Thursday, January 20, 2011 Head Crossbow Tennis Racquets

Head has launched their latest technology to the tennis world, the CrossBow, a power loaded technology that features the world’s first and only dynamic bridge racquet construction. Made for players with shorter, more compact swings, the Head CrossBow Racquet Technology uses a suspended bridge from the racquet frame that moves by itself during ball impact.

The racquet can then store energy in both the string bed and the bridge, kinda like a spring or bow. The stored energy is released as the ball shoots off the stringbed, resulting in awesome power in every shot. Also, on the CrossBow racquets, 10 main strings go through the bridge, making the sweet spot much larger. The new CrossBow tennis racquet line features a re-designed Stabilizer Technology to eliminate racquet vibration for more comfort.

There are five new tennis racquets released featuring the CrossBow Technology: CrossBow 10, CrossBow 6, Airflow CB 3, Airflow CB 5, and Airflow CB 7. Check out quick overviews of each racquet below:
