Players familiar with the Classic, Intelligence and Liquidmetal versions of the Prestige line will notice a crisper and stiffer response from this Prestige. While the emphasis is still heavily on control, we found some extra power from all areas of the court. From the baseline we found this one to provide some added depth and pace to both topspin and slice groundstrokes. The weight, balance, and swingweight provides a familiar, Prestige-like feel. This one retains a classic, solid feeling response without sacrificing mobility. The feel off the stringbed is not as buttery as found with the Prestige Classic, but the racquet offers more stability on off-center shots and a more solid feel than we found with the Liquidmetal Prestige. As with other Prestige Mids, this is the most demanding racquet in the HEAD line-up but rewards with more control and feel than most player's racquets. All in all, the weight and headsize combine to put this one in the serious player's racquet category. In the hands of advanced 5.0 to pro level players with fast, full swings, this racquet can be the perfect match.

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
