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.

Note: Racquet does not come with cover.

d30

d3o belongs to the "smart materials" category, which is a futuristic material with abnormal behavior characteristics. More specifically, d3o belongs to a subcategory of "dilatant foams", which dramatically change their behavior under dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the lay-up and positioned in the shaft of the racquet, d3o offers new possibilities for tennis players.

The d3o technology is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes (it's able to adapt to you). On high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slice or drop shots), the d3o molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. What does this mean to a tennis player? Passing shots are even harder and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.

Innegra

Innegra is the world's lightest high performance fiber. Its extreme toughness together with Head's advanced carbon composite technology leads to an ultra tough hybrid composite.

This Head Innegra hybrid-composite structure is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. As a result vibrations are reduced by up to 17% on ball impact for improved control and precision -- protecting the player from the forces of a ball impact. On top of this, Head's new hybrid-composite structure with the ultra tough Innegra fiber considerably extends the performance of a Head racquet. With Innegra, racquets remain in perfect condition without losing any performance properties.
