    I like Wilson, Babolat, and Dunlop in no particular order.
    If I had the chance to be sponsored by any company, I would go with Wilson. I like more head light rackets. I also enjoy the power Babolats offer but would still rather play with wilson.

    Vantage has great customer service. Wilson has absolutely horrible quality control. Yonex and Fischer are trustworthy in terms of quality. Head makes pretty darn good rackets overall. Head's grip shape suits me the best, so I have to vote Head

    Wilson and Prince. I can't choose because I LOVE Wilson, but I am switching to Prince, so I voted for Prince. GO PRINCE!!!

    quality control isnt that bad when you know people who are sponsored by wilson and get stuff for free or really cheap (i got a brand new ksix one 18x20 for about $120) :)

    I've never really had a problem with their quality control. Did u just buy a bad racquet or a defect?

    havent tried vantage, though they look wicked. Do they ship to Canada?

    1. Wilson - played with this brand all my life - they have never let me down
    2. Yonex - Japanese quality control
    3. Head - great rackets, sometimes sloppy Paintjobs
    4. Babolat - the new comer, never a Babolat racket on sale
    5. Vantage - customization is great

    i played wilsons growing up, but it seems like their quality control has gone bad in recent years. i'm a big fan of dunlops, but i voted for prince since i switched to the pogs recently.

    Tecnifibre seems really cool, though I hear the QC could be better

    It's odd, considering that I don't use any of their frames currently, but I've decided that the next time I'm looking for a frame, I'll be going for a Yonex, that's how much I like 'em...

    had to give tecnifibre some love. great sticks.

    like head and wilson too, really like the prestige and six.one sticks... though im sure i could find a stick by just about anyone that i could play with.

    Where is MITT in the polls?

    Kidding, but I do think the Mitt Rocker will make a huge comeback if Mitt Romney is asked to be McCain's running mate this summer.

    I'm suprised by the poll results.

    In Italy all the young players use babolat (pure drive, aero pro drive and pure storn). The other use babolat, head or wilson. Very few people use prince and dunlop, more less fisher and volkl. very few diffused yonex.

    Volkl/Boris Becker at the moment. Wilson is a professional painting company.

    Volkl and Prokennex- mostly because they make arm friendly frames:)

    Wow, if you took the above poll results and made them actual market share figures, I think the big four would be hacked.

    My rankings, after many years and trying (too) many sticks would be:

    1. Vantage, by far
    2. Tecnifibre
    3. Fischer
    4. Volkl (not DNX)
    5. Dunlop (older models only)

    I love Volkl. I thought Babolat would have had a higher showing, than it presently does. Personally I don't like Babolat frames.
