“The greatest conflict in tennis rackets is power and control because so far it has only been either there is power OR control. For power rackets we have the big frames and for precision we normally have a smaller tour racket,” said Ottmar Barbian, HEAD Vice-President, Racket Sports Division.
HEAD claims to have solved the conflict by taking a look at the materials used in racket construction. They have been using Graphene (200 times stronger than steel) since 2013. Now, they have turned to magnesium to revolutionise the racket construction.
By using magnesium in the bridge of the tennis racket, the technicians at HEAD have been able to capitalise on its unique properties.
There are two models in the range – the MxG3 and the MxG5. The MxG3 is aimed at tour-level or advanced players while the MxG5, with its larger head size and lighter weight, is aimed at club players.
