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

The Liquidmetal 8 is a solid choice for players looking for a game improvement racquet offering plenty of control and some useful power. 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 8 is surprisingly comfortable for a racquet in the power end of the spectrum and provides a dampened feel during play. Easy to maneuver, the Liquidmetal 8 will benefit both players with short and medium swing lengths. From all areas of the court, we found the Liquidmetal 8 to be very stable for such a light racquet - helped by an almost even balance. Stronger improving players will find good control by adding more spin to their strokes with the Liquidmetal 8 - easily done thanks to the racquet's spin friendly stringbed. At net the racquet feels stable, controllable and very comfortable. Best suited to players at the 2.0-4.5 level.

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.
