Head Speed Team vs Speed MP

The Head Speed Team and Head Speed MP are good options for recreational players who want to play with a lighter version of the Speed Pro, which is endorsed by Novak Djokovic.

In this article, I will be looking at the racket specs of the Speed Team and the Speed MP to see how these two tennis rackets compare to each other.

Head Size

Both the HST and HSMP rackets have a 100in Midplus head size.


The HST and HSMP have a standard racket length of 27 inches.

Strung Weight

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

Both the HST and the HSMP would be considered to be heavy tennis rackets, with the HSMP being the heavier of the two.

Unstrung Weight

The HST has an unstrung weight of 285g, while the HSMP has an unstrung weight of 300g.

Swing weight

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


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

Frame Stiffness Rating

The HSMP (62) has a slightly lower stiffness rating when compared with the HST (66), so that combined with its more head light balance will make the HSMP 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 HST 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 HSMP.

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

Player Level

The HST is best suited to beginner to intermediate tennis players, while the HSMP is best suited to advanced tennis players.

Beam Width

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

String Pattern

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