Head YouTek Speed Pro
Released September, 2009
The Pros:High stability from strikes all over the court. Provides above average spin for this price range and against other Head racquets. Great choice for plow throughs, with larger head than many previous models.
The Cons:Requires a significant bit of skill and technique to handle properly. Heavier head on average than many other racquets in this price category can make some shots feel draggy.

It in fact weighs almost 12 ounces, giving it the mass needed for aggressive hitting and for slicing through the contact zone with superior stability. Like its Speed peers, it also hosts 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. A professional player who uses the Head YouTek Speed MP is Novak Djokovic.
