    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.

From alpine skis to snowboards, tennis racquets to snorkeling gear, this brand is committed to producing the absolute best equipment in the world.
