Here is a review from Do It Tennis


Another one from tennis express

Looks like the racket is rated as an S8 in the Head power scale which confirms what the reviewers said in the videos; that this racket generates a lot of power (at some expense of control) and is suited for those who have a shorter swing stroke.

Review...
For those that like a lightweight and maneuverable racquet, this one is great. Note - this racket is geared towards those that need more power (or rather, are looking for more power) out of their swing and usually do not generate a lot on their own.

It is comfortable, has a nice blend of power-to-control ratio and easily able to put spin on the ball...I'd recommend for those newer to the game...

[EDIT] - removed the recommended NTRP comment which pretty much is summed up in the vids. Don't want to sound like a broken record, repeating what they said!


===========
I was hoping this was the heavier one and it would be a BUY (for me) as I'm a heavy baseline player...sometimes serve and volley

In for one. I could always use more power!

I'm tempted to buy it in hopes that it will encourage more tennis woots. A nice deal on a case of ball would be great!

S8 is pure power. My friend had an S8. I couldn't consistently keep it in play, but I could smash serves. I had an S1 or S2. I kept that one in play almost always, but certainly lost some power.

I'd say an S8 is equivalent to getting one of those golf drivers with a 460CC head. It gives you a big sweet spot and some power. However, if you're able to hit a sweet spot well anyhow, control might be more important. Depends on your skill level and needs. Head makes good racquets : )

This racquet is $129.00 on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/
No reviews there but this is a quality stick. A fairly large head with lots of pop.

At 115sq. inches, this racket is obviously for a blind person. Serious players don't need any more than 95sq. inches. If you're old or a beginner, this is the racket for you. If you are getting this for an experienced athlete, DON'T!

Agreed. I think this raquet would be great for someone whose in between fly balls and topspin serves. Great to learn on but once you've got your placement down, you'll probably start looking at something with tighter control...although some tightly strung synthetic gut/kevlar strings would probably help this raquet out considerably.

Heres a good discussion on strings, OP is using this raquet, read on til post #17 to find that out.

I hate to pass on this. I was told when I was younger never to pass on a chance for Head because then you are always one behind.

A NTRP 2.5 or 3.0 could use this frame. It will increase ability at the net and serve. As you move up in ability to 3.5, then consider the Head youtek 102 frame or my frame of choice is the Wilson BLX Blade team (104 in and 11.4 oz weight). I am an older player on the way down. Once a solid 4.5, now a weak 4.0 looking to bump down to 3.5 so that I can dominate again.

I would like to get something for my wife to play tennis with me. Is this a unisex racket or does it matter? Based on the other reviews,the larger area would help her hit the ball but what other factors should I look at for a racquet?

There's really no difference. My wife is very small and she's played with the same racquet I do since we were in high school. This would be great for her. Being an oversized raquet, it will have a large sweet spot so theres more room for error. It's got a high power rating which I'm sure she'll appreciate. It's also fairly lightweight which is a plus for most. I'd advise replacing the strings though.

This is for the older player who lost the speed in their swing. Never retailed for $200. But good price for probably 3.0-3.5 older player who likes to chip and slice their way to victory.

Would this be an improvement over my Wilson T2000?
