HEAD Boom: Sending Shockwaves through the Tennis World
Updated: Mar 14
Remember when Wilson released the revolutionary Clash back in 2019? With its easy access to power and super soft feel, this racket took the tennis world by storm. Anyone and everyone who could handle its power was taking it for a test drive, and a good percentage even made the switch. Now HEAD is giving the Clash a run for its money with the brand-new Boom – sending shockwaves through the tennis industry.
Like the Clash, the power-oriented Boom has a soft feel and great flexibility. While not quite as “noodly” soft as the Clash, its effortless power is accompanied by a softer feel that most other power racquets. The Boom also delivers great ball feedback, touch, and a comfortable, arm-friendly feel. Players describe it as having controllable power and great ball pocketing – two great attributes in a modern player’s racquet.
HEAD has loaded up the new Boom with tons of racquet technologies like:
Auxetic construction in the yolk to optimize ball feedback - video
Morph beam construction offers extra feel and playability - video
Uni pattern (uniform string pattern) for consistent ball trajectory - video
Graphene 360+ for power and stability
Power grommets to maximize string movement for more power

While we recommend everyone give the HEAD Boom a try, it’s most likely to appeal to ambitious intermediate players who want a light and user-friendly, all-around player’s racquet. Advanced players seeking speed and stability will also enjoy the Boom’s explosive power.
The Boom is currently available for demo or purchase in both 98 and 100 square inch head sizes, both with 16x19 string pattern. You can shop the HEAD Boom at GSM online or in-store at any Game-Set-Match, Inc. location: Centennial, Denver, Boulder , or Las Vegas.
