Anyone know what the defacto string is when you buy a racket from Head? I cant figure out what string it is but it is a pearly white and fairly slick.

from your description it might be Head Sonic Pro- which is a poly string.

Depends on the racket. Some of the older rackets like the Liquidmetal Radical you see in stores come prestrung with Head Synthetic Gut. Newer Youtek rackets, if they come prestrung, come with Head Sonic Pro. My local store showed me a Youtek Mojo prestrung with Head Sonic Pro. Why would you sell a racquet prestrung with a full set of poly?

The lower end racquets (Walmart, Target) will come with Head Synthetic Gut 16.

I think the LM Radicals come with Head Synthetic Gut. I'm not sure.

But with the higher ends, some come with Head Sonic Pro. Last time I checked at Sports Authority, they had a MicroGEL Extreme prestrung with Sonic Pro.

its best when they dont come prestrung. thats one way to be 100%sure its authentic when the cardboard is still in tact

Picked up a MG Rad O/S for a player here... prestrung with Head Syn Gut 16. Just cut it out and replaced it with Big Hitter 17

Pearly white and slick sounds like Sonic Pro to me as well.

Pre-Strung rackets from HEAD are strung with PPS 16, unless you request otherwise...
