CPI is not a measure for court pace, but for a players mix. Let Lopez play Niculescu and then Nadal play Thiem or Federer play Djokovic. On the same court, one after other, so all conditions are quite the same. But the game is different. The same players mix can produce different CPI on same day, because something like standard match does not exist.
All HEAD Tour racquets are reported in the Head CPI Chart (Control-Power Index). The chart shows different values for each model of the respective racquet silos (families). Each Tour-Racquet (not all previously released but all upcoming Tour racquets) also indicates this value on the racquet at the outer shaft.
300 grams (or 10.6 ounces) is an average weight for a racket. Less than 285 grams (10 ounces) is considered light. More than 310 grams (or 11 ounces) is considered heavy. Tennishead suggests…. As you’d expect, a heavy racket in general means more power but less manoeuvrability and vice versa with a light racket.
In a sense, power potential measures what the racquet does. In a nutshell, it tells you the percent of the combined collision speed of the ball and racquet that remains after the ball leaves the strings.
The updated PRESTIGE TOUR TENNIS RACQUET, with the innovative new Auxetic construction, allows the technical tour player to compete with modern precision.
A racquet for every game. Speed, Gravity, Radical, Prestige or Instinct - find the HEAD racket thats right for you.
