This black cosmetic version of the Graphene 360+ Speed Pro has the same specs and playability as the standard cosmetic version. By combining a traditional 18x20 string pattern with a buttery 62-RA stiffness, this racquet gives experienced players an impressive combination of control and feel. In addition to its 23mm beam, this racquet has good stability and plow through. The signature technology is Graphene 360+, which combines the easy power and extra stability of Graphene 360 with SpiralFibers in the lower head to help the racquet bend optimally at impact. From the baseline, the Speed Pro rewards full swings with a laser-like trajectory and pinpoint accuracy. It swings a tad heavier than the previous generation, making it slightly better at redirecting pace or driving the ball through the court. Although not as grippy as the Speed MP, our playtesters found enough spin-potential to bring the ball down effectively. At net, the Speed Pro comes around fast for the weight to deliver great touch and decent pop on punch volleys. It also shines on service returns where it not only feels solid on counterpunches and blocks but also delivers the kind of control that breeds confidence on aggressive replies. Like the standard cosmetic version, this sleek black version of the Speed Pro is a great option for those who want a more traditional feeling player's racquet with enough power to finish points.
