The Head LEGEND, of course!

One of my all-time favorite Head classics!


Head Legend Specs:
Length: 26.5/27.5 (small collar/large collar)
String pattern: 16x21 (anyone know for sure? I only strung the Legend shown with the ProSupex Blue Gear mains)
Material: 100% graphite (another unknown)
Weight: 12.6 oz. (strung)
Balance: 3-6 pts. HL (strung)
Beam: 16mm

Does anyone knows the story behind the 2 different lengths?

The two legends above with the larger collars are both 27.5" long whereas the other 3 with the smaller collar are 26.5" long.

In addition, the full padded cover for the large-collared Legend is 1" longer than the other 2 covers (came with the small-collared Legends). Therefore, it was intentionally manufactured that length.

Conducting some research... I notice on the SP String Patterns there is listed a Head Legend (WB - widebody?) and Head Legend XL - both 16x19 patterns. I assumed these were later iterations of the recycled Legend name that have nothing to do with the original snowshoe racquet shown above.

wow, I am a huge fan of these, been after one 4 ages!!! MUST>>>HAVE>>>ONE!!!!!!!...my collector friends also joke about the wilson legacy, the wood boron one with a plastic throat...yes they are both odd, unique, silly frames....but theres something seriously magical about them....and as for collectors who collect stuff like this for aethetic and historic purposes....your collection is an art, a sign of your rich life...I envy you and understand your collective artistry...Virginia's collection comes to mind....but these racquets are something else, a rare level of museum-worthy whimsical brilliance....apparently spin potential was something for sissies when these were created for leveling tennis balls instead of brushing against them gingerly!!!!

These are really interesting - when did they come out?

Curiously, they aren't mentioned in Kuebler's book.

I love the Wilson Legacy - I was lucky enough to pick one up that's never seen a court. The beautiful leather grip has "Demonstration" engraved on it, but obviously it was just used for show. :)

A friend's father bought one in about 1981-82... I recall thinking it was the coolest thing on the planet!

I don't think there were too many graphite 'snowshoe' racquets produced.

The AMF Head Specter was another one.

Here's the Specter:

Not even close to a Director! Strangely enough, the thing is a total spinmonster. Perhaps because of the weight, balance and super long main strings.

It's a completely different experience playing with one.

Virginia, we need to see Wilson Legacy and sting pics pls!!! What does the side of the Head Specter and Legend look like??? The "Specter" is pure genius. Besides a badass retro name, the bright colors outline the elongated hoop. I love the Head Legend with the collarless grip...what is the reccomended tension on these snowshoes? I'm guessing 60+.....???????
THESE ARE CURRENT STATS:
Collarless Head Legend 26.5 (probably makes tennis feel like racquetball! wish I could try one)
Head Legend With Collar 27.5 ( "a bit bigger than usual", then again Plasma hears that all the time... )
Head Spectr 28.5 (crazy, looks capable of leveling balls accurately)

certified "cult" status, an absolute Legend...

Bud

Interesting... see my orifinal post concerning the lengths. The Legend came in two distinct lengths... 26.5" and 27.5"

BTW, if you ever decide to sell your Specter, let me know! :)

Based on your pic... all 5 of mine are strung incorrectly. It appears the raquet is supposed to be 16x20 :shock:

Of mine...
(2) are strung at 16x23
(2) are strung at 16x22
(1) is strung at 16x21

Does anyone else see that from VSB's posted pic?

I'd REALLY dislike trying to locate grommets for these!

The (Tournament) Top Graphit and Royal Carbon looks like it is standard head size about 65 while the (All Around) Comfort and Classic Mid is a mid about 80. HEAD did not come out with the 90sq.inch/600cm2 headsize until the fall of 1985 with the Graphite Pro, (Technically a 1986 model) Pro Series line of racquets. But would I like to have a few of those choice racquets.

02-10-2009, 10:04 PM
the reinforced throat pieces on those look capable of stability and dampening...I've seriously hit with well over a hundred models, the ones which were just a little chunky were the most friendly and natural. A true player like me might even take out two chunky old models on any given day, they hit that good. Once you learn how to move the weight it's effortless and powerful, I think they're sweet...

Just to let you know my Specter is strung 16x20, which looks correct. It is hardly used in Near Mint condition with original grip, but unfortunately I don't have the original cover for it. I have remeasured length and it is actually 28.2" long to be exact.

It is a really great looking racquet, it is strung too loose to hit with I think at the moment. Oh and not looking to sell it at the moment, but if I do, Bud you can definitely have it!!

1. Please recommend a good quality cheap digital camera. Will obviously need to take close up pics of racquets:)

2. How do I get the images from the digital camera onto my PC?

3. How do I get the photos from my PC into the posts on this forum?

Going to need some detailed answers please. And will then post lots of photos of my 500+ Racquet collection !!!

