    Does anyone know anything about this racquet? It looks like a 102 head size. I found 2 of these at a close out store. The weight feels nice and standard length. But can't seem to find out anymore info on them anywhere. They were cheap to buy but seem very solid to play with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I think the Head 5000 series of frames were SMU's(made for the recreational market) for places like SA and other big box sporting goods stores. The Prince Force 3 series is similar. From what I've seen these are decent frames sans all of the gimmickry that some of the more expensive racquets have on them.

    yes, i own 1

    i let my friends use it when they go out n play or when i need a racquet to throw.

    its SOLID. wont break and is as heavy as a prestige. i like it though, not bad for a recreational cheap POS racquet

    The Ti.Carbon 5000, 5001 and 5003 are essentially a 102 squin Ti.Radical -- for whatever reason they decided to make these a recreational racquet. They're quite well made, and especially if you put good strings and grips on them will hold up as a performance racquet.
