New Head Graphene Touch Prestige 2018 [LEAK]

Head just announced a little teaser showing a few sneak peeks of their absolute legendary flagship. The Head Prestige 2018. It has long been awaited by all Head fans out there especially the ones playing the “old” prestige. The last prestige came out in 2015 and was a huge success but to be fair every prestige so far has been a best seller for Head. I have a feeling that this year won’t be different since not that much seems to be changed in terms of specs but a few fixes and upgrades will surely make a lot of Head Prestige fans happy.

WHEN IS THE RELEASE DATE OF THE PRESTIGE 2018?

According to the rumors of different forums the Prestige is coming to town in the middle of January. This timing makes a lot of sense for Head since the Australien Open 2018 take place from the 15th of January and it is a great event to fire their marketing rockets under the australian sun and equip their superstars with the new Prestige Graphene Touch. This is just a guess but I’m pretty sure Head will have a huge launch event at the Australien Open 2018 celebrating the newest version of their legendary racket.
tl;dr
Early – mid January

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

A lot. No, seriously. It will be as expensive as all the other Prestiges. The official Head website states that the new Prestige versions will cost $219.95 but I have to dissapoint you since the German Head website states a price of €280.00 (that’s about $330.00) which seems a lot more realistic for me but still too much. We can only assume the exact price but you will effectively get your hands on the racket for something around $250 – $300 at launch. Prices will drop for sure as they always do but if you want to have the Prestige on day one you have to pay the price for all the prestige 😉 !

Prices in Euro €

HOW DOES IT LOOK?

It looks nice! Very clean, minimal and dark. Since pictures say more than a thousand words:
