Then, are head heavy racquets good?

In general, head-heavy rackets offer higher hitting power but require more control to wield correctly. They’re built to propel the ball at high speed by using large oversized heads, lighter overall weights, and longer and stiffer construction.

Also, should I use a light or heavy tennis racket? Some basic concepts – a heavy racket is more powerful, more stable and transmits less shock than a lighter racket (all other things being equal). A lighter racket is more maneuverable and thus, a player is able to swing it faster.

Beside above, what does head Heavy mean in a tennis racquet?

Head Heavy (HH)

Generally, tennis racquets that are head heavy will provide players with more power. Maneuverability comes from the fact that these racquets tend to be lightweight. As a player swings a head heavy racquet and makes contact with a tennis ball, the extra weight helps provide a greater force on contact.

How do I know if my tennis racket is head heavy?

If most of the weight is concentrated in the handle of the racquet, then the racquet will be described as head-light. Whereas, if more weight is concentrated in the head, it’s called head-heavy. If the distribution is in the middle it’s called even balanced.
