Is there any such racquet of that name? A coach at my club mentioned it today as an alternative to the Head Liquidmetal Firepro.:???:

To find racquets similar to the Fire Pro, go to racquetfinder.com; type in Fire for Model; type in HEAD for manufacturer; unclick the 'current models' box; click search.

When the Fire Pro comes up, click on 'Similar Racquets' and you should see a slew of racquets with somewhat similar characteristics. Recommend demo and don't take the site's word for it.

Ah, yes, I did remember this right. The Fire rackets were around 10oz, but the Fire PRO was a 12 oz racket. The Monster would be like the regular Fire. The coach is thinking of the regular Fire.
Becker Delta Core Legend and Melbourne show up at 18 main string rackets similar to it on the RacketFinder.

You are thinking of the Ti. Fire Pro Edition. The op is talking about the Liquidmetal Fire Pro.
