Comments: The Head Ti.S6 is extremely light and in that way good for older players. I purchased it before
playing with it. It is so different to use, I would recommend trying it first. It took me 2 months to get used to it. I am 60
years old and thought the lightness would help preserve my singles career. Because it is light, it is easy on the arm but you
have to swing harder to get power, so that cancels the benefit out. I liked many aspects but found it not very good for
defensive shots, especially when the ball gets behind the body, so you really find it better if you hit the ball early or move
right into the shot. So, after finally getting used to it, and I am a touch player, the frame of the racquet became faulty after
3 months. The frame started vibrating on impact, even tho no apparent damage. I am in the process of returning it for a
refund. It would be a good racquet for someone with tendonitis or tennis elbow.
From: John, 7/15
Comments: This is the frame that the Head Graphene Instinct PWR used as a mold to create an updated
version from. The new version has a nice paint job, grip and butt cap -- but honestly, this version is also very nice. For $79,
this is one of the best racquet values there is for what it can do. Great extra racquet, fun to modify. Great as is for seniors
and beginners. I have seen some really good players use it and have seen players with flawed strokes improve their game
with it. But it sure plays different than traditional players' racquets.
From: Alex, 6/15
Comments: I had the opportunity to hit a few balls with a friend's Ti.S6 and bought 2. I just could not believe
the power, control and accuracy I suddenly had with a serve and groundstrokes. The weight and balance is perfect for me.
That is why I bought them!
From: Neels, 6/15
Comments: The strength of this racquet is incredible. I got this racquet 4 days ago and have played with it 3
times. As any racquet does, it has taken me time to get used to it. But, I really enjoy playing with such a light, strong
racquet. My accuracy, speed, power and serves have improved dramatically and I feel very comfortable playing with it now.
I highly recommend this racquet to anyone of any playing style. Thank you head for making another incredible racquet!

From: Corinne, 10/14
Comments: I recently got this racquet and it really suits my play style a lot. I tend to rush the net and volley
than I should so I sought out a racquet that had a larger head bigger sweet spot and lower weight that all the racquets I've
the past. I seldom have to worry about getting this racquet into position and have been hitting the sweet spot a lot more
I immediately noticed the string tension the first set I played. My accuracy has dramatically improved with the higher
well as my short and long shots. My power isn't as good as it used to be but the difference is very minimal. My serves
accurate but, they are more powerful. That could just be me though. When I get it restrung I'll most likely go with a slightly
string tension but, all in all this has become my favorite racquet and out of the 5 I own -- I use it every time now.
From: Shane, 8/14
Comments: The racquet is too light so it requires a very big swing to avoid hitting a short ball but at the same
raising the risk of errors. I gave it 10 matches to try and get used to it but I gave up.

Comments: I have customized this frame and that helped it to play even better. I cut it down to 27" standard
length. Added weight (4 strips of 1/2" lead tape), to the head. Added approx. 3/4 oz. weight to the handle. The frame is
10 oz., (still light), and has a head light balance now. It is also much more stable on volleys and ground strokes, and the
much more controllable. Lastly, I lowered the string tension to 56 lbs in the main stings, 51 lbs in the cross string, with two

From: Saurabh, 12/13
Comments: I have always been a power hitter, and relied on racquets that seemed to fit that swing style. A few
years back I decided to look for a new racquet and pulled one of these off the rack. Well, I had to do a double take
first thing that will impress you is how light this is. While there is something to be said for some heft to give you a sense of
in the racquet's ability to return high paced shots, my reflexes on net shots were instant. No weight to hinder getting the
in position. But what really astonished me was using it from the back court. The sweet spot is about the size of Cleveland. I
so much confidence in my strokes that I blew out the factory string set in couple of weeks. Got them replaced, and then
throat. But don't let that put you off the racquet. Just don't try to peel the cover off the ball with it. I think some lead tape
at 3 and
9 positions would give the head enough mass to protect the throat from excessive stress. Great racquet. It had a huge
improving my game.
From: Stephen, 8/13
Comments: I will not lie -- this racquet was not my favorite. My first reason, even though it may sound weird,
that it was too light for me to power though the ball. The second reason is the head size is so big and the size to weight
comparison is all messed up. I would say this racquet is good for a teenager or adult if they are beginning but if you are
play in hard matches, this is not your racquet.

