Head Prestige Pro vs Gravity Pro Comparison
Racket Specs Comparison
Main Differences: The Head Gravity Pro has a bigger head size (100in vs 98in), a lighter strung weight (11.7oz vs 11.9oz), a heavier swing weight (334 vs 324), a less head light balance (6 pts HL vs 7 pts HL) and a higher frame stiffness rating (63 vs 58).
Similarities: Both rackets have the same racket length (27in), balance (6 Pts HL), beam width (20.0 mm), and string pattern (18×20).

Head Size and Length
The HGP (100in) has a slightly bigger head size when compared with the HPP (98in) so the HGP will have the bigger sweet spot.
Both rackets have a standard length of 27 inches.
Strung Weight and Swing Weight
The Prestige Pro (337g) has a heavier strung weight than the Gravity Pro (332g) so it will feel heavier in your hand.
However, the HPP has a slightly lower swing weight at 324 versus the 334 of the HGP so the HPP will be the easier of the two tennis rackets to swing.
The HPP has a 7 pts HL balance, while the HGP has a 6 pts HL balance.
Both rackets have very similar stiffness ratings at 60 for the HPP and 63 for the HGP so you aren’t going to feel a huge difference in terms of arm friendliness between the two rackets.
Both of these Head rackets have a beam width of 20mm so they will be good for control.
These rackets are low powered so you will need a full swing and good technique to be able to hit powerful shots with them.
The HGP and HPP have an 18 x 20 string pattern so you will get similar levels of control and spin.

In my opinion, the HGP has a nicer design when compared with the HPP.
If you are a beginner or intermediate tennis player then in my opinion neither of these two tennis rackets are great options for you as they are very heavy rackets with relatively small sweet spots.
If you are a beginner then you are better off going with an oversized tennis racket like the Wilson Clash 108 and if you are an intermediate player then you are better off going for a lighter racket like a Wilson Clash 100 or Babolat Pure Drive.
However, If you have a full swing, good technique and you have no issues generating your own power then I would recommend the HPP over the HGP as I think the lower swing weight and stiffness rating of the HPP will make it a better option for the vast majority of recreational players.
