For any club player this is a good racquet. The price is great if you are the kind of person who needs a backup in the bag, but I would not try to compete in tournaments with this racquet, the power is just not there.

The racquet is not bad, but it may not be best suited for me with some of my arm problems. But, the darn thing broke in less than a month's use.

This is a great racquet with very good maneuverablity and power. It is my go to racquet. There is more vibration from the strings than I like.

The liquid metal 170 is the best racquet I have ever used.For years I tried kennex,ektelon,wilson,never eforce, but this 170 beats them all.I have such confidence hitting it.I can get any ball speed I want up to my limit probably 120 mph.I am 60,not supposed to use a light racquet, but I wouldnt play with anything else now.

Very light with good ball control and above-average power. Switched out the factory grip with a thicker, rubber grip and improved overall racquet feel. I have used racquets costing double the price of the liquidmetal with little if any noticeable advantages. Holds up just fine in almost daily use as well as league play. You can't go wrong with this racquet.

Very fast, gets some taking used to but after you can handle it the way you want to, it'll take care of business

This is a very very good racquet with almost no weaknesses. Good power, good control, looks good, good durability, and good weight. Feels good in your hand. If you try this racquet, you will come to like it a lot I believe.
