My favorite racquet the Technifiber 315 is being discontinued. I glanced at Bosworth's web site and they build custom racquets based on a questionnaire. Instead of that, can you send them a racquet and say "clone it and use the TW specs as a reference"? Anyone have any personal experience? Any idea about the price?

I think thew price of one racquet approaches $400.

The 315 is still available. You could stock up 5 or 6 of them for the price of 2 custom frames....and there's no assurance that the custom would play anything like the 315.

They're going to drop it at the end of the year, so it'll be around for a while after that too, so you could still get some!

I realize that, but buying 5 or 6 315s now will not sit well with the wife! On the other hand, the same amount of money may get approval if phrased as being for a custom racquet because my racquet has been discontinued.

A wife who thinks having racquets custom made for $400 is a thrifty solution to finding something to play tennis with?? Do you consider her that gullible or that dumb? And how beaten-down are you that you can't buy a few 315s now by promising her you won't need any more racquets for the next decade?

Well, she doesn't know much about tennis and I could tell her any other racquet spec gives me arm pain (which is sort of true).

Get them anyway. When they come in the mail, tell her they were on sale at the Home Shopping Network, she'll understand then.

The only drawback I see with custom racquets is when you go to sell it. Your custom features may not be what someone else is looking for. Then your market is a lot smaller than with a regular racquet. IMHO.
I'd still like to get one made from Bosworth though. FYI.

If you can afford it, go for it. If you don't, 2 years from now you'll wonder if you should have. If you don't like it, you can chalk it up as an expensive experience.

ive heard so many mixed revues from bosworth. i even know a guy that worked there and he told me that it depends on who does your racket. you could end up with a really nice racket but u could also end up with something that someone threw together right before lunch.
