Take the god of war into the courts with you when you battle with the Head Ares 175.  Head's patented CT2 (Corrugated Throat) technology, combined with a head-heavy balance, gives this racquet the muscle you need to kill balls from the back wall.  There's no doubt that power is what this racquet exudes, as the mighty Ares' battle-lust would permit nothing less.  Head's Innegra technology helps to keep this weapon easy to yield with its lightweight yet exceptionally strong material.  If you had one ally to bring to the courts with you, the Ares 175 is a wise choice.

Comments: Great racquet, quite possibly my 'Holy Grail Racquet'. Provides just the right amount of feedback when hitting the ball. Lots of pop off the string bed, large sweet spot, Pretty forgiving on outside the spot.  Tons of power and accuracy. Demo'd most of the other high end racquets, some I didn't like, some I liked, this was the only one I loved. Well worth the money.

Comments: It is an amazing choice for any backcourt player, it´s very powerful, maneuverable and sticky; allows you to control every aspect of the game easier. Even better feel than ProKennex 175g for 2013. I think this is the best middle-weight racquet of 2013.

Comments: Just got the Ares 175, great racquet, excellent feel when hitting the ball, very stiff racquet. Though it seems to be heavy at the beginning it's very powerful when you get used to this stick...will be my choice for 2013.
