I would love some inputs form those who have ordered for Vantage. How long will it take receive it (I ordered it Monday 4/21); is it a quality racket; does it come with any warranty etc??? Here are the specs:
VTCUSTOM: Vantage Racquet (code 111111)
Frame size 90sq", String pattern 16x18, Stiffness 63 RA, Length
27", Weight & Balance 330g / 11.7oz, 315mm / 9pts HL, Colour black, Handle
shape 1, Handle size 3 - 4 3/8", Grip Leather Tan, Cover Full Deluxe
Thanks for any input.

Great rackets as long as the racket you have ordered is within teh range of something you would use on a regular basis.

In other words, if you play with 115 sq. inch racket, and order a 95 18x20, you will not like the racket.

The vantage rackets have been generally well received on the boards. My younger brother plays with them and they are quite solid with a very linear power.

My brother uses a 100 sq inch 11.5 ounce 70 RA stick. It creates easy power and is very user friendly.

If you do a search you will find a number of threads on vantage sticks.

the specs should be close to an i.Prestige mid/prestige classic 600 (my current sticks) (except the string pattern of course).

I think about 2 to 3 weeks if I remember correctly, assuming you are in the states.

i just bought 4 racquets 95 sq .in 10 points headlight 330 gm 63 ra flex, unstrung. the strings add about 15 gm and move the balance 2-3 points. an over grip and dampener can also affect the final balance poit about 2-3 mm. after all is said and done my racquet should be 12.4 oz and 7-8 points headlight. it took 2-3 weeks to get them and they play great. solid, stable, minimal to no vibration, good combo of feel and control and at least the 95 frame 63 flex low- medium power but very controllable.interested to hear how your racquet plays with those specs and if you can compare it to your other racquets
