HEAD Introduces NEW CrossBow Racquet Due Out in November

After overwhelming success of the CrossBow Racquets launched in May, HEAD Penn Racquet Sports announces a new addition to the CrossBow line. The Crossbow 4, which will be available in November, offers players the perfect blend of power and control.

CrossBow Technology features the world's first and only dynamic bridge racquet construction. Power loaded for players with shorter more compact swings, CrossBow Technology features a bridge suspended from the frame that moves independently, allowing the racquet to store energy in both the stringbed and the bridge. The two-piece design acts like a spring or bow that is loaded during ball impact and is released as the ball accelerates off the stringbed for maximum power. CrossBow also uses 10 main strings though the bridge, offering a larger sweetspot than is found on conventional fixed-bridge racquets.

"We've had tremendous success with the Crossbow 10 and Crossbow 6, and the Airflow line has been very popular for us as well," said Roger Petersman, Senior Business Manager of Tennis Racquets for HEAD Penn Racquet Sports. "We are really excited to bring in the new CrossBow 4 Racquet which offers players both power and control."

Crossbow 4: The perfect blend of power and control. Ideal for players with a more moderate swing style.

Junior Tennis Racquets: Prince Ozone Tour Jr

prince-ozone-tour-jr-26-junior-tennis-racquet.jpg
The Ozone Tour 26 Junior provides great racquet feel, control and spin potential while utilizing a Carbon Wave Matrix™ construction for strength, stability and more control. Ideal for a junior player that is looking for a racquet that is lightweight, powerful and has a big sweetspot. Recommended for a 10-12 year old that has some tennis experience. The grip size is 0, which is perfect for this age group.

Ozone Technology: Ozone racquets feature O³ engineering and are created through a one step fusion process that utilizes the strongest structure known to man, the arch, creating the frame's O-Ports. These O-Ports at the top, bottom and sides of the racquet head stabilize the racquet, giving you more control on off-center shots.

O-Port: By replacing traditional pin-sized string holes with revolutionary giant O-Ports, a super aerodynamic frame has been created with a more responsive stringbed. This increases the sweet spot by 54%, creating a Sweet Zone, which means you hit your best shots more often. What's truly impressive is that the Prince engineers are able to do this all without enlarging the racquet head, increasing its length, or adding weight! So it's easy to maneuver and quicker through the air.
