    Well, the easiest brands in Canada will be the same as the easiest brands in the US. Their requirements might be a little bit different but an "easy" brand anywhere else is still likely to be an easy brand in Canada.

    Oh ok so which brands? Example being on Adna, it asks online for usta ranking or w.e, but I only have a Canadian ranking, and I am not allowed to leave usta ranking blank.

    My Dunlop package still has not come and I probably placed this order 2 weeks ago.... Its really annoying me now especially with a national coming up on Thursday.. ugh..

    Definitely give them a F in service, even though the rep is so nice, she just is so laid-back and slow.

    ^ Sorry, but I would be "working" on something else... Like that girly backhand, or maybe that complete lack of stamina displayed during H.S. season last spring.

    Not very hard. But I don't like their offer. They only give you 2 sticks.

    Yeah I saw that too. I think it only matters if the companies are giving you money to use their stuff though.

    Yeah, as long as you don't get money from them, you are ok. I was wondering the same back in 2004-2005 when I was going through colleges.

    I'd say so too. However, I guess it's a similar requirement to the other companies who offer full sponsorships. I'd imagine their requirements for partial are much easier though.

    Is it just me or is anyone else having problems applying for a Tecnifibre sponsorship; it's mandatory to list B-day/Postal Code, so when I try my b-day; this pops up:

    (Birthday Here) does not match the date format (/[0-3][0-9]\/[0-1][0-9]\/[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]/)

    What is that type of format?

    Also when I put in my postal code (I'm Canadian) is states that ____ is not an integer. Any help would be great

    PolyStar has very reasonable requirements for preferred player pricing. The only strings used by ATP top-10 players are Lux, Bab, and PolyStar (Davydenko). You can get Energy or Turbo for under $80/reel. Email me for more info.