Comments: I am a 60 year old tennis player returning after about a 25 year hiatus, although I started playing at
age of 5. Restarted 4 yrs ago and between me and my hitting partner who's tennis history, age and experience parallels
we have estimated that we have had 30 different racquets between the two of us the last 4 years. Ouch! We've both played
sports and still do several a piece. The TiS6 seems to agree with our age, elbows, wrists and learning curve to "modern"
with the help of a former touring pro. IMHO the TiS6 makes tennis more fun and fun is what it is all about. Strings: Lux BB

From: Andy, 5/13
Comments: I customized this racquet by cutting it back to 27." I removed the cover of the butt cap and
many cotton balls as I could down both sides. This brought the frame up to 10 oz. and an even balance. This makes the
much more stable on off-center hits and volleys and still has good power and performance. The open string pattern makes
easier spin too. I used to use the "players" frames and "tweeners," but now, with the modifications I made, this is working

always far from OS frames. Well, recently I was late when hitting with hard hitters with my over 11 oz frames that were my

anyone, I love this racquet.

Comments: This is a turbo-charged, super-light, rocket launcher in sharp contrast to the heavy player's
that I am used to. But the ease of swing, the comfort, and the effortless power are so addictive that I went ahead and
You need to shorten your swing and hit with topspin, otherwise the ball will fly out of control. I suggest applying lead tape
the handle to mitigate the head heavy balance. The racquet is very stiff and it would be wise to use a softer string at low
to avoid tennis elbow. Those macho guys out there with a false notion that this is a "granny stick," just swallow your pride
give it a try and you will be pleasantly surprised. Apparently this is the most popular stick amongst recreational players,
hope that Head continues to make this gem available for future generations.

forgiving racket on
serves. I found this racket to really be a baseliner's racquet. If you have a good controlled forehand/backhand this
racket can work
very well for putting a lot of power into your shots. It's nice for developing players, but as you begin to generate your

Comments: Great racquet for serve, volley, and backhand slice. I balanced the racquet by removing the
taped about 5in of 1/2" lead tape close to the base of grip. This also makes the base of the grip more like a bulb end of
grip, and still leave the rest of it close to the original grip size. Ended up with a grip size around 4 5/8" when finished,
racquet is now balance for good control and added weight to handle heavy serves and heavy hits. After the mod,
started to play
with more spin and it plays very well with the Ashaway Crossfire 17. Will try Forten Aramid Gear string next for more
a good racquet after some mods. Will buy another one with smaller grip 4 1/4" size to mod to around 4 1/2" which is
the grip size
I normally play with.
A note that adding weight to the head does not help that much since the racquet is already head heavy but very light.
weight close to the base of the handle to balance out the racquet is the way to go. My two cents input ;-).

Comments: I have just started using this racquet after trying one that another tennis coach was using. I
found that I
could control my serves much easier than with my Babolat Pure Storm+. I have used other Head racquets and have
found this one
to be the best of them hands down. I read the comments about returning power serves and strokes and have found
that I have not
had any issues. If you feel it is not weighty enough, try adding some lead tape to the head. I did have to adjust my
of the extra power so I wouldn't hit it past the baseline. The one issue I have found and only by talking to others, is that
occasion the head may break. Usually those people like to strike their racquet on the ground. As a High School tennis
would highly recommend this racquet.

