Pro Supex make some cool frames, complete knock offs of frames such as the box beam Tour 90. I don't know how they play though.

Pro Suprex is trying to break into the market- giving a 50% sponsorship with more liberal acceptance requirements is the way they are doing it- nothing suspect or underhanded about that.

There are numerous posts on string comparisions and their product is fine-
There are a few posts that seem to be from someone working for them, but look over these string popsts- I don't think there is any systemic 'problems" with the strings-
They have product that matches up to "name brands" in each catagory and string dimension(s)- like for instance calling the stuff Suprex BANGER vs. Big Banger.

It is just that everyone playing is soooo.... particular about what they use.
I was offered same discount to play the string, got a couple samples as well.... if I did not have a sweet deal on strings now, I would have taken them up on thier BANGER stuff- worth a try for the money.

There is a site/ more information on STRINGSDEPOT. and they are selling some nice logo shirts at 4.99 and like 2.00 shipping (or so).

I got the half sponsorship also but I do use the string. The half sponsorship is 30-45% off. And any racquet is only $69. Reels of Blue Gear for $65 instead of $99 Any racquet $69. I have the whole price list but this is a example.

By the way I'm ranked 12th in my state and just inside the Top 100 in my section. If you want to use the products then go for it. If you just want the deal dont waste their time.

Why did you apply???????

They offer a half sponsorship and a full sponsorship. The half sponsorship is 30-45% off not half off. I dont understand why Babolat15 would even try if he has no intention of using it and why if he is already sponsored by kirsh. Just playing games which makes it hard on the ones that are serious. What is only a limited amount of sponsorships are offred each year. You just got somebodys that deserves and wants or needs one. Thats just plain bad.

Stick to playing games on the court.

I am an old teaching pro and I love the Pro-Supex strings. I think the Premier Ace is especially nice. I don't intend to apply for any kind of sponsorship but if I had been offered one I think that I would use it. I really like their complete lineup with maybe the exception of the Blue Gear-good string, just not my cup of tea.

My understanding is that the Pro Supex premiere ace strings are the same as the Leopard Control strings sold by TW. My son got a sponsorship from Pro Supex and all their strings seem to be top shelf. The BlueGear is supposedly similar to Pro Hurricane Tour but maybe a little softer (the color is a bit much for me). Their Big Ace strings are rated pretty high in Europe.
They make a synthetic gut very similar to Prince synthetic gut w/duraflex that is very good.

They seem to be a good company to work with and their US supplier is very responsive.

I think i will recieve my aerogel 300's from them tomorrow. I was lucky enough to have gone to a place where dunlop were promoting their things and they offered me the deal because of the level i am in. I am getting better as i just got a coach now. My coach is awesome, he is teaching me how to play better and fixing all my problems. I am getting much better. I dont know the requirements as i did not ask. They just offered me the deal and it sounded really good.:p

Well we had tryouts at the start of the year, and i have improved a lot since then. Dunlop hesitated to give me the deal, but my dad told them that they promised us and they gave it to us. Woodlands Varsity is pretty good. Well the top 4 are really good. I think the lowest player is a 16's Champ. I will probably make varsity next year. But t is no guarantee, so i still have to go out there and try hard. By the way im not on the freshman team i am on the Junior Varsity team.

oh, people were wondering how to buy the products at the sponsorship price, because they dont have it listed on their website. So, i sent them an email asking, and that was their reply. I guess that is how you can buy the strings and stuff with the sponsorship pricing.

So, even if you don't meet these criteria:

Criteria For Half Sponsorship

Top 25 in your USTA Section
Top 200 in U.S
Top 500 ITF
Current ATP/WTA Player



Can you still get offered a 1/2 sponsorship by showing dedication and promise?

300 in Texas is lower Champ level unless everything has changed. When I played 300 was actually ZAT level for most. You must be very persuasive.

Mr Korny
06-05-2007, 01:25 PM
Well, I play 18's Supers in Texas... Which last time I checked is higher than 16's champs..
Not bashing or anything, dont get me wrong, but what does it take to get a sponsorship of any kind from them?
I'm just tight on money, having to supply my own strings/ rackets/ stringer and some lessons, so I'm just lookin for some help.

All of you TX players be careful on sponsorships as it can make you ineligible for UIL Competition if you play UIL at all, unless they have relaxed the rules some in recent years.

The "Half Sponsership" thing could just be a marketing ploy (not that there is anything wrong with that). Have you heard of anyone being turned down? They end up selling merchandise to someone who probably wouldn't even consider them otherwise.

Oh yea defenitely. I think it's a great idea what there doing becuase they have all of these kids buying tons of strings from them just becuase they have half sponsorship, and if they didn't have this sponsorship they would never buy the strings. All while they are becoming more known in the US.

yeah its ridiculous, i got a sooner response from Head, which is obviously a bigger company
i sent an application through the online form, but at the time the preferred way of sending was to scan the form in rather than just send it via the website. so i sent it once by online and like twice via scan then e-mail (i messed something up the first time lol)
so three times total, they had to have gotten at least one of them by now, i sent the applications in the first week of march.
so its been a full two months and some, still no response...

luckily i forgot about it cause for a couple weeks i was checking my e-mail everyday
so to everyone: don't hold your breath waiting for Vantage to respond

im pretty sure since i have a good ranking in my section and am top 5 in my state i can make it pretty easily.
especially since everyone and their mother here who dont even have a ranking at all and just play tournaments get the grade 2 sponsorship
i know how these boards work i've been here like a year and a half longer than you, but thanks for the tip. like many others who had to wait a few months to get the sponsorship, i was expressing how it was the same for me, and that it takes a while for them to get back-even agreeing with you in that it does take a few months- to people so they shouldnt be concerned if they havent responded.
no one's crying, so you can go shave your back hair now.

I think the half sponsorship just offers you like 40% off. I don't think its like a player's package. So i guess whoever applied and got the sponsorship are taking it.

Or atleast if they are buying something, they already have a discount.
