    I'm sure it's been done before.
    But curious to know what brand your primary racquet is.
    (I put as many brands as I could fit in the poll, sorry if I left yours out.)

    I went to the Vantage website and I was disappointed. Since they only give you certian options, couldn't you just do a racket search on TW to find one at least "close enough" to what you want, perhaps needing a little lead tape, grip adjustment, etc.? I would like to see a company that actually makes custom frames (i.e. you determine exact weight, head shape, size, composition). I mean, what if you want a 13 oz 5 pt head heavy racket? Granted, you would be pretty crazy, but hey, buying it made would be better than adding gobs of lead tape.

    I am kind of surprised that Wilson is so far ahead. I am also surprised Head is second. We usually think of Prince and Wilson as top two racket brands...I did, anyway. Other is also way up there.

    Babolat right here, wouldn't an all black PJ with just the white stripes be sweet? I think so.

    I've been using Yonex since the 90's but I used Prince for quite awhile and they're great racquets... and before Prince I used Dunlop jr. but I was like 5 and I switched to Prince when I was like 10 and I think I was like 17 when I switched to Yonex.
