Comments: I am very impressed with this Racquet. Great power even from back of the court.Very maneuverable in front as well.Very light on arm and doesn't seem like 165 gm when comes to power.the only complain I have is its not forgiving on miss shots and lacks control but it could be attributed to my grip on the racquet.

Comments: Just finished a week of demoing the Head Submission and 3 Gearbox Solid 1.0 Racquets (165T, 170T and 170Q). All of these racquets played extremely well, however, the Submission rose to the top for me. The Submission has power and lots of control. Plays well up front and at 38 feet. Racquet is very maneuverable and feels like an extension of your hand. Great grip!!! Racquet supplies power when you need it for passing and goes to the ceiling equally well....great all court racquet. Great graphics as well! Really would like to play this racquet with 17g string. Highly recommended demo!

Comments: Demo'd the Submission and 3 of the Gearbox Solid 1.0 racquets. Really like all of these racquets. However, the Head Submission rose to the top for me. Racquet plays exceptional well up front and back. Has power but plenty of control for touch shots and lobs. Took a little while to acclimate to the racquet since it is head heavy, but once I adjusted to the racquet everything came alive. Overall, this racquet will cover the court from fast and furious front court rallies to kills at 38 feet. Wonder why Head doesn't string it with 17 gauge? This racquet is definitely worth a tryout!

Comments: This racquet is sweet. You feel like you can punch a hole through the wall or feather a shot into the corner. Head's best racquet.  Used by top pro's Rocky Carson and Ben Croft.

Comments: This racquet hits a TON....You can feel the weight difference even though it's only 5 grams. Feels very solid and the racquet generates a TON of power. No issues with front court play, it's very easy to swing and move. Has the same feel as the AMP line of racquets, no fear of clipping a wall and breaking a racquet.
