Head racquets......

I hit with the Head Microgel Radical the other day and really liked it.

Just wondering, what's the difference between the Flexpoint range and the Microgel range? Is it worth me trying out the Flexpoint before going ahead and getting the Microgel? I hear the Flexpoint Prestige is a good racquet, anyone that plays with it know its strengths and weaknesses?

Re: Head racquets......

the microgel is the new range. it is basically a very light material, that helps to keep the weight down and increase stability. the prestige is heavier and much stiffer than the radical, but is a great racket

Re: Head racquets......

do not take adive on buying a racket from someone else when buying something so personal

the prestige is very stiff and a small sweet spot so you have to be reasonably good to play with it properly and get the most out of the racket

Re: Head racquets......

The flexpoint prestige is shit compared to the liquidmetal prestige. If you wanna have a real taste of the prestige, go for the liquidmetal.

Re: Head racquets......

Go for the HEAD prestige classic, I buy it from Ebay, (yes it is real, from austria) only 80 dollars. This is by far the best HEAD racket as ive just mentioned in the racket thread.

Liquid metal is garbage, i played with one before, only for one week cause I smashed it - it was so shit. Felt like a piece of plastic. No feel at all. Small sweet spot and a complete waste of money.
