View Full Version : Demo Racquets question

I am looking at a couple of Racquets on **** and some of them say "used Demo" or "Bought as Demo". What does that mean? Is there any difference in that versus just a "used" one?

I think a "used demo" is exactly that and "bought as a demo" can either mean that it's a used demo or it could be one that was shipped from a racquet company that was intended to be a demo but there's no real difference between the demos and regular frames. Sometimes Demos will say "DEMO" somewhere on the frame.

Well yeh it was used as a demo.
Now I know what head are doing by keeping the wrapping on the handle with an overgrip and using protective tape.

demo usually has some special strings or the perferred string and is tuned so it would work for everyone. The demos at my store have their grips off.

Demos are specially marked racquest (labeled "demo"). They are sold to stores at a lower price with the assumption that the store will lend, not sell. A racquet bought as a demo is usually identical to any other racuet. Sometimes, you see paint chips, flaws. If the raquest was used as a demo, it may have a lot of wear and tear.

I have a Diablo with a Demo on it. I don't feel any difference to the Original one. So if you want it, go get it.
