    I'm starting a racquet company - how would you design your perfect racquet?

    Yes, absolutely - it just takes a lot of time to go back and forth with samples from the China to the UK so the process is taking a little longer than expected! Hold tight and I'll post an update in the nest week or two.

    Cool - well the updated samples have been ordered, i'll drop you a message when they're approved and the production sticks are ready to be sent out. Happy to give 2/3 sticks and a bag for free if he does the usual bit of social media promotion. I have - and I actually still have a couple! It...

    That's be a bit too similar to wilson for us. We're probably going for the rubberized light grey colour with gold accents as it's classy in an art-deco kinda way. Our USP 1) Different, unique design design 2) Different weights - 330gram in open/closed string patterns, something wilson doesn't...

    I'm starting a racquet company - how would you design your perfect racquet?

    My train of thought was that if i can get a vague nod of approval from the forum, which I think i have, then I'm on the right track with the products! You should never be scared of getting the opinions of critics early on in a company's formation, as long as you don't take it to heart. Not to...

    Why do alot of people still think “made in china” means the product is low quality/sketchily manufactured?

    I'm getting my company's racquets made in China. I've skyped called them as they've walked around the factory (insert health and safety related joke here) and the manufacturing, testing qc controls are legit. good conditions and genuinely good quality stuff. When I imported stuff from china 12...

    The most comfortable racket you've played with?

    I second this - i miss that racquet, I just needed a bigger head! My old Volkl Tour-10 V Engines were sofa-like as well.

    Without libelling myself here, Djokovic's elbow issues 'may' have been slightly overblown by his team including his 'unspecified' surgery. Just saying. Thanks! A foam filled handle is likely to and the frame won't be too stiff- 60ra strung 65/ra unstrung going by the factory.

    I'm not sure about putting foam all the way through the frame, but we won't have racquets that are too stiff.. the first test racquets have an unstrung ra of 65 or so.

    Yes 18x20 in the 330g version is definitely coming and maybe in the 300g. We're still undecided on the paint colour but will let you know if the glossy black is picked to match your labrador ;)

    Got it, thank you. The short answer: very. I love tennis and have had so many different racquets so every day of this business is a blessing for me. The short answer is that it will probably play the same as other racquets, just with unique specs that some will like, some will not, and no...
