Head YouTek Speed Lite
Released September, 2009
The Pros:Very lightweight but with a good feel. Very easy to get used to--great racket for beginners. Adds plenty of topspin to the ball all by itself.
The Cons:A bit too light for some tastes. Fairly small sweet spot.

Despite being light, it offers a generous 102 square inches of head size—more than enough room for customization by ‘bigger hitting players.’ The centerpiece to the Speed Lite is its YouTek technology, which includes d3o adaptive materials that change behavior under dynamic loading or impact; Teflon for less friction and greater power; and Aramid bumpers. The d30 materials — dubbed ‘smart materials’ — host meta-morphing molecules that remain soft during slow hits, but lock up tight on harder, more powerful strokes. It essentially ‘senses your needs’ and then adapts accordingly.
