Liquidmetal Rave

05/01/04 - A lighter weight control racquet with a slightly smaller head size
for players with a moderate to longer swing style.


Liquidmetal Technology - This technology is designed to utilize all the energy a player's swing generates. Liquidmetal alloy does not deform upon ball impact because of its liquid (or "amorphous") atomic structure. HEAD has further maximized its benefits by applying it to four strategic areas of the racquet's head, integrated into the main layer of the frame's construction. This allows all the energy from ball impact to be used for a power return: What a player puts into his/her swing is exactly what they get out of it. The result´┐Ż Pure Energy. Perfect Power.

Total Sweetspot Construction - The area of the racquet head that delivers the best results upon ball impact - the sweetspot - is spread throughout the entire racquet head for increased torsional stability.
