So I went with my father to buy an early birthday present from the local sports equipment store last night. Up until now I've been using a Prince stick with a pretty large head size (103 sq in) so wanted to find something similar.
The guy showed me a $200 Head racquet with a large head size like I'm accustomed to, so my Dad basically pressured me just to take it on the spot without any research because he was buying and won't get a chance to go back before my birthday. I reluctantly obliged thinking that the price seemed mid-range and the head size was good for me. We got to the front desk and it was on sale for $99, so we thought it was a steal.
When I got home I did some research and can barely find it anywhere, let alone on the Head website, but where I did see it, the price was nowhere near $200. Now I'm thinking it's a cheap recreational racquet and regretting the purchase. I wish I'd just gone with something safe like a Babolat Pure Drive.
Does anyone know anything about it? It's called the Head Nano Ti. Sonic
. Is there any chance it's a re-badged model with a different name in the American market?