Comments: Ok here is the take on the TIS6 from my perspective. The minuses:
It is for the most part a beginning players or weekend warriors racket, it is way too light for serious players. Having
said that to
each his own. If you are a serious level player and are using this with success more power to ya and enjoy but the odds
are you are
one of the few at that level using this.
What this is good for are balls that are coming at you no more than 40-60 mph tops; if you try using this racket against
serving 80 or 90 + mph you cannot get a solid return no matter what, there is just not enough weight behind this
racket to have
any control whatsoever and to be honest you'll spend the most part of the return just trying to keep the racket from
knocked loose from your hand this is not an exaggeration I tried and tried with this thing and I couldn't get it to work
serves with any speed.
As soon as I switched to my other rackets (liquidmetal 4 or Radical Midplus) there was the instant hefty solid feel and
don't forget the LM4 is considered light at 10.5 oz that's 2 oz heavier than the TIS6.
so this thing just is not for me.
The pluses: You can absolutely smoke your serves and passing shots with this if you learn to control it. You can with slow balls coming at you, but you'll have the same problem mentioned above if someone puts any speed on the ball at all. It's a lot easier to keep in the park than one could imagine with such a large head and high string tension I really had no problem with that at all I found it very controllable on ground strokes and the spin you can generate is quite amazing.

Comments: This racquet has a huge amount of power, which makes it a good choice for beginners. What
racquet lacks is control. I've been playing tennis with this racquet for 3 years and I can't control my shots as well as I
want to. I
usually hit the ball 4 or 5 feet from where I aim them and sometimes that can make the ball go out. Overall, this
racquet is great
for beginners but after you get to a 4.0 NTRP rating you should switch to a heavier stick.

then definitely use the Head Titanium.

swing on returning a serve, and the ball will just rocket off my racket. Spins come pretty easily, but I found topspin to
be easier to
hit than slicing with this thing. Not a very accurate racket by any means, but I was still able to place shots within 2-3
feet of where
I wanted it to go. Serving is rather hard to do. Groundstrokes are fine. A great racket for beginners.

Comments: I was amazed at reading all the comments regarding this racquet. It was regarded as one of
selling racquets in Australia by HEAD. It was not recommended for a younger player generally,as they usually want to
their own power with a narrower body racquet, as most pros do on the circuit. I have an original Ti S6, and when I saw
the price of
this racquet, I jumped at the chance to purchase four. I also have the next 3 racquets it was replaced with in Australia.
reading comments by players stating that the racquet is not good at topspin, volleys, smashes etc. Hellooooo, you're
and you're supposed to do all of those shots, not the racquet. It certainly helps if the racquet feels good when you are
those shots. For those who really know tennis, what suits you may not necessarily suit others. Your game may be
played in a
different way to others. That is why you should try racquets before you purchase them.

Comments: I've been playing almost 50 years and this is my favourite racquet of
all time. The light weight means very quick hands at the net, and a bit of wrist flick gives
tremendous power on serves. I tend to overhit the ball and hit long. When swinging for
power this racquet deadens the ball a bit and keeps my ball on the court. I have been using
my current racquet for well over 3 years now and am currently looking for another two. I'm
playing at a 3.5-4.0 level, so I'm reading comments from people who say this is a beginners
racquet and doesn't generate power, and I'm thinking they must have really short strokes
with not much back swing. If you can't generate power with this racquet, please, don't blame
the racquet. I'm bouncing balls over the fences and hitting the back fence in one bounce on
serves that are in. And consistently hitting winners on my return of serve. If you have
trouble hitting pace, I agree, this racquet probably for you. But if like me, you're looking for
a little more control, this is a great racquet.

Comments: I loved this racquet when I first started playing, but as others have
stated, you tend to quickly outgrow the Ti6 as you improve. I'm surprised at the previous
review that suggested using natural gut- the first time I had it strung with natural gut, I broke
a string after less than 1 hour of play. I've had 2 of these frames crack when I've had them
strung at the high end of the recommended scale, and yet when I had them strung at
low-mid tension I lost control, and the strings shifted so much (I hit with a lot of topspin, this
may not be such a problem for flat hitters) that I pop a string after only 3-4 uses with synthetic
gut. On the plus side, it's a great price for a game improvement racquet, and I think the
beginners on up to 3.0 level probably wouldn't go wrong with it.

that I play with better players. The lightness is quite useless when trying to counter a fast
heavy ball. You have to exert a LOT of force and the light frame does not dampen as much