Suppose up to $200 at a guess. Will need ease of use, good quality close-ups, good connectivity/memory and will need to be portable without one of those huge lenses. A camera recommendation would help (certainly time wise anyway).

The main help am going to need is points 2 and 3.

Thanks again in advance for help here, and I can then start posting lots of quality photos of my many racquets!!

I'm not sure about the latest cameras, but normally there are two ways of getting photos onto your computer.

1) The camera will have some sort of card - XD or MsDuo, or some form of memory stick (storage device). It can be removed from the camera and inserted into a card reader on the computer (most computers have them as standard). When you put the card in the slot, the computer will then automatically transfer the images to a folder on the computer and you can then access and view them from there.

2) Alternatively, you can connect the camera to one of the USB ports on the computer via a small cable and once again, the images will be transferred across automatically.

Once you have the images on the computer, go to http://www.tinypic.com where you will find some reasonably clear instructions on what to do.

Basically, the idea is to browse your computer to find the image you want, upload it to tinypic and then copy/paste the special link they give you there into the message box here, when you write your message. I've posted some instructions elsewhere (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showpost.php?p=3031022&postcount=42), which describe this in a little more detail.

Hope that helps. Let us us know if you're stuck and someone will help you. :)

Memories... A Sting of this type was actually my very first tennis racket. My, how time flies! And yes, I did endure odd remarks daily from my youthful peers about my "snowshoe." Within a few months I had improved to the point where I switched to a brand new Head Graphite Vector, then a Kneissl White Star Pro Masters, then rankings and free Kneissls...

Yeah... you can buy a USB card reader... remove the card from the camera and place it into the card reader...

or directly hook your camera to the USB port. The software bundled with the camera should then take care of the rest.

I'd suggest a Canon with image stabilization (IS) if you can find a decent one for around $200.

There are a number of camera review sites online you may want to check out.

http://www.dpreview.com/

http://www.steves-digicams.com/

Look for cameras that lie on the right side of the image below or along the bottom. Those have image stabilization (IS) and use widely available SD (secure digital) cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific pocket camera, March 9, 2008
By Julie Neal "The Complete Walt Disney World" (Sanibel Island, Fla.) - See all my reviews
(TOP 50 REVIEWER) (REAL NAME)
As a travel writer I spend a lot of time at Walt Disney World, and Canon PowerShot Digital Elphs are the most common cameras I see. Families seem to love them, because they're so easy to carry and operate. About the size of a deck of playing cards, each of these "pocket cameras" really do slip right into a pants pocket, and their rectangular designs make them easy to grip. Best of all, they all take good photos. (How do I know? Because I've actually gotten to use every one of these models. Nearly every day guests ask me to take photos of them with their own cameras, which most often are Canon PowerShot Digital Elphs.)

Here's my breakdown of the ten bestselling Digital Elph models. Any of the first six are superb choices:

1ST PLACE: SD1100 IS (The camera on this page)
An update to the SD1000 (see below), this 2008 8MP beauty adds image stabilization, a slightly longer zoom (38-114 mm), another MP of photo size and a small indent on the right side for a better grip. Plus it comes in colors! My daughter has a blue one and uses it every single day. During school days the image stabilization made a real difference in her on-the-bus shots. With that heavy of use hers has gotten scratched up a bit, but the marks are small and hardly noticeable.

2ND PLACE: SD870 IS
The ELPH to buy if you want a wide-angle lens. Slightly thicker than the SD1100 IS, this 8MP model doesn't have an optical viewfinder which makes it tough to use in bright sunlight, otherwise there's little not to love. My husband uses one as a comp camera, to compose shots for the travel guide "The Complete Guide to Walt Disney World."

3RD PLACE: SD770 IS
Just released in May, this 10 MP model is, in a way, an update of the SD1100 IS (see above). I rate it lower because it has a plastic body and doesn't come in colors. On the other hand, it has a longer battery life than the 1100 and features an improved LCD screen that is very easy to view. As for photo quality, I can't tell the difference.

4TH PLACE: SD950 IS
There's a lot to like in this 12.1 MP camera. First off, it's gorgeous. The body, though a little thick, is titanium. An upgrade to the SD850 IS (see below), it has a 3.7x zoom lens and adds manual controls as well as the ability to stitch together panoramic images. The only reason I don't rate it higher is the price.

5TH PLACE: SD890 IS
Want a long zoom lens? Here's your baby, a 10 MP model with a 5x zoom. Also has the new bright LCD screen and all the other 2008 Canon goodies. The most expensive Canon PowerShot ELPH.

