Favourite Head Line of all time?

Just wondering what people's fave Head "iterations" have been over the years. Eg. i, Microgel, Graphen, Liquidmetal...etc?

I like Intelligence. Pros seemed to actually use those racquets as opposed to all the pjs you see from the other lines.

I love the i.prestige That one is a keeper.

Prestige 300, Pro Tour 280, and Radical 260 (yellow and black bumblebee) line.
Hated the intelligence and all subsequent until the Microgel which are very good.

... two precisely drilled holes will bring you the ultimate in ball-cupping experience ... and a technology pioneered and dropped by Dunlop.

But one of the few technologies invented by Head that did not involve a space age material as found on the Planet Krypton for extra strength with low weight.

Co-sign. My all-time favorite Head stick. My wife still plays the OS that she took out of my stash.

You guys might not like the FlexPoint (I know I don't) but I can think of one very good player (5.5 former D1 stud from my area) that loves is FlexPoint Mid. He has something like 8 or 9 that he treats like his baby and refuses to switch from. It just goes to show how different some peoples taste is.

I love seeing diehards like the guy you're talking about. A guy who played in the first singles line of my USTA league team used some old, oversized Prince frame. It wasn't the POG, but some mid-1990s model. I once asked him which model he was using and he couldn't even tell me without reading the name on the throat. He had a 4 or 5 of them, all strung with gold synthetic gut. Though members of the team offered him newer racquets to demo, he never took them up on it. Hardly ever lost a match.

I love the Ti Classic and have actually been trying to get my hands on another 4 3/8 one.

I have a Youtek Prestige Pro that I don't like much, and the racquet just has a "hollow" feel on contact compared to my Ti Classic. I believe this to be a result of the newer material used for the frame, but maybe I am underestimating the effect of the different (16x19) string pattern.

Wish I could afford a PT630 so I could see how to it compares to my childhood Ti Classic.

Guess I'm among the few that liked some of the Liquidmetal frames (as well as the i.Prestige and i.Radical). The flexpoint overall was definitely the least likeable line (and that's coming from someone who briefly played w/ the FXP Radical Tour), although the Graphenes aren't that far behind on the don't like list.

I understand it completely. If you're a solid player, who's spent plenty of time with a certain frame, why switch from it? Stick with what works. If they aren't broken there isn't really a need to find something else.

Microgel Prestige Mid for me, preferred it over the Midplus version and even a PT280. Though the PT280 had a different feel and flex the Mid was easier to play. I've tried various Pro Stocks,old Radicals and still prefer the Mid.
