Description of the Racquet
The Liquid Metal 170, 180 and 190 were Racquetworld's pick for racquet series of the year in the 2004-2005 season!!!
With this Liquid Metal series being under $100, this is probably our pick for best racquet for the $$$ right now.
Head combined the major success of their Megablast technology with their new Liquid Metal Technology to make a phenomenal frame. With the amount of power you get from this stick and the combination of touch in the front and back court, this racquet is unparallel.
The unique Liquid Metal atomic structure does not deform on impact, resulting in ultimate energy return and creates 29% more power in your shot!!
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
These are available in smaller 3 5/8 grip size only.
A full racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a full cover for $10 if you would like.
RacquetWorld's General Notes
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), or Head TackiMac† for the added traction to prevent slippage.† The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.
The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.† It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Ektelon Silencer (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet.Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.†
