The new HEAD Extreme 2024 is hitting stores in July. The cosmetic is bolder and there is Auxetic 2 in the layup.

The new HEAD Extreme 2024 is the update to HEAD’s spin line, endorsed by players like Matteo Berrettini, Barbara Krejcikova, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, Jan-Lennard Struff, Richard Gasquet and Bianca Andreescu. It is a line of racquet that competes with Babolat Pure Aero, Wilson Shift, Yonex VCORE, Dunlop SX and Tecnifibre TFX1.

The Extreme has always been some shade of yellow, and this time, it goes from the 2022 Avocade style cosmetic to a bold neon, going over to some kind of light beige. It looks nice in person and although I haven’t held it in my hand yet, I have seen it up close in the hands of Matteo Berrettini and Jan Lennard Struff here at the Boss Open.

What to expect from the new Extreme?

From BOSS Open stringing room, racquets belonging to Nakashima, Gasquet, Berrettini, Struff, Duckworth and Shelton.

There are no specifications published yet from HEAD or at Tennis Warehouse, but from what I have heard, they are renaming the Extreme Tour to the Extreme Pro. UPDATE, below you have a grainy pic of the HEAD Extreme Aux 2 specifications:

I assume that adding Auxetic 2 will bring a well-dampened and solid feel, similar to what happened with the other models. If you want a more raw response, the Graphene 360+ models are a better option if you can find them on forums and for sale sites. However, I felt that Auxetic worked well in the Extreme Tour after extensive testing.

I am most excited about the Tour or Pro model, but I know the MP 300-gram version has plenty of fans. We will update this page as soon as I have more information and specs, so make sure to check back!

I have been hitting with the MP Extreme 2024 for a couple weeks. Play with a Mult String 17 gauge Tech NRG2 at 54 love this feel and the racket. I use a Yonex EZone 100 and played with a Babalot Pure Drive prior. This one is really plush and soft on my arm ( elbow issues from the past) and feels great. Easy to maneuver and serves are easy to get in. Color in person is nice if you like yellow . If you do not like yellow will not like it.

I’m an Extreme Tour player. But with that look, it’s gotta bring something new/special to the table. Basically, you have to buy certain strings and a Tourna grip to make it look decent. The Lemon Creamsicle isn’t working for me. I’ll just play what I got and maybe get another Avacado Tour at half price.

Hi Jonas,

Would you recommend a Wilson Blade player like me switching to Extreme Tour or Pro ? I love the blade very much for its stability and control but I really like that new Extreme’s yellow lol.

We all know which racket on that table is Gasquet’s. But is that Berrettini’s racket with the number 26 on it? Is he stringing at 26kg?

Graphene 360+ all the way! Silicone in handle and lead at 9-10 /3-2. Auxetic flex was off to me, lost feel and precision. .
