Price Alert

No stringing options available - this racquet comes pre-strung from the manufacturer with their brand of synthetic string.

A medium-powered racquet offering a dampened and comfortable playing feel, the LiquidMetal 4 tennis racquet uses Head's latest LiquidMetal technology as well as Head's proven TwinTube technology. Designed to give the racquet more power, LiquidMetal is placed at the 10, 2, 4 and 8 o' clock racquet head positions in what Head calls Total Sweetspot Construction. Total Sweetspot Construction incorporates a corrugated construction to further increase stability in the racquet head. The LiquidMetal 4's broad appeal among intermediate players places it firmly in the "tweener" category. Offering a near even balance, the LiquidMetal 4 is a step away from previous head heavy "tweener" offerings. We found a controllable amount of power, a comfortable feel and an easy to maneuver racquet. During playtests, we found even shots struck near the frame came off the racquet with surprisingly little shock. The LiquidMetal 4 should appeal to 3.0 to 4.5 level players looking to add some power and a comfortable feel to their game.

LiquidMetal®
Developed by the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), LiquidMetal® alloy provides 29% more power than Titanium. Just as its name implies, LiquidMetal® alloy is different from conventional materials because of its liquid (or "amorphous") atomic structure. This means that LiquidMetal® alloy does not deform on impact, resulting in ultimate energy return.

Head places LiquidMetal® at four strategic areas of the racquet's head, integrated in the main layer of the frame's construction. This allows all of the energy from ball impact to be used for a power return - so what a player puts into his or her swing is exactly what they get out. The result is what Head calls Pure Energy. Perfect Power™

Integrated String Dampener (ISD)
Affixed to the grommets at the base of the head, the (ISD) absorbs string vibration. Now even the most powerful racquet is easy on the arm and completely comfortable, no matter what style of play.

Total Sweetspot Construction
Total Sweetspot Construction increases torsional stability in the racquet head and extends the sweetspot throughout the entire racquet head, resulting in ultimate control.

TWINTUBE Technology

FEATURE:
The inner hard shell of TwinTube technology is made of pure graphite. The outer shell consists of soft, absorbing polyamide.

BENEFIT:
Increased ball acceleration combined with better, overall racquet feel.

NoShox Dampening System
A newly developed "memory foam" integrated into the racquet handle reduces vibrations 27 percent better than systems in conventional racquets.
