Outstanding for returning recreational players
on June 19, 2014
I was on my high school tennis team almost 40 years ago, and the last time I played seriously was about 30 years ago. Now in my mid-fifties, I wanted to get back in the game for exercise. My last racquet (remember how long ago this was) was an Arthur Ash Head Comp strung to 63 lbs with VS gut. I simply love the Head Ti-S6! I love it's lightness, as it lets me move the head around quickly to make shots I couldn't even make in high school. It has a lot of power, whether for volleying, or for ground strokes. The control from the baseline is better than I have ever had, and I can put those baseline shots right over the net with tremendous power. The synthetic gut the racquet comes with allows quite a good spin, and while I don't know what the racquet is strung to, the strings feel taut, and have a lot of power. While it is of course still good to follow through, I've found that chopping when vollying still yields a fast return. The sweet spot covers most of the head of the racquet, and there is little vibration, with or without the included vibration dampener. Speaking of inclusions, when I bought it through Amazon from Bois Blanc Sports, it came with a very nice Head whole racquet case. Out of the box and with little practice, I am playing the best tennis of my life with this racquet. I much prefer it to my son's Head Liquidmetal 4, and I love to keep that 14 year old running at my age. I don't know if this is considered a geezer racquet, but if it is, I don't care, since it helps me play a couple of levels above my competence. I simply love this racquet, and recommend it without reservations.
