          This was a replacement for a pair of Head I.S10 racquets that I used for a decade. The feel and weight is quite similar and the shape/size is identical. No transition or adjustment period was needed.

              I have been using the iS12 for many years. It is the only racquet I use. Lightweight and powerfull. The newer version (China) is not as well made as the older version (Austrian made)but it is still a very good racquet for power.

                  A:

                  Technologies and racquet specs have shifted somewhat over time since the HEAD i.S10 was introduced so finding a very similar racquet might require some experimentation. I would encourage you to take advantage of our demo program (http://www.holabirdsports.com/demo-racquet-program) to test some racquets out on the court. Our demo program is free; you only pay shipping, so it is definitely a great way to get a good feel for racquets you are interested in. The i.S12 is actually a pretty good start as the specs are similar to your i.S10. You might also want to consider the HEAD Ti.S6 (http://www.holabirdsports.com/tennis/racquets/head-ti-s6.html) or the HEAD YouTek Graphene Instinct PWR (http://www.holabirdsports.com/tennis/racquets/head-youtek-graphene-instinct-pwr.html). The Ti.S6 is a very lightweight, powerful racquet that has been one of HEAD's best-selling racquets. The Ti.S6's specs are fairly close to the i.S10, so it's worth a shot. Within HEAD's current generation of racquets, the YouTek Graphene Instinct PWR is probably the closest thing to your i.S10 and it is worth a try. If you have any questions, or need assistance with our demo program, please contact us at (866) 860-1416 or info@holabirdsports.com.

                How is it different rom IX 11. I like my IX11

                  A:

                  The i.S12 is a quarter of an inch longer than the i.X11 and it is slightly lighter. As a whole, the two racquets are very similar. Both will offer lots of power and an oversized hitting surface. The i.S12 was actually in HEAD's original Intelligence line of racquets, while the i.X11 was released as part of the second generation of the technology. The i.S12 (and all Intelligence racquets) features piezoelectric fibers just in the throat, while the i.X11 (and all Intelligence X racquets) features piezoelectric fibers in the throat and the upper hoop of the racquet for greater stiffness. In the end, if you are looking for a similar racquet to replace your i.X11, the i.S12 is probably a good place to start.
