Head Liquidmetal 8 Tennis Racquet

Alternate Images

The Head Liquidmetal 8 is the most powerful offering in the Head Liquidmetal line, with a very forgiving sweetspot and significantly lighter weight. More forgiving than any of the other Liquidmetal racquets, the Liquidmetal 8 is geared toward a beginning to intermediate level player with a slow to moderate swing who requires a larger sweetspot. Open string pattern further enhances spin and size of the sweetspot. NoShox handle reduces vibrations by 27% without dampening feel.

Note: This racquet is pre-strung with Head Synthetic Gut 16 at Head's recommended tension of 59 lbs.

    So far this has been a great racquet for my 8 year old. Light enough to handle but head weighted to generate some power. Large head and sweet spot also helps with consistency.

    Not just for beginners -

    This whole better players use smaller racquets idea is bunk, at least for me. The best player I know, a former pro in his 70's, and still strong uses a large racquet. He is amazing at net and can really put some pop on the ball. So, I thought I'd try one of these. I ended up with two and quite happy with this and Solinco hyper g just under mid. The open string pattern on a large head gives good spin and I get a lot more pop on this over my previous 95 to 97 Wilsons. I'm a 3.5 to 4.0 player.

    I’ve been searching for a new racquet for a few months now. Each time I search, I kept finding myself back on the page of the Liquidmetal 8! Finally after much review I decided to purchase this frame. This is perfect for an intermediate player looking to upgrade to a powerful racquet without spending an arm and a leg. With the racquet being top heavy, it was easy to notice the power that came from this racquet. This racquet helped me generate the power I needed to soar past my competition and really take my game to the next level. I was very impressed with the comfort of this racquet and how versatile it seemed to be on the court. Out of the Liquidmetal 4 and the 8 I definitely preferred the 8. I switched out the string for Babolat Xcel at mid tension, which seemed to help me get some more pop on my shots.

    Too light

    Bought this racquet as an extra. It does have pretty good control, but not much plow thru power. Not arm friendly. But overall a descent racquet. I'm a mid 3.0 small frame, need some thing a little more solid feeling to punch back hard serves.

    Could not have been more impressed with the ease of ordering and the user friendly web site. The product was just as explained and arrived one day ahead of schedule. I would encourage everyone to at lease try this store. They were very much a pleasant surprise from the others I have used.

    Good Racquet

    Easy to hit top spin, slice, and volley, but still adjusting serve. Don't feel enough power while serving.

    Excellent intermediate racquet

    I bought the racquet because it was recommended for beginner to intermediate players. I figured it would be a good first racquet. So far, so good.
