The Gravity Pro and Gravity MP are two of the most popular tennis rackets released by Head in recent years as they both offer an excellent combination of power, spin, and control.
This article will look at the racket specs of these two rackets to see how they compare to each another.

In the comparison below I have used the 2021 version of the Head Gravity Pro (or “HGP“) and Head Gravity MP (or “HGMP“).

Both the HGP and HGMP tennis rackets have a 100in Midplus head size, which is pretty standard nowadays.
The HGP and HGMP have a standard racket length of 27 inches.
The strung weight of the HGP (332g/11.71oz) is 20g heavier than the strung weight of the HGMP (312g/11.01oz), so the HGP is significantly heavier than the HGMP.
Both the HGP and the HGMP would be considered to be heavy rackets.
The Gravity Pro has an unstrung weight of 315g (11.11oz), while the Gravity MP has an unstrung weight of 295g (10.41oz).
The HGP has a swing weight of 332g (11.71oz), which is 9g heavier than the HGMP (323g/11.39oz) so the HGMP will be easier to swing and maneuver (especially at the net).
The Gravity Pro has a 6pts Head Light (or “HL”) balance, while the Gravity MP has a 3pts HL balance.
Both tennis rackets have a stiffness rating of 62, which when compared with other similar rackets is relatively low.
The Gravity Pro (20mm/20mm/20mm) has a thinner beam width when compared with the Gravity MP (22mm/22mm/22mm), with both rackets focused more on control than power.
Power and Control
Both rackets are relatively low powered rackets with the HGMP being more powerful than the HGP.
However, the HGP with its thinner beam width and more HL balance is better in terms of control.
Recommended Player Level
Due to their weight and relatively thin beam widths, these rackets are best used by advanced tennis players.
However, the HGMP could be used by an intermediate player as it has a more manageable strung and swing weight.
The Gravity MP has a 16 x 20 string pattern, while the Gravity Pro has an 18 x 20 string pattern, with both string patterns providing a good level of control.
Both tennis rackets come with a Head Hydrosorb Pro Grip as standard.
