Head set a standard last year with their Corrugated Technology and their fresh, edgy cosmetics. This year it is all about YOU(TEK). The new Head line incorporates all technologies necessary to maximize your performance. Newly added to the throat is the 'smart material' d3o which changes its behavior under dynamic loading and impact. Basically, if you hit hard it stiffens to maximize power, if you hit softly it stays flexible providing the touch you need.
Stack the Deck in your favor this year with the Head Royal Flush, coming in at 170 grams unstrung. True to Head's style, this racquet comes in Head Heavy, however less so than previous models. This more even balance provides greater control and maneuverability while maintaining the power you expect. Also added is the new Aramid Bumper - similar to kevlar this bumper guard increases durability at the head while also reducing head weight. For any player seeking max power and surprising touch, the Royal Flush is a must demo racquet for 2010!
