Updated with Graphene 360+ technology, the new HEAD Prestige sets the benchmark for control-focused rackets, giving you greater flex to go with the range’s longstanding reputation for precise shotmaking.
By redistributing mass in keys areas of the racket – the top and sides of the hoop, along with the throat – Graphene 360+ stabilises the frame on ball impact, optimising energy transfer to generate increased power. Brand new Spiralfibers, meanwhile, allow increased flex in the shoulders of the racket, giving you a more comfortable, natural feel. In short, it’s everything you’d expect from the Prestige dialled up an extra notch.
A new, asymmetrical paintjob gives the range a striking, modern identity, while fans of HEAD’s CAP System will be pleased to see bodycolour bumpers integrated into the frame for a sleek look.
With an unstrung weight of 305g and a 99 square inch headsize, the Prestige Tour strikes a happy medium between playability and power potential. It’s comfortable to manoeuvre and feels relatively light in the hand, but if you hit the ball fast and hard you’re still going to be putting away loose returns with ease.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
