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 the HGP and the HPP have a standard length of 27 inches.

Strung Weight and Swing Weight

The HPP (337g) has a heavier strung weight than the HGP (332g) so it will feel heavier in your hand.

However, the HPP has a slightly lower swing weight at 325g versus the 332g of the HGP so the HPP will be the easier of the two tennis rackets to swing.

Balance

Both rackets have a racket balance of 6 points Head Light so they both will be very maneuverable.

Stiffness Rating

Both rackets have very similar stiffness ratings at 60 for the HPP and 62 for the HGP so you aren’t going to feel a huge difference in terms of arm friendliness between the two rackets.

Beam Width

Both of these Head rackets have a beam width of 20mm so they will be good for control.

Power

These rackets are low powered so you will need a full swing and good technique to be able to hit powerful shots with them.

String Pattern

The HGP and HPP have an 18×20 string pattern so you will get similar levels of control and spin.

Design

In my opinion, the HGP has a nicer design when compared with the HPP.

Availability

The HGP and the HPP are available to buy on online shops such as Amazon, Tennis Warehouse, and Tennis-Point.

Recommendations

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.
