great feel and accuracy
The Liquidmetal 8 has an amazing feel to it - It is light and I added lead tape to give it more power and it still has a head-light feel to it - With it strung at 58 lbs it has great grip on the ball for topspin serves and is also great for a big flat serve. Playing doubles on Hard-Tru you need a racquet you can whip around quickly and still generate power. The touch on this racquet is just great for lobs and drop volleys and a lot of power can be gererated with big sweeping groundstrokes - just great! - Nothing like the "warclub" feel and momentum of other racquets
Prior to this racket I had been using a basic oversized $20 Modell's racket. I read great reviews on this racket so I thought it would work well.
I'm happy with this racket, but I haven't noticed a huge difference in my performance. I do seem to get consistent shots, but my forehand is no better or worse. My backhand is more consistent. It hasn't been a miracle racket, but it does the job.
very good experience
good product, great price and early delivery. 5 stars.
Head Liquidmetal 8 Tennis Racquet
Have been using it for a month now and am very happy. Light weight and oversized. I did have it re-strung but that was my preference, not a requirement.
Best racquet ever
This racquet is light, but very powerful. I've tried other racquets before, but this one is the best i've ever had.
I bought this racquet at a very reasonable price. However, because it had apparently been in inventory for some time, it needed to be restrung immediately, which I did, at 59 lbs. I think I got good value for my money, and I really like the appearance of the racquet. I had previously bought nothing, but Wilson racquets.
My son love this racquet. He has 2 matches and 3 practices at least each week. He says it is very light and ball control is exceptional.
Head Liquidmetal 8 tennis racquet
Nice light weight oversize racquet. Ive tried many racquets and this works best for me. Also great price for the quality.
Its light weighted and feels powerful. The only down side is that the string only lasted for couple of plays.
I purchased this racquet based on the size, weight and reported performance. Im an above average player so I needed power and control, yet the ability to have more spin. The raquet has performed well thus far but sometimes it feels like it needs additional shock/vibrator absorbtion attachments because it vibrates. Otherwise, I love that its lightweight and easy to manuever.
I was away from tennis for 35 years before I decided to give it another try. This racquet is so light I had to open the cover to see if it was inside! The Liquidmetal 8 has made my return to tennis a real joy and I was surprised how forgiving it is on off-center hits.
This was a pretty good buy for my son who is intermediate. The price was optimal and shipping time was perfect.
I love this racquet. I just started playing tennis and needed a light oversize racquet and this is it. Great power. Not happy with the string because it broke after a month of use.
Liquid metal racquet
Not being a great player at age 70 this was my second Liquidmetal racquet. I tried two other racquets but didnt feel as good. Im very happy with the performance of these products.
Good racquet for beginners. This is my first real racquet, rather than a cheap one from target. The oversize head is great and it is surprisingly light. The only downside to this raquet is that it needs to be strung, even though it is brand new.
Liquidmetal 8 was a great deal
Im a beginner in my mid-50s. I purchased this racquet as a replacement for a $15 beginner toy. It does everything I expected it to do. I have only used it a couple of times but am very pleased. It was well worth the money.
This racket is very easy to handle and control. It has enough power to get critical points and enough control to place the ball where it needs to be. It has a big face so beginners and intermediate players can use this as a good training tool. I would recommend it for people that dont want to spend a ton of money but get a good product for the price
I have played with the LM8 a few times as a backup to my current LM4 racket. They play similar with the LM 8 being a little larger and easier to hit with power. Ground strokes and serving have a little more pop. Both rackets are easy to play with and I am able to switch back and forth without affecting my game. Great rackets at reasonable cost
Head tennis racquet
I really like it. It is not heavy on hands. It is tall and wide. Now, I can controll my hits better. No wonder that Jokovich and Sharapova are using it. Thanks.
As everybody might know, this is a great racquet for beginners and game improvement. Seller was great. Shipping was fast.
I was extremely happy with not only with the product but how Tennis Express went out of their way to help me choose and purchase this item.
