    Hey everyone,
    I believe I qualify for the babolat package (ranked #4 in my section ATM for 16 and unders), and I was wondering if I could contact them to receive a sponsorship for shoes and strings without actually getting the $300 racket package.
    Thanks in advance

    There is a shoe package, but it doesn't come with strings.

    Hope I helped. Just curious, which section you from?

    How are my chances with Dunlop if I'm 87 in my section? I really liked the 500 tour 4D and was contemplating switching to it.

I am 16 right now my birthday is in the middle of july. SHould i try to get my 16 rank better or should i just start playing 18s. If i play 18s will the company recoginize this and give me a break at all?

    It never hurts to shoot an email, you never know, if your email is really good, maybe they'll give it to you...

    Regarding the 18s ranking being a bit more lenient, I know for a fact that Kirschbaum is more lenient as the age groups go up....

    Hey man, I am pretty sure I am switching to K-baum PLII... I really like it. Just a few complaints on the forehand but so far its good....

    Have you ever tried hybriding it? .... and what are your opinions since you've switched to it for a little....

    (BTW I believe we are now friends on FB) Haha.


    Bag- Not sure, maybe the new Green one that Dunlop players were sporting at the Open, and the strings are some Dunlop Syn Gut's (I'd never use them) and yes, of course, any racquet.. (4D)

    I'd say the Dunlop 4D Aerogel 300 Tour...

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCDUNLOP-DAG3HT.html

    In fact, the Kblade 98 shows up on the bottom where it lists ' Racquets that are similar"


    Note: I was about to switch to the 300 T, when I finally decided that the grip shape, weight, and flex would be just too much for me to switch to and get used to... it's like the Flexpoint Prestige MP has a curse on me, never to leave it...

    However, I am very antsy for the release of the YT Prestige MP, can't wait to try it out. (Skipped the MG line, didn't like it more than my FXP)

    Yeah try it, great stick, but I just couldn't adjust to it for my tournaments. For the reasons I wrote above.

    Even TW gave it good reviews...

    So when I get an email back I'll let you know or vice versa...

    Btw, I saw you post a pic of some Concords.... speaking of the 11's are you going to pick up the Spacejams that are coming out on BF this year?

    No sir, his name is Preston Poon , no where near top in the section nor nationally, maybe she got a flood of people after him and started to raise the level?
