    HEAD Boom Official Thread

    I think this looks great and plan to get at least a couple, all the specs look really interesting and the design looks great with the black & teal/green. Lets hear your thoughts, pre-release and after getting one (or more)!

    New Ezones??

    Sorry if this has been asked before elsewhere, But i've had an email from a UK retailer offering the current Ezones on sale. No 98 but all the others. Usually this means the next one is imminent. Anyone know any details please? What's the usual lifecycle of a range, about 2yrs isn't it and the...

    New Yonex VCore Pro Line ??

    I'm sure I saw some pictures of the new VCore Pro frames, might just be a paintjob. Can't find them again to describe accurately but I think they were two-tone colouring, half similar green to the current models, the other half I can't remember. Anyone have pics to share (if allowed)??

    Zverev & Adidas Stycon

    Just finished watching Zverev play at the French and noticed his footwear. He wasn't wearing the Stycon and can't say I'm that surprised. They're still available for sale but as far as pros using them, I reckon the Stycon range has died a death and will probably be discontinued soon.

    Andrew Harris Head Racquet??

    Hi, anyone know what Andrew Harris was using in his match against Dimitrov? Had a Head stencil on the strings but frame was blacked out, if I had to guess maybe was a Prestige. Anyone know? Thanks

    HELP!! Wilson Blade Pro Stock Experts, ID Please!

    Hi all, I've acquired this Wilson Blade v6, 16/19 which ive been told is pro stock and it has glossy paint when it says Countervail on the frame which would mean it should be matte. There is foam in one side of the handle, no lead that i can see and the code looks like EAX on the buttcap, but i...

    This String/Stringbed Is For Life, Not Just For Christmas .....

    If you could use just one string/hybrid setup in every frame for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? I'm currently loving a full bed of HyperG at about 52lbs, I have this in about 3 different sticks (Textreme Tour 95, Dunlop Revelation 200G and Yonex AI98). More recently have gone...

    Help! Want To Know Dunlop Racquet Name From 1990s

    Hi, Hope someone can help. My friend & I were trying to remember the name of the range of racquets that Dunlop did in the 1990s, that had the small black 'nodules' on the side of the throat. I seem to remember there were 3 frames, one gold in colour, one reddish/bergundy and one purple. There...

    New Blade Video

    I've just watched a video with the new design of the Blade. Grey accents at 3 & 9, very Clash inspired, with the green across the top headguard. Guessing this is how Wilson will be redesigning all their lines. I don;t know if I'm allowed to link the vid, or even find it as not on YT. You're all...

    Gravity . . . .

    Zverev still using the prototype paintjob on his GravitySpeed. He's got a massive sweet spot apparently. Loves kittens & children.

    New Ezone Range Due Soon??

    I only ask as on TW Europe they are selling the current green model at a sale price. This is usually the sign that new models are due to be released. Anyone confirm please? What's the 'normal' life-cycle of a frame/design, 2yrs? 3? I can't remember how long the Ezone has been around after...

    Murray Retirement Imminent?? And will he let me have even just one of his PT57s???

    It's on the cards isn't it? If I had to guess, he'll see how this year goes with regards the Slams but call it a day at the end of this year. I really can't see him carrying on if his hips are as broken & painful as mentioned. Better to bow out with head held high than risk doing anything more...

    Bahrami is using an MXG . . . . .

    Is that irony? He's the clown of the tennis court and so uses the biggest joke to hit tennis in decades. Maybe it's a prop. He'll switch back to the Extreme after a game or two.

    Barricade 2018

    I like what they've done with the new material/design going over the toes, but I can't stand that they've kept the ridiculous looking plasticy, triangular pattern on the side. Otherwise, it would be a case of 'take my money'. But, will stick with my Asics Gel Res & Yonex Eclipsion for at least...

    Head Racket Identification - Help Please!!

    Hi all, I bought this racket off the auction site and would like to know if any of you more knowledgeable people here can help identify it? I doubt it is prostock, or even a PT57a, but I'm no expert when it comes to telling the difference between the Head frames and all the various codes that go...

    Djokovic (Possible) New Stick . . . . ??

    Just watching the Novak match and he's clearly struggling with his elbow problem which hasn't sorted itself from last year, and it got me thinking, would Head now re-design a 'new' racket for him? We all know all the pros have a paint-jobbed something-or-other, but would they make something more...

    No Butt Cap Trap Door But I Want To Add Weight - HELP!

    Hi, I recently bought off you-know-where a Head Lite Tour 630 and it was 299g and very head heavy. To bring it in line with other rackets I have and what I prefer, I replaced the grip with a leather one and added lead underneath. Although this is helped slightly, it is now 310g, I want to add...
