.

 If I would have to recommend a racquet for beginner players, then the Radical MP would be my number 1 choice. This racquet will do the job for you as an intermediate player as well, but for the more advanced players, there are other racquets that are better suited for you.

As long as you aren’t an aggressive player, this racquet is one of better options out there for beginners. You can read our full review in this post.

Pros

  • Manuverability
  • Lightweight
  • Arm-friendly

Cons

  • Not for aggressive players
  • Only for beginners/intermediate players
