I bought this because I was getting back into the game after years of not playing (I'm 25 and played as a kid) and it had very high reviews for a beginner racquet.
Pros: Feather-light! Tacky and comfortable grip. Quality strings.
Cons: Despite it having a large frame, the sweet spot was smaller than I expected.
I quickly outgrew it (only about 6 weeks). It's truly designed for a beginner or someone who has a gentle/slower swing. After I got into the groove of a good swing and started hitting with some force, the ball soars past the baseline and is a little hard to to control (it doesn't have a great feel). My instructor suggested I upgrade to a "player's" racquet after only six weeks and after I did, things went a lot better.
But, like I said if you are truly a beginner and don't plan on hitting balls with much force, its really great.
I have more control and accuracy over the other I got on a trade. Great feel since I have large hands and very strong wrists could not ask for anything better, many thanks .
Love this racquet! Have been using this frame for 5+ years. I am a solid 4.0 male doubles player. This racquet is super light and manuverable but still packs a punch on volleys and overheads. Lets hope Head keeps producing this solid frame for many years.
I also own a S12, but I love the S6 as well. S6 is slightly heavier and the flare design string pattern different from the S12. Regardless, I love them both.
I bought this same racquet perhaps 10 years ago and have been using it ever since. I figured it was time for a new one. The new version of it is a real bargain and has the same beautiful design and feather-light body. I've been playing tennis for over 40 years and have purchased some absurdly expensive racquets. This is my go-to racquet. It's a great value.
