    Hi,
    This a mythical racquet.
    Does anybody tried it? use it?
    Is it worth to buy this racquet?
    Many thanks for any reply.

    Great racquet. Alas, I have tried to buy one 3 times, and they do not return my emails or calls.

    As far as I know, they make very good racquets, but their thing is much more about fitting individual players with racquets that optimize their strokes. Pretty sure they use video clips and some computer analysis to check swing speed, etc.

    A friend of mine went to one of the big tennis operations in Florida a couple years ago with a group and they got to meet "the Bosworth people" for a talk and some demos one morning. They analyzed her shots, had her try a couple of their racquets, and she was pleasantly surprised with the "comfortable fit" they got for her in rather short order. She just wasn't ready to plunk down the cabbage for one or two of their custom racquets on the spot.

    So long-story-long, decent racquets from Bosworth, but you might be sort of rolling the dice with buying one that hasn't been matched up with your game. I suppose that's the case with any unfamiliar racquet we might snag for ourselves, but I've certainly gone the buy-it-to-try-it route myself... and I'll do it again!

    Same here. No returned e-mails or messages. Filled out the online form numerous times. At one point I got so determined, I just kept dialing the number for three days straight, and nobody ever answered the phone during business hours. Quite strange.

    did you guys who tried Bosworth and they didnt answer, did you go to Vantage? They seem like a cheaper alt to bos.

    I bought an old bosworth from the 80's . I think it's called the FOX or something?

    I paid $40.00 . It's the same octagon shape as the Bosworth . It looks the same .....I wonder if Bosworth simply gave their 80's over Stocked racquets a paint job and resold them?

    Anyway the 80's Bosworth racquet was solid but didn't blow my mind.

    Fox Bosworth, likely the 210.
    Similar racquet, I had one that was yellow and was graphite/ceramic/fiberglass. Good racquet, grommets eventually wore out.

    The current Bosworths are simply these leftover sticks that they would lead tape for you and charge $400. Don't be a sucker, I know this to be true.
