Head YouTek IG Extreme
Pro 2.0 Tennis Racquet Review
How It Tested: For testers teeing off on the ball with full, fluid swings, the Extreme Pro 2.0 provided the rotation they craved. NTRP play testers 4.5 and above popped topspin shots that dive-bombed near the baseline. For many testers, the racquet was more comfortable and effective from the baseline than at net.
Likes: Offering a very solid feel, the racquet can help create expansive spin. While it is the heaviest frame in the Extreme family, it wasn't cumbersome from the baseline. The racquet was responsive on flat, kick and slice serves. The aggressive black-and-yellow cosmetic could attract younger players.
Dislikes: Due to its heavier swingweight, this racquet isn't as comfortable or maneuverable at net as it is from the baseline. The stiffest stick in the YouTek Extreme series, it is a touch more stable, but offers a slightly more dampened response than the prior version of the Extreme.
Bottom Line: Head recommends this frame for players with medium to long swings, but you must have a full swing to receive the greatest benefit. (If you have a medium swing, try the IG Extreme MP, which is 5 oz. lighter.) In the right hands, this racquet can go toe-to-toe with the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick.
