its a pity, with tons of pros using 27.5 and 28 inches long frames these days and the number increasing, only Babolat offers the Plus versions.

for example yonex main players use longer frames, Nalbandian, Hewitt, Monaco and most of the girls but all the stock Yonex are just 27inch, the same happens to Prince and Dunlop.

i'm a 3.5 player with 2HB and cant see myself playing without a 27.5 frame at least.

i know that standard length may be more commercial and used by most, but you should have the option, me for example, i'm stuck with babolat's plus frames, and i will love to use a Head or a Yonex.

You could do a search for threads by a poster named 2handsbothsides or use this link:


It isn't that big an issue to lengthen a racquet since it is reversible. Patience is the only requirement along with glue and wood, etc. You may have to readjust the racquet's SW and balance after modifications.

Yonex, Wilson, and Head all have a few extended length racquets. They're not as prevalent or marketed as extended versions, but they're there.
