Is there some secret about Head racquets?

Maybe an stupid question, because is almost always true the saying that is not the fish pole but the fisherman, but I wonder if the latest iterations of Head racquets, with its molecular technology have something to do with being at the top player's hands but Nadal these days. Just to name a few: Nole, Murray, Soderling, Gasquet, Cilic, Sharapova... Hmm, I wonder if there is some secret inside the racquets.

Yeah, it's working wonders for Cilic and Soderling

Their secret is to pay a lot of money sponsoring top tennis players.

Pure marketing bucks. That's it. Simple business tactics. I'm not knocking them, they make decent rackets, but I'm sticking with my Dunlop 4d 100's (which no pros "use") because its the best fit for ME. That's the key. Don't use it because a pro does, find a stick that fits your game.

Re: Is there some secret about Head racquets?

I agree head has been around for a long time and they make a lot of great racquets, my favorite now is the HEAD Youtek IG Prestige MP it is very flexible and yet very stable at the same time, great control and accuracy and very arm-friendly. I found that if I lowere the string tension I got the added power I needed. This racquet has a lot of the latest technology and has lots of postive reveiws. Definately worth trying

Re: Is there some secret about Head racquets?

I've had to revert to my head rackets as the string has popped in my Wilson Federer team racket twice in the last 8 months.

Re: Is there some secret about Head racquets?

I've got a Head racquet! In fact I've got about 10 of them. All the same model, and all obsolete. I think I'm afraid to upgrade. Or I just can't afford it.

Re: Is there some secret about Head racquets?

I think the better question is would these pros be playing at the same level they are right now with another racquet? In most cases, I think the answer would be yes. So it's not about what company the player is endorsed by but by their actual talent. Because as you know, Head is one the leading tennis racquet companies which means they can spend tons of money building a team of some of the best players. There's a ton of great racquet brands anyways (http://protennistips.net/best-tennis-racquet), I think it's just a matter of personal preference in my opinion
