A long time classic, the HEAD Intelligence i.165 Racquet has proven a to be a worthy stick. HEAD uses their Intellifiber technology to transform energy from ball impact into an electrical response that stiffens the racquet for ultimate power. The i.165 is head-heavy, creating a lot of power by moving the balance point closer to the impact zone. A medium swingweight explains the incredible balance of power and control from this lively, high-performance racquet. The i.165 is a great racquet for power players who have a medium-fast swing.

*Unstrung weight is part of the name given to this racquet by the manufacturer; all other specs are measured by Racquetball Warehouse USRSA Master Racquet Technicians on a Babolat Racquet Diagnostic Center machine. String never weighs more than 25 grams, so if there is more than a 25 gram variance between Unstrung Weight and Strung Weight then the manufacturer most likely measured the Unstrung Weight of the raw graphite frame (i.e. without grip, grommets, or paint). In addition, due to the porous nature of graphite material, manufacturers approve of a +/- 10 gram variance during the manufacturing process.