6TH PLACE: SD790 IS
With the same 10 MP image sensor and 3x zoom lens as the SD770 IS, this new model stands out only for its larger 3-inch LCD display and, as a result, lack of optical viewfinder. The rear controls are different, too, with a flatter design that uses fewer buttons.

7TH PLACE: SD1000
In my opinion there's no reason to buy this 7.1 MP model. Released in 2007, it's been replaced by the SD1100 IS (see above). The SD1000 is a fine camera but it doesn't have image stabilization, a key feature of the 2008 lineup.

8TH PLACE: SD850 IS
The ancestor to the SD890 IS, this 8 MP Elph combines a 4x zoom and 8 MP photo size with an image stabilizer. Every button, dial and switch has a quality feel. Slighter larger than the other models here, it is a little tougher to pop in and out of your pocket, but if you have larger hands it may be just what you are looking for.

9TH PLACE: SD800 IS
This 7.1 MP predecessor to the 870 doesn't focus well at its edges when set at its widest angle. Still, it's good training for someone who wants to compose like a pro.

10TH PLACE: SD750
The 2007 PowerShot flagship offers a light meter that adjusts for facial brightness, 17 shooting modes, some first-rate movie features and red-eye correction -- features that were innovative a year ago but are common in Canon's 2008 models. No image stabilization; no optical viewfinder.

Thanks very much for the info:)

This is enough to get me started, so by monday hopefully will be posting some nice racquet photos. Will be starting with my Head Specter.

If I get any problems, may well ask for some more help, and Bud what do you use to get photos from your PC to post on here? Just wondering as the photos are always clear, well sized etc!

Anyway, thanks !!

How was the Sting, RW?
In 1981, I expressed an interest to learn tennis at age 11, and for my 12th birthday, my Mom bought me a Wilson Chris Evert Rally aluminum, technically my first racket. This was as good as any racket you could have put in the hands of a beginner (not too heavy, decent grip, has strings, etc.), but the problem with it was no virile preppy 12-year-old male in northern California could show his face amongst his peers with an Ice Princess Autograph. So I immediately took a wad of birthday cash to the local Gemco and plunked down for a rad lookin' Sting aluminum. Of course, I had no idea what I was doing, but at the time I reckoned a Battlestar Galactica-looking tennis racket was way better than a Barbie racket.

So, how'd it play? Well, I hit with it at least three hours a day against a wall in my backyard (I had a perfect ad hoc half court), three hours or more a day, for roughly a year, back in 1982... a long time ago. Watching as many matches on TV as was possible and reading all the classic How To books from the local library, I figured out how to hit flat, slice, and top off the forehand and slice and flat off the backhand wing. Serves too. The Sting was a good enough aluminum frame; it seemed to have nice power (undoubtedly thanks to those wild, long l-o-n-g l--o--n--g mains), and good manoeuverability (compared to something like a Prince Classic, say). It had a classic-style dense stringbed, so hitting flat balls came easy and it had good control. The black leather grip was cheap, though, and wore out quickly, and the two-piece grip pallet started squeaking and feeling loose. Wear and tear, the "snowshoe" jabs from peers, and the desire for a prestigious graphite composite (kid status symbol) saw me lose interest in it before 1982 was out. I scraped up some cash and bought a cool looking Donnay Horizon Mid at the local Big 5 store, which turned out to be a triumph of style over substance - it was a low end, midsized wood-graphite comp that literally went "Flop" every time you hit a ball. I soon smashed that one to smithereens in a focused fit of pubescent rage one day while on court, went into Allowance debt and got a Head Graphite Vector from a real tennis shop, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Head LEGEND, of course!

One of my all-time favorite Head classics!


Head Legend Specs:
Length: 26.5/27.5 (small collar/large collar)
String pattern: 16x21 (anyone know for sure? I only strung the Legend shown with the ProSupex Blue Gear mains)
Material: 100% graphite (another unknown)
Weight: 12.6 oz. (strung)
Balance: 3-6 pts. HL (strung)
Beam: 16mm

Does anyone knows the story behind the 2 different lengths?

The two legends above with the larger collars are both 27.5" long whereas the other 3 with the smaller collar are 26.5" long.

In addition, the full padded cover for the large-collared Legend is 1" longer than the other 2 covers (came with the small-collared Legends). Therefore, it was intentionally manufactured that length.

Conducting some research... I notice on the SP String Patterns there is listed a Head Legend (WB - widebody?) and Head Legend XL - both 16x19 patterns. I assumed these were later iterations of the recycled Legend name that have nothing to do with the original snowshoe racquet shown above.

I saw this racquet at Goodwill in Orange County, CA for $3.00 but I didn't buy it but instead I bought Prokennex black ace for $5.00. I went back the next day to look for it (Legend) and it was gone. Not meant to be I guess.

Yeah... when you see a classic (especially for 3 bucks!)... grab it! :)
