HEAD Great White 167 Racquet

Comments: This racquet combines great power and maneuverability into one package.  The weight of the racquet enables me to hit a multitude of different shots, while the 5 point head-heaviness gives me great power.  This racquet has increased my game greatly and at the price, wasn't too painful on the wallet.  Thanks RbW and Head for a great product!

Comments: I was playing with an Ektelon EXO RG, which was nice but this head racquet is in a totally different league. Power and control are increased noticeably. The sweet spot seems to be huge and shots that happen to not be in the sweet spot still seem very good. I have played with a lot of racquets and this is by far the best racquet I have ever played with. I would recommend this racquet to anyone.

Comments: I had originally been playing with an Ektelon RG 03, but through RbW's used racquet program I ended up with a Head Black Jack. The maneuverability and ability to hit kill shots on the move had me attracted to it, but being a lower ability level the racquet didn't match up all the way. So I tried the Great White, and this was the perfect combination of power and maneuverability. The extra stiffness was originally offputting, but after spending some time with it I wouldn't have it any other way.  I've been hitting thunderous backhands like I never have before, and the heavier swingweight had not been enough to put me off like I had felt with my initial reactions. After the adjustment period, every aspect of my game has been enhanced power-wise, along with enhancing my weak gets to become acceptable. Obviously it's not enhancing my fundamentals and I still need work on my footwork, but this racquet is hands down the best I've swung after demos of the top of the line Gearbox, ProKennex, Ektelon and Head. As a C level player, this stick is pretty killer. But, I get the feeling if I were a higher level player, my opinion wouldn't change. I think I have a weapon that's going to be valuable to me for years to come, but for a fraction of the price.

Comments: Just received two Great White Racquets. Nice looking white with flat charcoal color. The Spec's on the racquet, matches my style of play. Hits hard deep court with 5 point head heavy, with 151 swing weight, light enough for quick actions in front court. Best of all the price $$ RbW you have a winner here! thank you!

String type and tension: Factory for now, will upgrade to Tecnifibre 17 gauge multifilament 

Comments: I had just demoed the Zeus 165 (among others) and had already ordered another set of demos to come in soon.  When I was on the page, I saw the video for this racquet and thought it might be similar to the Zeus, but it sounded like it would have a bit more pop.  As Tom said, the price was right.  I ordered the package from RbW.The racquet came today and I had a court this afternoon.  I played with this stick for two hours and it lived up to all of my expectations.  The Conquest glove is a perfect match for it as well.This racquet is one of the best I have hit with in a while - and I have demoed a wide variety of the highest end racquets in the last couple months.  It hits similarly to the Zeus, but with more power and a bit more control.  I had no problem with front-court speed play or back of court drop shots (not to mention some fantastic kills with this thing).  I plan to order another to have as a backup racquet as well.

Comments: I stumbled across RbW's ad for this racquet and thought I would give it a chance. It was priced right and I was looking for something that would give my drive serves a little extra punch. I received the racquet yesterday and couldn't wait to try it. The look and feel of it were great. Last night, I hit the gym and put it to use. I could feel the power difference right away. Having the balance shifted moderately to the head of the racquet increased the swing weight just enough to increase speed without sacrificing the maneuverability. I purchased the Ektelon Attack Lite last year and used that for a while. The balance of that racquet was just too much. Great power, but no finesse. With this Great White, there doesn't seem to be the sacrifice of maneuverability at all. It is great in the front court as well as offering great power for high speed passes.
