The MicroGel 12 is a light, powerful racquet for the beginner to intermediate player with a short stroke game. It also is quite head heavy so it has good weight behind your swing. It has a humongous sweet spot and excellent control for a racquet with this power.

The MicroGel material is infused through the hoop. This distributes shock around the frame, eliminating vibration and making this a very comfortable racquet to play with.

MicroGEL Technology: MicroGEL is a revolutionary silicone based material with the lowest density of any solid known on the planet. This incredible "Super Material" weighs only about 3mg per cubic centimeter, but is able to support up to 4,000 times it's own weight. HEAD has combined MicroGEL with stiff and strong carbon composite fibers to create a racquet with incredible responsive qualities. On ball impact, HEAD MicroGEL uniformly distributes the impact load around the frame circumference providing a rock solid feel and unique touch that has to be experienced to be believed.

Remember Last Year's Nadal/Federer Wimbledon Final

51P54ndPPFL._SS500_.jpg
There's no Nadal this year, unfortunately, but Federer's still in the mix and so are a host of other great players - not the least of which is Andy Murray.

Not that any of us will have a lot of free time not taken up by live Wimbledon action, but if you want to relive what many (including me) believe to be the best match ever, last year's Nadal/Federer final here are two options.
