Here are some photos of my Head - Ti Elite (Comfort Zone):)

I've used this racquet for the last 10 years when playing doubles against really good players indoors on a fast carpet surface. Basically when I want to block the ball back a lot. It's a mid-plus frame and a really powerful racquet, and yet comfortable at the same time!

OK, so I've only used it about 3 times, but whenever I have, I've really enjoyed it, it has huge amounts of power in it, great fun:)

Does anyone know anything about it please?

Whenever I did use this racquet, I was so impressed with it for service and service returns, and also volleys. But for rallying from the baseline it was hopeless as way way to powerful and I'd just hit it too long!

Hence why I've just dug it out for a few indoors doubles matches:)

Really good fun to use as it seems to be extremely powerful, yet easy to control (as long as you don't take a big swing at it). Just feels solid, yet it's quite light, all in all a weird racquet!

I got it well over 10 years ago I think, even though hardly ever used it. Has anyone even seen one before?

hehe... that is hardly a vintage "schtick" hein?

i happen to have one with reversed colors Black with red throat, and also ti-laser, wich is a american market version in pin stripe blue, this last one i have paintojobbed to look like a black\red Tour series form early 90's (bumbllebee style pj)

yes... it's a very weird racket... some strokes it's a scalpel, some others, it's a uncontrolable cannon...

i have not sold mine due to sentimental reasons!

No, but it is very discontinued, well over 10 years ago:)

Have you ever played it?

Interesting!

Yes could do with some lead, as is very light!

Compared to any other modern racquet I've tried, it seems very accurate, apart from being way to powerful obviously:)

I plan to use it again for the occasional doubles match, or if I ever want to hit a tennis ball to the moon:shock:

(It is very powerful)
