Head Graphene Tennis Racket Previews
The new Head Graphene Tennis Rackets are now available for demo and sale to the public! If you live in the Washington DC metro area, try TennisTopia in Rockville, MD.
- Graphene Speed MP and Graphene Instinct Models
- YouTube Channel for the Graphene Speed MP "unwrapping" video as we slowly peel the fresh foils from Djokovic's New Speed Racket (debuting at the Aussie Open, is our guess).
- *NEW* YouTube 3-Part Video of Indoor Playtesting of the Graphene Speed MP - this was recorded about a month ago around Christmas time, but we are only now able to publicly show it via YouTube.
- FAQ: What is Graphene? ("Material of the Future"?)
Sincere Thanks! We were very fortunate to be able to demo the brand new Head "prototypes" courtesy of TennisTopia in Rockville, MD (voted #1 in 2012 and 2013 as Tennis Shop of the Year winner).
Check out our March 2012 review of the current Head IG line (Instinct, Speed, Radical, Prestige) for a comparison look. Many of these rackets are now going to be sold at a discount because of the Graphene Line coming out (another bonus to our tennis bargain hunters)!
Sneak Peak at the 2013 Head Graphene RacketsFor those who just can't wait, we at Tennis Bargains are again working tirelessly to bring you all the details, pictures, play test reviews and videos here first! Below is a glimpse of what the future holds...think of us as your Tennis Santa Claus =)
What has been our impression: Love the new sticks so far; this year Sharapova's Instinct might out-gun Djokovic's Speed racket with better pop and a well-rounded improvement on the IG models!
The new material they added is a carbon-based, creation called "Graphene". They can layer ultra-thin sheets of this material to strengthen the racket's structure. The graphics printed on the throat edge of the racket are suppose to be Graphene molecules...think of it as the next LiquidMetal for Head.
Video Play Test FootageTennis-Bargains has play test footage as we pit the Head Speed/Instinct up against the Babolat AeroPro Drive (all are 100 sq inches, 16x19 open pattern)...which one did we like? which one should you buy in 2013?? Stay tuned...
We actually demo'd and playtested the 2013 Head rackets on court against the Babolat AeroPro Drives - YouTube Video coming out soon...
See how these new models do against each other as two 4.0-4.5 USTA players play each other. It's now "On like Donkey Kong" as they say... Check back for more updates and below for all our HD Closeup Pictures (below)...