I love this racquet. Strong but forgiving. My best games so far have been with this racquet. I am basically a beginner but this racquet elevated my game.
I was only able to use my new Liquid Metal a few times when I had an injury. A visiting friend broke her strings and had to borrow my racquet. Her comment was its a keeper. Looking forward to getting back on the court and playing with it.
I started playing tennis again about a year ago after being away for 20 years. I started with some used Babolats and was improving but I decided to go with the Head Liquidmetal 8. I was hesitant because the specs said for players 2.5 - 4.0 and I was currently a 3.0-3.5. Let me say my shots are stronger and deeper and I am much more confident at the net. I play a lot with 4.5 and 4.5 players and have won 3 matches since getting this racket. My next racket will be the Liquidmetal 4 if I ever outgrow this one!!!
Great price performance
I recently purchased by third LM8. The other two are 3 + years old and holding up very well. I have been playing since the 70s Jack Kramer wood days and Im still playing at 4.5 level. Ill admit Im slower and I only play doubles. I can find no fault with this racket. Volleys, slice, and top spin are exceptional with this racket. Its not that stiff or head heavy, therefor its easy on the elbow. Sting it with 17g Head rip control maybe add some weight and life is sweet.
I LOVE THIS RACQUET , I DO NOT HAVE THE POWER I WOULD LIKE, BUT I HAVE SO MUCH MORE CONTROL I CANT BELIEVE IT. AT THE NET WOW.THE WT OF THE RACQUET IS JUST RIGHT FOR ME,IT FEELS SO GOOD IN MY AND AND WHEN I HIT THE BALL THE RACQUET KEEPS GOING FORWARD.

Head liquidmetal tennis racquet
this was purchased for Christmas for my grandson. a very nice looking racket, but since it is winter with lots of snow here in PA, am unable to give any information...pro or con. Im sure my grandson, Nick 15, is eager to try it out soon as we get some dry courts!!
Tried to submit without checking rating and performance, but the site would not accept without me checking something! will be glad to write another review after the racket is put to use!
As a new tennis player I purchased this racket based on customer and professional reviews. Overall it seems like a well constructed product. Only problem was after about 15 minutes of use 2 strings in the middle of the racket broke. This was very disappointing. Factory strings are junk, hopefully the new strings will allow me to better experience the product.
Head racket purchased is a decent one nothing special , just good tennis racket. For the price definitely is OK.
Excellent place to order Tennis racquet. Website is easy to access and order.
This racket truly is amazing for the price. It is very comfortable to use and can hang with the much more expensive rackets without batting an eye.
Very good racquet for a beginner. Handling, power and control are all excellent. I am very pleased.
They were delivered in a timely manner. I love these racquets. I recommend tennis express to all my tennis friends. I also work at a tennis resort, and tell everyone to go on your web site. Thank you for your continued good service. Margaret Lucia
Liquidmetal 8 Tennis Racquet
I stopped playing 23 years ago but never lost the desire to pick in up again. This racquet was everything the previous customer reviews said about it. The control is wonderful - ground strokes, volleys and serving are much easier than I remember them to be decades ago. I heartily recommend this racquet to novices and pros alike.
Just okay at best
After reading all the reviews I Was really hoping to get a GREAT racquet. Was very disappointed, it is an OKAY racquet, I am comparing it to my old, cheaper head Tis-6. Number one issue strings feel old and loose. Sweet spot seems to be very small and hard to find . Overall feels okay in hand I hope changing strings will help but that is additional 30-50 $. Would not recommend it.
Head Liquidmetal 8
I would consider myself a recreational tennis player, and on any given week I play between three to five days a week. I was satisfied with my racquet, but I am always seeking improvements to my game and stay competitive. After reading an article about racquet performance I considered a change and found that the Head Liquidmetal 8 was highly rated. I searched for the best price, which I found at Tennis Express and ordered the racquet out of pure curiosity.
