HEAD Boom Pro 2024 Review

by Jonas Eriksson

Is this the most exciting racquet by HEAD in the market right now? Let me know what you think. Here is my HEAD Boom Pro 2024 Review.

It is sometimes difficult to know what to call racquets. Is this a HEAD Boom Pro Auxetic 2.0 or should it be called by the year it was released: HEAD Boom Pro 2024. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Tennis Warehouse calls it the latter on their website, which I think makes sense.

Specs and tech

The mold is the same as the predecessor with the Isometric-inspired Morph beam for a larger sweet spot in the upper part of the hoop. While Auxetic 2 is placed in the yoke and handled to improve the feel. The racquet still has Graphene inside for improved stability.

The below average specs come from Tennis Warehouse Europe. You can purchase the racquet there with a 10% discount if you use the code TNERD10. This discount applies to all products except for Asics and heavily discounted gear.

Head Size:98 in / 632 cm
Length:27in / 68,5cm
Strung Weight:326g / 11,5oz
Unstrung Weight:310 grams / 10,9 ounces
Balance:31,98cm / 7 pts HL
Unstrung Balance:31cm/10 pts HL
Beam Width:22mm / 22mm / 21,5mm 
Composition:Auxetic 2/Graphene Inside/Graphite
Racket Colours:Black/Coral
Grip Type:Hydrosorb Pro
String Pattern:16 Mains / 19 Crosses
Mains skip: 8T,8H

The specs on my test racquet were aligned with the average ones above, so that was good for the test.

Who is it for?

The Boom Pro is for intermediate to advanced players looking for a modern racquet which offers some spin and power, but nothing excessive. You need to be able to generate some good racquet head speed to benefit from the Speed Pro. The racquet does not respond as well to slower and more compact swings in my experience. It does swing fast for its weight range, though.

How does it play?

I was impressed by the update to the Boom Pro. I thought they had reduced some of the inconsistencies from the previous generation, where you get somewhat erratic results from shots in the upper hoop. The feel is pretty plush and comfortable for a modern racquet and you are decently connected to the ball (not like you are with older HEAD racquets like the Prestige Classic 2.0, but you know what I mean.

My favorite shot with the Boom Pro 2024 was the serve. The racquet comes through quickly and you can snap down on the ball with ease. I also enjoyed it on my one-handed backhand where it was easy to manipulate on contact.

It does not play with quite the control of the HEAD Radical MP, but there is more power and forgiveness in the Boom Pro. I did not find the launch angle to be a problem with a full bed of Solinco Hyper-G Round at 51 lbs or 23 kg.


I had a lot of fun doing this HEAD Boom Pro 2024 Review. It delivered what I hoped it would, and in my video review, I called it the most exciting HEAD racquet in the current line-up. There are better racquets for control and the Boom MP and Extreme racquets offer more power, but this racquet is balanced and fun to use.

HEAD makes minor adjustments and facelifts to their racquets these days, and the Boom Pro is no exception. However, as long as the improvements are in the right direction, I think it’s fine. And if you want to make a bargain, you can always get the previous model when a new one is introduced at a good price.

I think the 2024 version of the Boom Pro is an improvement and an exciting racquet to play tennis with as long as you keep up the swing speed. I had a lot of fun testing it and my review buddy Karl Adrian agreed and is using the Boom Pro as his racquet of choice.

Hi Jonas, wonderful article as always. Just to note, small typo in the second sentence under “who is it for”. Likely should be Boom Pro instead of Speed Pro. I doubt that this will cause any confusion. I’m only pointing it out because the high quality of your articles leads me to believe that you’re a perfectionist and this comment will be well received. Regardless, thanks for all of your reviews!
