Does any other pro other than Djokovic use a Head Speed?

Can't work out who the speed line appeals to? They have low sw to get speed throught the air, but they are not powerful enough make this a great asset on the court. They do have a big, wide head that may be liked, but not widely.

There a post in the racquets section that I just made regading their (lack of) popularity. The general population seems to favor the "racquets" used by the top pros but for some reason the Speeds don't really seem to have really caught on too well. I wonder why that is. The PDR, APDS & Wilson 90s all have a huge following assumably in part based on who uses them.

The store I work in can't keep the head speed frames in stock. Same goes for other stores in our area.

Some of head speed rackets do have torsional stability problems
especially for high power balls

djoko plays custom pj not the one they sell everywhere.
According to vsbabolat who knows his stuff, Joker uses frame that is from the same mold that produced the Ti.Radical & i.Radical frames but they are made with his own custom layup. That frame is then painted to look like the IG Speed.

Just curious what kinds of players are you seeing buy these? Younger players who just want to play with that Joker looks to be using or are there some establised players actually using them as well?

No particular group of players. From beginner to college level of players are buying them.
