Both the Speed Team and Speed MP tennis rackets have a 100in Midplus head size.

Racket Length

The Speed Team and Speed MP have a standard racket length of 27 inches.

Strung Weight

The strung weight of the Speed Team (298g) is 17g lighter than the strung weight of the Speed MP (315g), so the Speed Team will feel a lot lighter to hold in your hand.

Both the Speed Team and the Speed MP would be considered to be heavy tennis rackets, with the Speed MP being the heavier of the two.

Unstrung Weight

The Speed Team has an unstrung weight of 285g, while the Speed MP has an unstrung weight of 300g.

Swing weight

The Speed Team has a swing weight of 306g, which is 17g lighter than the Speed MP (323g), so a beginner to intermediate player will find it much easier to swing the Speed Team tennis racket.

Balance

The Speed Team has a 2pts HL balance, while the Speed MP has a 4pts HL balance so you will find it easier to generate power with the Speed Team.

Stiffness Rating

The Speed MP (62) has a slightly lower stiffness rating when compared with the Speed Team (66), so that combined with its more head light balance will make the Speed MP the more arm friendly tennis racket to play with.

Power and Control

The Speed Team is a medium powered tennis racket, while the Speed MP is a low to medium powered tennis racket.

As the Speed Team has a less head light balance, is lighter, and has a thicker beam width, it will be much easier to generate power with this racket when compared with the Speed MP.

However, this will come at the cost of control so more advanced tennis players may prefer the extra control you get from the Speed MP.

Player Level

The Head Speed Team is best suited to beginner to intermediate tennis players, while the Head Speed MP is best suited to advanced tennis players.

Beam Width

The Speed MP (23mm/23mm/23mm) has a thinner beam width when compared with the Speed Team (25mm/25mm/25mm), therefore you will get more control with the Speed MP but more power with Speed Team.

String Pattern

Both tennis rackets have a 16 x 19 string pattern, which is a good string pattern to use if you want more spin on your shots.

Grip Type

Both tennis rackets have a Head Hydrosorb Pro Grip, which is standard for most Head tennis rackets.
