    Great rackets as long as the racket you have ordered is within teh range of something you would use on a regular basis.

    In other words, if you play with 115 sq. inch racket, and order a 95 18x20, you will not like the racket.

    The vantage rackets have been generally well received on the boards. My younger brother plays with them and they are quite solid with a very linear power.

    My brother uses a 100 sq inch 11.5 ounce 70 RA stick. It creates easy power and is very user friendly.

    If you do a search you will find a number of threads on vantage sticks.

    the specs should be close to an i.Prestige mid/prestige classic 600 (my current sticks) (except the string pattern of course).

    I think about 2 to 3 weeks if I remember correctly, assuming you are in the states.

    i just bought 4 racquets 95 sq .in 10 points headlight 330 gm 63 ra flex, unstrung. the strings add about 15 gm and move the balance 2-3 points. an over grip and dampener can also affect the final balance poit about 2-3 mm. after all is said and done my racquet should be 12.4 oz and 7-8 points headlight. it took 2-3 weeks to get them and they play great. solid, stable, minimal to no vibration, good combo of feel and control and at least the 95 frame 63 flex low- medium power but very controllable.interested to hear how your racquet plays with those specs and if you can compare it to your other racquets
