HEAD Trisys series

I have seen HEAD Trisys as low as 150 (or 130?) , and up to 300. From 260 to 300 each model is a unique classic player frame. However starting from 250 and lower, it fell off a cliff. It makes me wonder, the lower the number, more power, less weight, and more tweener?? Which Trisys model comes out first, the lower number, or the higher number? was it true that for that short period of time, HEAD is trying to fit/market/assign all of their rackets with a Trisys model number?

They were competing with the Wilson's si (swing index) and the Prince's power level. All tried to assign a number to a player's desired power level.

The 300 and the 280, the Prestige (mid) and the Pro Tour 280/630 (mid-plus) are two of the best player's rackets ever IMHO. The rest of the series was aimed at 2.5 to 3.5 players who want their rackets to be powerful.

In Head's case, the higher the number the lower the power. In Wilson's case, the lower the number, the higher the power. I think Prince had lower number, lower power.

I just found a 280 for $6.99 yesterday at Goodwill. If I don't like it will sell.
Oh trust me, you're going to hate it, just box it up and I'll take that cheap stick off you for $20...since I feel bad for you. Really, I mean don't even hit with it, you'll hate it, just send it my way!:twisted:

260 is the Radical Tour black/yellow
270 mid and midplus is the Graphite Tour 600 and Graphite Tour 660
no 290.
yeah exactly.
270 Mid was one of my favorite sticks, feels special to me as it was my first player racket. In stock form it is slightly lighter than PC600, I replaced its synthetic grip with leather and it feels as good as my PC600s, and slightly more powerful.

Yes....below those numbers you started to get into the Head widebodies...which weren't particularly popular I believe - (not UNPOPULAR....but around here, not as popular as Prince/Wilson's early widebodies).

Most of those racquets were just renamed pre-existing Head's that were assigned numbers.....like the Prestige....I believe the 280 was one of the few that was "new". The lower ones tended to be rackets like the Head Genesis, Atlantis, Ventoris, etc.....
