After skipping a generation, the Extreme Pro is back and so is the dangerous combination of power and spin. As the heaviest member of the Extreme family, this stick is hefty enough for redirecting heavy pace or driving the ball through the court. It should also work for the intermediate player who is willing to trade a little speed for a more solid feel at impact. Like the lighter Extreme models, the Pro is extremely spin-friendly, and it has the needed mass to hit a heavy ball that drops hard and explodes off the court.
The Extreme Pro also benefits from Graphene 360, which is a material technology that strengthens the racquet at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock. It also comes with 360 Spin Grommets, which use larger funnel shaped grommets to enable greater string movement and vicious snapback (thin heavy ball rotation). From the baseline the Extreme Pro rewards full swings with juicy levels of power and spin, making it ideal for the aggressive player who likes to dictate action. The beefy 331 RDC swingweight not only provides a solid feel at impact but it will enable you to drive the ball powerfully through the court.
Thanks to a sub-65RA, this stick is more arm-friendly than many racquets in its class. At net, the Extreme Pro does a great job redirecting pace, and there's enough power to end points with authority. Aggressive servers will have enough pop to force weak replies. This racquet also shines on service returns where you'll have the mass to block the ball deep into opposing territory.
This update to the Extreme Pro is an obvious choice for big hitters looking to hit with a heavy combination of power and spin.
