We are lucky enough to test and play with many different racket this season and for sure we want to share our feedback with you. 

Today we will focus our attention at a very capable tennis racket - the Head Graphene 360+ Speed S, which is lightweight and maneuverable racket with lots of potential for mid-level and advanced players. This is our first review of the 360+ Speed S after an hour playing with it, so it will be mostly specs, first impressions and general thoughts.

From the Graphene 360+ Speed series we would also recommend the Graphene 360+ Speed MP which is a great racket for tour players, whit lots of power and very good control.

But now lets go back to the Speed S and the first impression video review that we prepared for you:

Head Graphene 360 Speed S - first consumer impressions (video)



As mentioned in the video the Speed S is very similar in specs to the Instinct S (same head size, similar weight) but they feel completely different. Head Graphene 360 Instinct S is the more dampened racket which we felt generated more spin and a bit less power.

For pro players looking for more power and stability we would recommend the Speed S.

Head Graphene 360+ Speed S  Price

Now lets talk about the price of the 360+ Speed S. Since this racket is part of the latest and improved Speed series it is still quite expensive. The price varies around $180 and $220 unstrung.

What we see these days with Head and probably most other manufacturers is that all old models have huge discounts. For example we found the previous generation Speed S which is still an amazing racket released 2018 and can be bought $100 brand new. 

And here are some of the previous Head rackets that we have tested some time ago and are kind of similar to the Graphene 360+ Speed S:

  1. After couple of games I had to sell my Head Graphene 360+ Speed S. Even though it is a very good racket, I lacked a bit of control and also didn't get used to the slightly smaller sweet spot (compared to my Head Instinct S).
