The Zone 100 (2022) is the better option in terms of power, but the Speed MP (2022) is better in terms of arm friendliness, spin, and control.
Player Level Recommendations
In my opinion, both rackets are best used by intermediate tennis players as beginners will find them too heavy, and more advanced players will want more control.
If you are an advanced tennis player, then the Speed MP will suit you better as it offers more control.

The Speed MP is endorsed by Bianca Andreescu, Jannik Sinner, Karolina Muchova and Sloane Stephens.
