Racquet Head Size

Hey, few questions regarding the head size of a racquet.

What are the pros and cons of a racquet with bigger head vs. a
smaller head?

How many square inch is your racquet?

Btw, I'm thinking about getting the Head Liquidmetal Radical, if anyone have a review on that, thats'll be nice.

I think Agassi used that one, but I'm not 100% sure about that. Buy it! :)

i have a LM Radical OS, agassi used it even though it was a PJ.

Its a good racket if your a baseliner, gotta love the western grips :)

I find a racquet with a smaller head gives more power.

smaller head is more controlled, more powerful and better feel for me.

I'm surprised by the poster who said smaller head means more power. In general, bigger head=more power, less control.

I use a Wilson Rok, with a very small head (around 93 Sq In I think). One of the smallest around I think.

The PS6.0 85 got a smaller head ;)

And smaller head gives less power and more control.
The opposite does a larger head do, of course.

Yep, that's Sampras' old racquet right? Federer's racquet is also smaller. I think his is 90Sq In.

Also depends how fast you swing... if you like to take big, powerful swings its better to use a smaller racquet. But if your more of a steady type player, the bigger frame will give a little extra power without you needing to swing faster.

Big Head means more power but less control, and vice versa for a smaller head. Look on thewomens side at the Williams sisters who had massive racquets using the Wimbledon N4 and N3, really way too big for professionals or even decent younger players. I have not seen any male player use an oversized racquet
