    I am looking into having about 10 racquets (pure storm ltd gt) matched professionally. I am looking into places like P1 and **** but I can imagine that they are pretty expensive. Does anyone else know of any other places to have them matched?

    TW matches racquets for $20 each, much cheaper than any of the above

    they will match factory spec without any cost when you purchase. but not sure they will do it after purchase like PNY does.

    FYI I am not buying the racquets from TW. I get them straight from Babolat discounted.

    If you get them straight from Babolat, maybe you could ask them to check them for you before sending them out and ask them to give you 10 that are the same weight and balance. Then, if you want to add any lead later, just measure carefully before you put it on. Now you have 10 matched frames.

    they won't do it. If you buy from them just match close to spec. If they start doing it cost will be higher because $20 bucks will be too low for such time consuming job.

    RacquetMaxx. Bob Patterson, IMO, does better work than anywhere else, and at a fraction of the price. It doesn't hurt that he's a great guy either.

    In the moment.
    You can't go wrong with any of the services you name. I think their fees are pretty consistent with one another. TW also offers a matching service. E mail Chris and ask him what they'd charge you to do an 'after-market' match.

    BTW, I've had some frames matched by **** and I've also done my own. I can get them VERY close, but the ones from **** are indistinguishable from one another (to me) and I am VERY sensitive to this stuff.

    Good luck,
