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.
