With the Head Graphene Touch Extreme S, Head gives beginner and intermediate players an impressive blend of power, precision and spin. At under 300 grams, this racket swings faster than the Extreme MP, making it easier for less advanced players to generate power and spin. This racket is made with Graphene Touch, the most comfortable and dampened version of Head's polarized weight system. Other updates include wider string spacing, which makes this racket decidedly more spin-friendly than past generations of the Extreme series. Head also gives this racket a 360 Grommet System, which utilizes larger, funnel shaped grommets to promote greater string movement. The result, according to Head, is a stringbed that not only absorbs more shock but also delivers greater dwell time, snapback and power. Head also improves the feel with a thinner throat section, giving this racquet better touch on droppers and shorter strokes. On groundstrokes the Extreme S feels very accurate on full swings and it accelerates with explosive speed.
