    Comments about HEAD I. S12:

    I already own this racquet and wanted a 2nd one. It has a great sweet spot. Lightweight and I can generate lots of power, as well as control. The strings on this racquet help to create spin.

    Service and delivery comments:

    First time I have ordered online from Holabird. Holiday sales were great. Racquet arrived ahead of time and was in perfect condition. I will order again.

      Comments about HEAD I. S12:

      I know this is the only racket I want because I've tried all possible competition. I string with high spin poly like Babalot Smash 18 ga. I get consistent power and control. The light weight reduces fatigue. Try it.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Perfect online purchase. Great delivery, best price.

              A:

              If you're looking for a Head Tennis String that is comparable to the INTELLISTRIN, we would suggest the HEAD Primal Hybrid 16. This tennis string is focused on helping players achieve impressive "Power under Control". This hybrid string is designed for players that want impeccable playability without losing feel. It provides maximum power, control, and touch.

            I have a head intelligence S10 racquet that I like very much. Is is getting pretty worn and I would like to find a new racquet that would play similar to the S10. Any recommendations.

              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
            Asked on 4/22/2013 by Bud from San Jose CA

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              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.
