It will be easier to handle in both swings in the air and when hitting balls. Their Graphene 360+ technology gives the racket better durability, but also a smoother game and more balance which also makes it more ergonomic for the players.
The Comfort Foam core is of the softer variety, which gives advantages in defensive play and it also minimizes vibrations in the racket. Which gives better control in the game and minimizes the risks of strain on the player’s muscles and joints.
Most of the features of this racket are aimed at a defensive game, so it may be more difficult to get high balls away with high speed or to smash out opponents.

Our review for the Head Zephyr 2022
Mikael Rohana from Elitepadel has tested the Head Zephyr 2022 and gives the following review and rating:
“När jag testade Head Zephyr 2022 och jämförde med Head Zephyr Pro 2022 så upplevde jag att detta rack var lättare i vikt och därmed så tycker jag att Head Zephyr 2022 då var ett lättare rack att hantera på banan. Tack vare sin lättare vikt så är det också ett rack som sliter lite mindre på armen. Så mitt omdöme är att racket är en modell som jag absolut hade rekommenderat för damen eller herren som söker lätt vikt, mycket kontroll och en stor sweetspot.“
