    I play with the Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT. I was using 3 Wilson K 6.1 95\'s but I just bought one Babolat and it is a lot better. I have a partial with Wilson, and I did not try for Babolat because I do not know who to contact.

    Ya I do. I played the ottawa open a couple years back and I won it, at the Rideau. The GT is awesome compared to the k 6.1 95, except for serving.

    Thanks for the reply. I couldn't find their email of their site so by any chance would you know Wilson's or one of their representatives?

    Emailed Kirschbaum and both my brother and I qualify for the 20 % preferred package which is 1 level down from the full sponsorship..

    The guy Eduardo is really strict... but I am not sure about switching strings yet. I am still in the midst of play testing PLII and whether I should hybrid it (like I usually do)...

    Dunlops really easy. Kristin Mears is very flexible and even lets kids who don't even have national rankings obtain the deal of like 200 bucks for 4 racquets, a bag, strings, hat, stencil

    I know this because I was on the verge of switching to Dunlop, but something held me back and I am still with my old Flexpoint Prestige MP and decided to wait on for the Youtek Prestige..

    Very unfortunate that I age out of the 14s in a couple of weeks and by the time the Youtek Prestige comes out, I won't have a ranking to get a deal with head. :(

    I would have to wait and develop my ranking in my section and I'm from Eastern so achieving a top 25 ranking in the 16s is tough to do until probably my 2nd year in the 16s

    Both are equally as easy. However Dunlop's package is a lot more enticing. You get 4 racquets versus 2 from Tec.

    She is an extremely nice woman , but she's very laid back and takes her time. She only replies at work hours and never checks email during weekends and stuff. So patience is a key with her. If you just sent her an email. Maybe Monday you'll get a response.

    It may possibly be kristinmears.dunlopsports.com

    I will double check for you right now.

    Edit: No I believe I got it right; this is the email.

    Dude, you should at least try and like the racquets before taking the package.

    Like I am losing my elegibility to get any package with any company since I am aging out of the 14s in a few weeks, but that isn't a reason for me to get a Head package right now because I am waiting for the Youtek Prestige.

    I know alot of people that would buy a package and get a temporary racquet (lets say the YT Rad ) and then use their re order sheet to get the YT Prestiges for a cheaper price.

    Looks like I am going to have to buy my YT Prestiges through a regular shop... (maybe through fromut h since I have an account with them)

    Maybe, Dunlop maybe even give you their deal. Give it a shot, it's better to try than not at all..
