    And what's your reason for why? Because they don't make as great a profit as the oligopolies in the market?

    How can you you use a racquet that you think is sh**?

    pro supex makes some nice racquet and strings...
    I dont understand why donnay is on your list.

    Vantage is a sweet company because i can customize a racquet to my stats..

    I think he suffers from memory loss. He can't even remember that he uses the 2nd worst racquets in the world!

    With the exception of Avery and Kneiseel, this thread makes sense if it was labeled: Racquets not sold on Tennis Warehouse. That's about it

    LOL

    This thread is hilarious, OP should just go with the worst not the 10 worst because he/she can't even name 10 without repeating Avery and naming every other companies beside the big ones

    C'mon OP, prove to us that you have solid reasons for your choices. Most of us don't believe you've tested enough of the companies rackets, apparel, accessories etc to make a reasoned decision.

    Prove us wrong, and tell us why Wilson, Babolat, Head, Yonex and Technifibre aren't on your list!

    I think by number 10 "Every" he is saying every company because he doesnt know why he made the list in the first place.

    Donnay? LOL..yes I may be biased, but why do they suck? Why are they one of the worst, because the tennis division went out of business? That never means they made a bad racquet, quite the contrary. And for every reason you list about their racquets, you can do the same easily for Prince and Wilson.

    They don't totatlly suck as a company, but one thing I think is totally messed up was one time a customer brought back a pair of Babolat Mens Team All Court shoes, they had literally just got a week before and the sole was coming unglued from the shoe. We sent them back for warranty replacement and they didn't replace the shoes, instead they sent us back a letter on why they would not replace them which stated customer dissatisfaction with the sole of the shoe was not a valid reason for replacement. I get that the first version of the Team All Courts had crappy rubber on them, but for them to come unglued and not replaced was just ridiculous, we stopped carrying Babolat shoes after that.

    What a dumb and annoying post....

    1) Its pointless
    2) You listed two that you use DUH
    3) Donnay have been used by some great players
    4) You listed Avery twice (well once since Every is not a company).
    5) Vantage are in the top 5 best not worst.
    6) Your annoying
    7) Its pointless (it really is).

    I was thinking the exact same thing. You must have a real issue with avery if you tried to sneak them into the list a second time.

    Snauwaert? For the ergonom? Mind your tongue. Snauwaert put out frames for years that were higher quality that most of the frames produced today. The ergonom line was an attempt to do something different- and, to be honest, not a bad attempt. Just becuase its different doens't mean its bad.

    Pick up a Wood LaGrande or any Orbit frame, and then try to tell me Snauwaert is a bad company. The Golden Mid plays like a pro staff- wonderful racket.

    1. Snauwaert--I loved them, but they went out of business
    2. Spalding--I didn't love them, but they were good, but they went out of business.
    3. Rossignol--I loved them, but they went out of business.
    4. Bard--lots of potential, but they went out of business.
    5. Puma--very innovative, but they went out of business.
    Does anyone detect a theme here? What made them bad?

    soo....

    you're saying that if a company produces a strange or different racquet, you can name it one of the worst tennis companies without ever playing with it?


    sorry for the double post...

    Toalson
    BDE
    Mizuno
    Fox
    Klipper
    Slazenger

    The only two companys I will stay away from at all costs are Volkl and Slazenger. Anything else I don't mind.

    The only tennis company that I'd stay away from are the Chinese ones. Boy, those are some pretty darn bad frames! (and I don't mean frames manufacturered in China- I mean frames manufactured by companies with Chinese owners in China)
