One of the most established and innovative companies in the sport’s history, Head is now the preferred racquet for many professional tennis players on both the ATP and WTA tours. Here’s a look at some of the most current and popular models.

Head Youtek IG Speed

It took Novak Djokovic several months to get used to this frame, but once he did the racquet helped propel him to No. 1 in the world. With its 18×20 string pattern that helps a player maintain tight control over every shot, this racquet is best suited for advanced hitters with long and fast swings. The lightweight construction also makes it ideal for quick volleys up at net. Players who hit flat will love this racquet but it will also compliment those who like to add spin to their shots. Adding great response and feel on serves, the Head Youtek IG Speed is perfect for those players just want an all-around frame to give their advanced games an added edge on court.

Head Youtek IG Instinct

Maria Sharapova switched to this frame last year and completed a career Grand Slam with it in 2012 while Tomas Berdych had yet another impressive season on the men’s tour with this racquet as well. Best suited for intermediate and advanced players, the Instinct adds extra power to your shots just when you need it. An open string pattern adds extra spin while the racquet is also great for putting away volleys up at net. For those that like to hit big and powerful flat groundstrokes and go for huge serves, the Instinct will reward you with great control as well as allow you to add spin just when you need it. Even if that isn’t quite your playing style, this racquet is worth a demo due to its versatility and power.

Head Youtek IG Radical Pro

The racquet of choice for Andy Murray, the Radical Pro with its 98 square inch head is perfect for advanced players who seek added control on their shots. With more flexibility in its frame that many other Head models, the Radical Pro offers a lot of power on shots that may take some time to adjust to especially for those that like to really smack the ball. But it also allows one to be creative with drop shots and volleys up at net. Definitely a racquet for someone who plays an all-court game and enjoys constructing points from the baseline.

Head Youtek IG Extreme Pro

Used by Richard Gasquet and Mikhail Youzhny, this head light frame is ideal for players who hit one-handed backhands as well as those that need a responsive racquet up at net. The open string pattern adds extra spin while the heavier weight and larger head frame will boost power for shots hit from the baseline. Sometimes the frame might feel “hollow” on impact and for those that want a more solid feel on every shot, this might not be the best choice for them. But for those seeking an all-around good racquet that will enhance a crafty all-court game, the Extreme Pro just might be a perfect fit.

Head Youtek IG Prestige Midplus

Part of the most successful line of Head racquets ever made, this specific model is used by Gilles Simon. Offering a more forgiving feel than some other models in the Prestige family, the midsize version with its 18×20 string pattern provides excellent control while making adding topspin and slice a breeze on every shot. While providing excellent feel and touch, the racquet’s heavier weight might not be ideal for some but for those looking for a maneuverable racquet that suits a variety of playing styles, the Youtek IG Prestige Midplus is a great choice for upper intermediate to advanced players.
