View Full Version : Head Swing Styles

10-14-2006, 10:56 AM
What exactly do the different swing style ratings mean? I have a Head iRadical MP with an L4 and an L5--what's the difference? As an intermediate player, will I notice a difference?

I have tried looking up on the Internet a description of the various swing styles from L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, L6, etc., but I have not been able to find an answer.

I would appreciate any descriptions if you know. Thanks.

Have a look at www.head.com

When you click on tennis>racquets you will see a swing style overview.

L4, L5 are described as "long, fast swing", L5 being a longer swing style than L4

I also like www.**********.com select racquets and there is a useful section on "How to choose a tennis racquet"
