View Full Version : How does TW choose what frames to carry?

I noticed that it took a long time for TW to finally carry Volkl, and that Power Angle is there (the first real niche racquet), but Technifibre is basically launching their product line from TW.

How does TW decide which brands to carry, and what do you look for in a racquet company when you are selling their product?

Just curious...

We were the first in the US to carry Volkl racquets on the Web. For awhile, Volkl racquets were only available to Pro Shops and those that sold them on the Web were in violation of Volkl's policy.
Fischer racquets were also only available to Pro Shops for awhile.
Currently we carry all the major brands and welcome queries from any racquet manufacturer. However, some of the smaller brands like to keep their Internet presence limited to their own web site.