My tennis partner was on a trip when I ordered the racquet, and hoped that I would have it in time for my next game. A few days later much to my surprise the box was sitting next to my front door, and like a child at Christmas I eagerly opened the box. From the moment I had this racquet in my hand I was amazed at the balance and general feeling of power the racquet had. I immediately took the racquet, a bag of balls, and my dog to the court. I began working on my serves and was astonished at the control, pace, and accuracy.
best for your buck
the only complaints from friends who have tried my racquet is that it has too much power for them. Really - is this a bad thing I recommend it for beginners and intermediates...best racquet buy ever.

Awesome deal awesome service
Im really glad with my purchase the price and the product and the delivery was really great i will buy here in another time
Excellent Racquet, helpful recommendation
I recently purchased the Head Liquidmetal 8 Prestrung Tennis Racquet. I am a beginner when it comes to Tennis and I called the customer services folks and requested recommendation. They took the time to understand my game and suggested a few options for me and this was one of them. I have been using the reacquet and love it.

Fine racquet, but strings are a little loose.

This is a very light racquet and its perfect to improve the serve. All my tennis friends congratulated me about my new racquet.
liquid metal 8 tennis racquet
Very satisfied with racquet. Its light, powerful and keeps great ball control. My game has improved due to this racquet. Great racquet for this price......
Like Custom Fit
The Liquidmetal 8 racquet feels like it was custom built for my game. I have owned many different styles of Head Racquets in the past, but this particular one has power and spin control all in one. A real compliment to my game.
I play tennis occasionally. For quite awhile I have been using other brands of racquets and decided to try this racquet. I have never played better tennis It is so light, the grip is just right and I get a good swing all the time. Less strain on my already strained wrist. I recommend this racquet to everybody.
Liquid metal 8
Wanted a larger head size for doubles with a larger sweet spot. I play 4.0 doubles. Good racket if you want to keep ball in play but dont expect added power. Its for a big swinger like myself and i could put a tremendous amount of spin on it. Sweet spot is not very big and not much response on off center hits. Very light racket. helps with spin on second serve but not much power on flatter first serve.I would recommend for singles not doubles and for those with big loopy swings.
I purchased the Head Liquidmetal 8 about a month ago and I have to say Im very happy with it. Its my first serious racquet and have used it quite a few times already. The weight is perfect and the headsize too. The only reason I havent given it 5 stars is because the strings that the racquet came with, as it was prestrung, make a funny noise sometimes... its a funny noise that I assume it should not make. I had read before that, apparently, the quality of the prestrung racquets is not the best and Im thinking that it might be my case as well. Im curious to know if the noise will persist once I change the strings later on. Overall, Im enjoying it a lot!
IMPROVED MY SERVES
Good overall racquet for the weekend player. Its a bit top heavy compared to my previous racquet, and my service game has improved. Still getting used to the racquet, but for the price, would recommend to any mid-level player.
Nice product at a good price, I would recomend this seller
R Lane Ware
Very good racquet
This is the second and third Head Liquidmetal 8s Ive purchased from Tennis Express. Im in my late sixties now and this racquet has the weight, balance and power for my game that allows a quick serve and solid returns even against faster serves. I bought two because the price was right.
I bought 4 of these based on reviews, and that they were almost 70 off retail price.
Theyre fantastic! They are much lighter than my previous racket, and very easy to play with. They also make an awesome crack sound when hitting the sweet spot. The first time I heard this, I thought I had broken the racket!
I have one minor criticism. With the racket being so light, I have trouble generating a lot of power.
Also, the website states that they come with a cover. Mine didnt, and Tennis Express didnt reply to my e-mail enquiry about the missing covers.
HEAD Liquid metal 8 Tennis Racket
I could not easily find the HEAD Liquid metal 8 tennis racket in the UK. I found Tennis Express on the web and their customer service Olin'!' could not have been more helpful in shipping my rackets from the USA to the UK. The rackets were delivered very quickly and I am enjoying playing with them.
Thanks guys -great service'!'
Love the Raquet!!
Enjoying the play with my new raquet. Totally worth the money. Fully satisfied.
Good quality and selection and great sale price. And quick delivery too......
