The Head CrossBow 8 racquet is designed for a short, slow and compact type of swing making it good for 2.0+ level players. The open string pattern delivers the same amount of pop for both serves and overheads, while the manuverability of the racquet is great for groundstrokes and deep put-aways at the net.
