Saw the new Gravity line of racquets and snapped some photos.

All models are cosmetically identical. Aqua color on one side, orange-ish color on the other. These look fantastic!!

Gravity
Pro (100", 18x20)
MP (100", 16x20)
MP Lite (same)
S (104", 16x20)
Lite (104", 16x20)

Discuss :)

Vidda;

In the catalog, the Gravity "Tour" is listed but it's only an EU release. They will not be sold in the USA/NAmerica. Perhaps you can use your contacts to get ahold of one.

as soon as it's good to sell, we'll see what's possible for you

American players like heavy racket so it's not very understandable
(again, I do not understand the logic of HEAD)

Vidda;
The logic is really simple. Certain types of frames sell better in EU vs. US and vice-a-versa. According to their (Head) sales data, smaller players' frames like the Prestige MP / Mid sold much better there than here in the US.

Gravity Pro will be the "player" frame for the US (heavy, tight patterned). Head thinks that there is no need for the Tour model here. It's all based on sales, nothing more.

I have to agree with Head on this decision. I've been preaching to the higher ups to decrease SKU count. There's too much overlap. But sometimes these suggestions fall on deaf ears.
