The magazine also applauded the CrossBow 6 for its ease of play, superior dampening and excellent handling. Among the 12 racquets tested, four featured integrated dynamic bridge constructions, a trend in racquet design in 2008.
Power loaded for players with shorter more compact swings, HEAD‘s 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.
