I got the Head MicroGel MG5 for my husband (age 49 hasn't played tennis since 1978)
He is a football player, with a RT.Crushed rotater cuff,(your shoulder) and his (playing hand) so he can not "follow through" with his swing...so he has short but VERY powerful swings. The info on this racquet says f... Read More

    I got the Head MicroGel MG5 for my husband (age 49 hasn't played tennis since 1978)
    He is a football player, with a RT.Crushed rotater cuff,(your shoulder) and his (playing hand) so he can not "follow through" with his swing...so he has short but VERY powerful swings. The info on this racquet says for short, powerful swings... so perfect! And I mean POWER...probably in the 110mph balls, without any effort, for real! He started playing tennis on a cheapy racquet, newer design, but off brand.. and I knew a few more days of that and he'd start complaining of pain and not want to keep going with me.... So I had to act fast! I got the Head MicroGel MG5 for him and the MG2 for me. He tried the MG2 and for him, liked the MG5 better. He said the MG2 was too light, although the MG5 is 1 oz less, I think its b-cuz of the design for hitting, the MG5 is heavier on the head vs the MG2. I played with both, breifly, and I like them equally. I noticed he was hitting better, and had more control...STILL 110mph balls...but they were not going out of the park, like he normally hits. Besides, it matches his F150 HARLEY DAVIDSON Truck! I'm happy with the purchase, and think it just baught me a tennis partner, so thank you Head! The MG2 is 8.6oz Unstrung... the MG5 is 8.5oz Unstrung

    great racquet, very light, accurate description of size. If you are a "power" not a "contact" hitter this thing will really show any inaccuracies in aiming.

    • Answer The most commonly used method for finding your exact grip size is as follows: On your dominant hand, note that your palm has three main creases. Hold your hand flat, with the fingers alongside one another. Measure from the middle crease of your palm, up the line between your middle and ring fingers, to a point equal to the height of the tip of your ring finger. For most women, this measurement will fall between 4 1/8" and 4 3/8", for most men between 4 3/8" and 4 5/8". Juniors will usually measure less than 4".|Generally, if you're between eighths when you measure and you're not growing, you'll be better off going with the smaller grip, as a slightly small grip can be fattened up by 1/16" easily with an overwrap, whereas a too-large grip would have to be shaved down at a pro shop, and some racquets can't be shaved down.
