    Has anyone sent in multiple racquets to get matched by TW, if so were you happy with the end result? I am thinking of send 4 of my POG's to get matched and I was curious if anyone has done this and if the had a good experience.

    Thanks

    Why not just send them into **** or Bosworth, as they specialize in this type of thing?

    Well, TW only charges $20 per racquet and I am trying to keep the cost as low as possible and I am sure that others are much more expensive. Plus with the great service that TW has provided over the years I would like to assume this would be a quality experience, But just curious to here feedback from someone who has done this.

    Thanks

    stick to the professionals that do it correct. TW does not yet have a reputation for matching racquets, but **** does....the little extra money you spend will go a long way.

    I think when I get my second KBlade I might stop by TW and let them Match both.

    You never know how it goes until you try.

    They have some pretty good racket matching skills. I think it's just as good as everyone else, for a lower price. I bet when they do start getting a reputation for matching a racket, they'll start charing more, so just do it now.

    For what 99% of "us" require, and that being same weight, balance, and inertia (a.k.a. swing-weight) TW has both the 'tools' [RDC] and the trained knowledge to do top-quality work.

    When it becomes whereas you want a Head, (example) grip shape on a Wilson, (example) racquet, then yes...the Pro's like; Priority One and the others, can be of greater assistance.

    If what you really are looking to get is having your same frames 'matched' in those 3-very important perimeters, then TW is a darn good bargain!

    My local shop will also match racquets for about that price - measure and add lead weight were needed.

    You may want to check with your's.

    Match racquets using TWU customization tool

    Why not do it yourself? Go to the TW University Customization Tool.

    http://twu.tennis-warehouse.com/learning_center/customization.html

    Use the racquet you want to match to as the "What I Want" column. Use the specs of the racquet you want changed in the "What I Have" column. It figures out the best solution for you.

    Isn't the TW racquet matching if you have a frame and want to purchase more, they will most closely "match" your purchase to what you have? I don't believe it's a customization program for existing frames.

    Or if you buy more than one, they will "match" the frame as close to identical from what they have. Just my 2c.

    How do I find the balance of a racquet without a machine? Or do I need to buy one?

    This is what they did for me. I bought six frames and they matched them in weight and swingweight for me and sent the six heaviest that all matched closely.
