The American sporting goods manufacturer HEAD was founded in the late 1940s by flight engineer Howard Head. Initially producing skiing equipment, the company is now located in Austria and owns the well-known sports brands Tyrolia and Penn. Apart from selling top-quality tennis rackets, HEAD is still one of the largest manufacturers of skiing gear.
In the 1970s, the company branched out and began developing tennis rackets. The great Arthur Ashe helped the brand more recognition in the world of tennis when he played with the silver-coloured “Arthur Ashe Competition” racket. In 1975, he won the title at Wimbledon with a HEAD “Arthur Ashe Competition 2” in his hands.
For the development of this racket, HEAD’s engineers were in the fortunate position to rely on their know-how gained from decades of producing skiing equipment. Roughly twenty years, they had been experimenting with materials glued together in several layers. That way, the HEAD Arthur Ashe became one of the first so-called “composite rackets” that were significantly more robust than the wooden rackets usually used until then. Around the turn of the millennium, the “Titanium” series was a technological quantum leap for HEAD, boosting racket sales.
Similar to many other tennis racket brands, some model series of the manufacturer have prevailed. The legendary “Radical” series––played by André Agassi among others––is still to this day part of HEAD’s product range available in our shop. Other famous racket series are HEAD “Prestige” and “Touch“. The tennis brand offers a wide range of racket models to meet the demands of every type of tennis player.
Each racket model comes in various versions with sometimes quite notable differences. However, choosing the right strings for your racket is vital. Being one of the biggest string manufacturers in the market, HEAD provides the right strings for each of its rackets to bring out the best in them. You can find a large variety of HEAD tennis strings in our online shop as well. And if you need some help with choosing, you can always consult the string advisor on our website.
As with any other racket manufacturer, checking out the individual specifications of each HEAD racket is definitely worth the effort. At first glance, the many different variants of each racket model may seem a little bit confusing, but when you compare the details, you will quickly get a clearer picture. Head size, weight, and grip size are among the essential aspects of a tennis racket. It is generally recommended for beginners and occasional players to use a racket that weighs around 300 grams or less.
Regarding head size, the rule is: the smaller your striking surface, the more accurate your strokes have to be. But if they are, you can fully enjoy the excellent combination of high speed and optimal control. Rackets with a larger hitting surface, on the other hand, are more comfortable to play, and they forgive more mistakes. To find out your optimal grip size, it is best to talk to your coach at the club: he might be able to help you find out the perfect grip size by putting a few different rackets in your hand.
If you want to refine your search, there are five different categories of HEAD tennis rackets to choose from in our online shop. Allround rackets, for example, offer a good balance between comfort and speed. Comfort rackets offer even more pleasant and easy playing characteristics. Their wider frame allows for a gentler swing to protect the arm while providing plenty of speed. Tour rackets, on the other hand, are best suited for more experienced players with a relatively clean technique. Under junior rackets, you will find lots of quality HEAD rackets for kids. And if you are looking for a good bargain, there is plenty of choice among our used rackets.
HEAD offers more than just brilliant tennis rackets. You can also find top-quality tennis clothing with the HEAD logo, as well as comfortable tennis shoes and excellent tennis balls. This way, you can stay loyal to your favourite tennis brand with all your gear, and you might also find it easier to add to it because you are already familiar with the sizes and fits.
