Daryl Selby used this for like 2 seconds. Here he is at the British Open:

But then Daryl announced he was switching to the Black Knight Magnum Corona 6. Oh well. I hope it wasn’t the Argon.
It’s odd that I can only find this racket for sale at sweatband.com (update: never mind, it’s more widely available now). If you visit the Head Website, the racket is mentioned, but the link goes nowhere. It’s sort of like the Argon wants you to think it’s there, but then when you dig deeper, you can’t see it. Like Santa Claus. And if you think about it, have you ever seen the Argon2 145 and Santa Claus in the same room together? Me neither.
To make things more confusing, there’s also an older Head model, the Argon2 155, which is white instead of black, and as the name suggests, is 10 grams heavier.
Here’s what Geoff at racketshop had to say:
@squashsource I've got one in the shop, looks great with the matt paint finish – almost tempted to nick it for myself.
