This racquet is an excellent choice for a wide range of players. It is very affordable for a racquet that has a good balance of power and feel. I love it for every phase of my game, and it is very lightweight. It performs well for serves, volleys, topspin shots and sliced shots. It helped me start playing again after a long break from tennis. Thanks for an excellent product.
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.
