Liquid Metal 8 Strung Tennis Racquet
Tennis-RacquetIf you’re new to tennis or simply looking for an updated racquet, try the Liquid Metal 8 Strung Tennis Racquet from Head – it’s getting great reviews. Powerful yet lightweight at only 9.3 ounces, it’s designed to give you maximum coverage while hitting the ball. You also get full control while hitting the ball back. It has a special kind of shock dampening technology (called No Shox) which is very effective, absorbing about 27 percent of the shock that occurs. The racquet has an extremely large head of 112 square inches so you’ll hit the ball every time you swing it, and it’s specially designed that the sweet spot is spread over the whole head.

The Liquid Metal 8 Strung racquet offers a solid mix of power, balance and control. It is powerful enough for you to hit the ball with strength, stable enough to make the player hit the ball without any major shock, and large enough to allow the player to hit the sweet spot every time. Available through Amazon. $84.95
