HEAD Hawk Power Podcast with Dennis Fabian

by Jonas Eriksson

Dennis Fabian is the Global Business Manager of HEAD. He joined the Tennisnerd podcast to discuss the new string HEAD Hawk Power.

HEAD Hawk Power – a string that sings!

This is not the first time Dennis has joined the Tennisnerd podcast. This is the fourth. I always enjoy talking to Dennis. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry. He worked many years with Prince before his stint with HEAD, and he is already on year five with the Kennelbach company. If you’re into tennis gear, I highly suggest you check out our previous podcasts on YouTube or Spotify or iTunes.

In this episode, we talk about a new string called Hawk Power. I tested this string briefly during my visit to the HEAD HQ in Kennelbach in April, and, to be honest (and I’m always honest), this petrol-colored string wowed me. It was arm-friendly yet offered good control and excellent sound on impact.

You should not underestimate the importance of the sound of a racquet and string. It’s kind of like a race car; it makes it more fun!

Made in the USA

HEAD Hawk Power is made in a factory in Nashville. This is the first product from HEAD to come out of this factory. Since Nashville has a rich history of music and the sound of the string is one of the selling points, I thought it should come in an LP-style packaging with a tagline like “a string that sings” or something. But maybe the next string out of the factory can be marketed in that way.

I have only tried one set of HEAD Hawk Power in my Extreme Tour Nite and loved it. But I want more time with it to make a proper review. The supply chain is still under some stress for most companies in manufacturing, so I’m not sure when I can get some sets for a test. But when I get a green light from HEAD, I hope we can do some community testing as we did with HEAD Lynx Touch. More about that to come, so make sure you subscribe to our newsletter and on Instagram and YouTube.

Several pros have already made the switch to Hawk Power, so this is definitely an interesting string for intermediate to advanced players.

Is the target string ALU Power as it was Hyper G for the Lynx tour?

TN October 10, 2022 - 23:21

Yes :)

I would love to test the Hawk Power, thats for sure ;) Thanks for the interview Jonas, great job! And a really worthy LP marketing tip. I would enjoy a different funny package. Best wishes from northern Germany

Interesting. I play with ALU Power soft a lot. Even that string is not really soft. If they managed to reproduce the ALU control in a softer package, that indeed would be great

Hi Jonas, very interesting podcast and I find great this new option from Head. If you could, I wish to test this new Hawk Power. Thanks

Would love to test this string as well. Currently using 4G soft but heard just awesome reviews about it!

What pro’s have switched to hawk power?

Noah December 15, 2022 - 05:44

Yeah, would it be possible to test the string somehow?

TN December 19, 2022 - 09:30

That was the initial plan. But the factory where the strings are produced was flooded, and now there are some delays. I hope to get some out to readers.

Any news on when the release date is?

Jaime February 15, 2023 - 19:18

Hawk Power is definitely on the softer side, but not as muted as HyperG. More pop than Lynx Tour with similar (very good) tension maintenance. Color looks great in 360+ Extreme Tour!
