Description of the Racquet
A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $10 if you would like.
Head has once again come out with 3 new racquets for the 2012-2013 season in what they are calling the "Deadly" series. These racquets are named the Black Widow 160g, Scorpion 170g, and Cobra 180g.
Over the last bunch of years Head has produced head heavy playing frames (weight distributed towards the top half of the frame). This year the balance on the Black Widow and Scorpion frames are right around even balanced and the Cobra 180g is actually a tad head light which means the weight is distributed slightly below the middle of the frame. What does this mean for you? This will give you the most powerful and maneuverable frame Head has ever produced and if youíre a Head racquet fan this might be the best racquet youíve ever hit.
Head Engineers packed these frames with the latest technologies including a new space age material called Innegra, the lightest high performance fiber material in the world. Innegra brings unparalleled power, stability and vibration control to the courts.
Paralyze your opponents with fear as you crank up the venomous power of HEADíS new Deadly Series. BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID!

These are available in 3 5/8 grip size only.
RacquetWorld's General Notes
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, 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 than 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. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and itís a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.
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.†
