    Anyone heard of this? It's similar to Babolat Play, but instead of it being built inside the handle, it sticks onto where dampener would go.

    Ultimately, the accuracy of the calculations will determine whether this is a viable product or not. The fact that they have kept the weight down and kept it fairly unobtrusive is a plus. I wonder about durability and how secure it is on the racquet. It is hard to envision anything but an ugly ending when one of puppies goes flying across the court.

    Totally agree, especially since they're directly competing against Babolat and their "Play and Connect Racquet". We'll see if it can withstand being abused. Also curious about the price point for this.

    I don't exactly see it competing against Babolat, similar yes.
    The big advantage is it will go on any racquet and am sure it wont cost $400 like a Babolat. Connects to your phone etc. This thing sounds great. Very much looking forward to seeing this. Does anyone know when it will be released?

    Hi Guys!

    Sergey Feingold here, I'm the co-founder/lead engineer of Shot Stats. Our apologies for taking so long to find this thread, and I hope that nobody minds my resurrecting a slightly old thread.

    I did want to take the opportunity to answer some of your questions ITT and any others you may have.

    Chotobaka - Accuracy is our main goal. We hope to be the first to offer true quantitative data in the tennis world. There is a lot of testing to be done specifically with the goal of getting the most accurate data possible with the technology available today. Durability and security on the racket are also critical, since all this fancy gadgetry won't do anybody any good if it comes flying off.

    I can't say anything too specific about price at the moment, but yes it will be much less than the Babolat (<$200). I also can't talk too much about release dates but I can tell you we are in the early prototyping stage and are aiming for mid to late 2014.

    I'll be happy to answer any other questions you may have ITT. You can also get in touch with us through the email link on our website if you prefer.

    - Sergey
