With some added leverage thanks to its 27.2 inch length, this Head player's racquet offers some added spin and pop compared to other control-oriented racquets. From the baseline, big hitting players will love the spin and pace they can get on their shots with this racquet. The open string pattern provides a lively feel and a generous sweetspot keeps the comfort level high. Our TW playtesters found the playability of this one to be easily manipulated by string choice. With a co-polyester string set up this racquet is ideal for big time, power and spin hitting. With a multifilament or natural gut string set up, the racquet provides exceptional precision and feel. At net the head light balance helps keep the racquet maneuverable while there's just enough mass to add some stick to punch volleys. Our TW playtesters found the same added power and spin on serves as they did on groundstrokes. Flat serves leave the stringbed with ample pace. When looking for spin, the maneuverable feel and impressive bite from the stringbed result in lots of action on both slice and kick serves. Best suited to intermediate through advanced level players, this one is a must demo for those seeking a blend of spin, feel, maneuverability and power.
