Legends never die. They’re only reborn. And so it is with the HEAD Prestige series, used in Grand Slam victories and played by past greats like Henri Leconte, Thomas Muster, Goran Ivanisevic, Gustavo Kuerten and Marat Safin.
HEAD’s YOUTEK™ Prestige series represents a new, reinvigorated design. The racquets incorporate d3o™ material, which allows the racquet to adapt to every shot, bringing the famous feel and touch of the Prestige to a completely new level.
HEAD originally introduced the Prestige in 1987, and it has been used to win every Grand Slam event – Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open. Gilles Simon and Stanislas Wawrinka are the top players using YOUTEK™ Prestige racquets.
“The updated Prestige racquets feature HEAD’s YOUTEK™ technology, which will enhance performance and meet each player’s individual needs,” said Johan Eliasch, CEO of the HEAD N.V. Group. “With the YOUTEK Prestige, players receive improved benefits of the previous racquet with an advanced technology to boost performance on the court.”
The Prestige line offers three models:
•YOUTEK™ Prestige Pro –The most aggressive Prestige comes with a leather grip and offers very superior handling. New smart d3o™ inside the classically designed frame pushes both power and control to the max.
•YOUTEK™ Prestige Mid – The smallest but also heaviest version of the Prestige provides extra stability and swing to perfectly suit hard hitters, who are nonetheless looking for perfect touch and control.
•YOUTEK™ Prestige MP – This racquet is the top choice of the touring pros. It combines maximum control with superior feel for excellent playability.
In addition, HEAD introduced the new Prestige bag line. The new bag lines are designed with extreme abrasion and dirt resistant material on the bottom; longer, padded shoulder straps; metal buckles; and a detachable, adjustable, convertible shoulder strap system. The new Tour Package is available now in pro/specialty and sporting goods stores.
