HEAD’s latest update to the Prestige series sees the much-loved control racket adopt their new flagship technology, Auxetic, to give more accurate sensory feedback every time you hit the ball.
Applied in the yoke, Auxetic refers to the way the carbon fibre is constructed – the fibres are arranged in such a way that they contract on ball impact, giving a more solid, stable feel.
Performance-wise, the new Prestige provides the classic hitting experience that players have been enjoying since the 80s. That means precision rather than power, so you can go for your shots and be confident they’ll drop inside the line. The Graphene inserts from previous generations are retained too, ensuring efficient energy transfer from racket to ball.
The Prestige MP L (formerly known as the S) also boasts a distinctive see-through carbon element and translucent heritage-inspired paintwork, upping the style factor on what’s already one of the game’s best-looking frames. It’s a lighter version of the standard MP with a more open 16x19 string pattern, making it easy to generate spin while maintaining a fair amount of built-in power – ideal for players just starting out with the Prestige range.

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.
