View Full Version : Where are the pro mold racquets actually made (other than Head)?

Does anyone know if the Wilson pro room only designs the pro's custom mold racquets or do they manufacture them at that location too? In other words, are Wilson pro racquets made in China like the rest of the Wilson retail racquets, or are they custom made in North America at the pro room (ex: at Wilson offices in Illinois)?

As well, does anyone know where other brands manufacture their custom pro molds? I know that Head produces their pro racquets in Austria. But does anyone know if the Blake/Haas Dunlop pro mold is made in England or China?; are the the Prince pro mold made in the States? are the Technifibre pro's racquets designed and made in France at Technifibre?etc etc).

If they are all made in China, I wonder if the pros have the same QC issues that we encounter with retail products being made by these same manufacturers?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Well, I suspect they are made in China. But the pro-room check the QC issues and pick out the best ones(or the ones that match the closest) for the pros.

Thanks Bhagi Katbamna, but I'm also hoping that some of the posters that have pro molds in hand can chime in too, or those who have actulally worked on these molds (ex:RacquetDesign, RJYU; Richard Parnell; Jura, etc etc) can share their first hand knowledge.
