The Head Metallix 170 Racquet is designed to be a powerhouse! Head's Metallix technology combines a matrix of carbon fibers with a crystalline metal alloy 1,000 times smaller than a conventional metal structure; this added stiffness allows for maximum power and prevents energy loss from ball impact. Two precisely engineered holes, called Flexpoint PWR, are strategically positioned in the center of the racquet's sweetspot creating a "cupping" effect which adds even more power potential. With a 5 point head-heavy balance and 157 swingweight, the Head Metallix 170 generates consistent power in the hands of a fast swinger, but will also easily accommodate players with a slow to moderate swing.
All racquets come factory strung with a wrist cord installed. Click the Specs tab for more details.
