what is your problem, these threads are made to have fun,and for people to talk about what they feel, why would you go into a thread you dont like and post something negative, i can careless about what you say quit complaining about my threads, and when they say dreydey dont read it or go near it....... it takes less energy to just ignore the thread than to go in the thread and type a complaint... obviously you are a very unintelligent person with no education whatsoever.

If these threads are meant, inter alia, for people to talk about what they feel, and some posters feel that your abundant posting about Donnay is annoying, then why can't they post about that?

why would you go into a thread you dont like and post something negative, i can careless about what you say quit complaining about my threads, and when they say dreydey dont read it or go near it....... it takes less energy to just ignore the thread than to go in the thread and type a complaint...
On the same token, wouldn't it take less energy for you to ignore their posts than to go on a tirade like this? Practice what you preach, man!



Back on topic, I like the OS PJ better.

Wow, congrats, you've made a ton of threads about Donnay frames. What's that? You have six?!? Yeah, well, guess what? No one cares.
Why you ask? Well, maybe because you've made it clear that you have 6 frames OVER 9000 times.

The fact that the "D" stencils are not all going the same direction in the photo is really killing me. :mrgreen:

Cheap, horrible rubbish, made in a second rate factory that also produces racquets that are sold in thrifty stores. Dunlop bought out Donnay and outsourced the manufacture of these cheap sticks. Keep well away.

Again I guess I have to explain this again to you for some reason. Actually Dunlop does not own Donnay! Sports Direct International owns both Donnay and DunlopSlazenger Group. Sports Direct International Bought Donnay in 1996. Then In 2004 Sports Direct International bought DunlopSlazenger Group.

The Donnay from Couvin, Belgium was bought by Sports Direct International (a British Company) in December 1996. Sports Direct International in the preceding years has closed the operations in Couvin, Belgium, moved operations to the U.K., moved Donnay down market where now the only racquets that have the Donnay name are low end recreational frames that are sold in Donnay branded stores, other sporting good stores in the U.K. controlled by Sports Direct, and uses the Donnay name on other sporting goods and apparel.
http://www.sports-direct-international.com/main.asp?pid=19

In 2004 Sports Direct International bought the DunlopSlazenger Group.

TW was able to have a agreement with Sports Direct International to have SMU's of old Donnay racquets that were originally designed in Couvin, Belgium and first made in Couvin, Belgium. The SMU's that TW has of the old Donnay racquets are made in China using the same OEM as the Dunlop branded racquets.

Why is this so hard for you to understand???:-?

They only own Dunlop/Slazenger in the UK, not world-wide.

Dunlop/Slazneger that is headquartered in the U.K. is designing the racquets like the Aerogel line that is sold world wide. Dunlop/Slazenger headquartered in the U.K. is signing and paying athletes like Haas, Berdych, Blake, and McEnroe to use Dunlop. The only markets that Dunlop/Slazenger Group headquartered in the U.K. does not own the licensing rights is in Australia, Japan, Fiji, Taiwan, South Korea, New Zealand. In The U.S. they are partners with the U.S. distributor. Dunlop/Slazenger from the U.K. hires the OEM in China to produce the Aerogel line of racquets that is sold world wide.

http://www.sports-direct-international.com/main.asp?pid=19
Sports Direct first acquired a licence to the Dunlop brand in respect of sports and leisure goods in various countries as part of the acquisition of Dunlop Slazenger Group Holdings Limited in 2004. The brand was originally associated with tyre production, having been established in 1888 by John Boyd Dunlop after he invented the modern pneumatic inflatable tyre, and first extended to sporting equipment in 1939. It has since become associated with a wide variety of sporting equipment and apparel. It is a leading brand in the badminton, golf, squash and tennis equipment markets due to its particularly strong heritage in racket sports as illustrated by historic association with players such as John McEnroe and Steffi Graf. In these heritage areas, Dunlop’s key competitors include Prince, Wilson and Head. It is also associated with sporting and casual footwear, such as “Green Flash” shoes. To maintain and develop the current profile of the brand, the Group has entered sponsorship agreements with several high-profile athletes, such as Darren Clarke, Tommy Haas, David Howell and Lee Westwood.
Following the acquisition of Dunlop International Limited in May 2006, the Group now owns the worldwide rights to license the Dunlop brand, save in relation to tyres, and other than in Australia, Fiji, South Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan and the United States. In the United States, the Dunlop brand is owned and controlled by DNA (Housemarks) Limited, a joint venture vehicle currently owned by the Group and SRI USA, Inc. The Directors regard the United States as a potential source of significant sales, as Dunlop remains an under-developed brand in the US sports retail market.

The Directors aim to increase considerably the income generated from the Dunlop brand over the years to come. The Group’s strategy with the Dunlop brand involves extensions to the existing product range as well as leveraging the brand’s strength in its existing core products, such as tennis balls and rackets, to drive wholesale revenue in Dunlop branded clothing and accessories.
The Group is also looking to increase its worldwide licensing income from the Dunlop brand by consolidating its existing licensees in Europe and expanding its licensing operations in the United States and Asia. The Directors also believe that there is scope to license the Dunlop brand into new product categories such as automotive products and accessories, bicycles, travel and leisure and fitness.

I told you, they are made in a second rate factory with other cheap quality racquets. I was told this by one of the top racquet technicians in Australia who strings and customises for a heap of pros on the world circuit. I'd rather believe him than some nobody on the internet.

Stop being an idiot. Your 'top racquet technician' friend obviously doesn't like Donnay. Instead of repeating bad information, try picking one up and playing with it... or look at the build quality. They are decent racquets, are finished nicely and play great.

I'm betting you've not actually held one in your hand.

I guess you never bothered to click on the links I provided.
The paragraph below is Sports Direct International explaining when they bought Donnay.
http://www.sports-direct-international.com/main.asp?pid=19
Donnay was the first Group Brand acquired by the Group in 1996. The Group owns the worldwide rights to the brand. Donnay is best known for tennis products. With the acquisition of the Dunlop and Slazenger brands, Donnay is likely to be utilised for entry-level tennis apparel and equipment, an area where Donnay has had some success in the past, as well as travel, leisure and fitness (including bags and accessories), golf and footwear.

Sports Direct first acquired a licence to the Dunlop brand in respect of sports and leisure goods in various countries as part of the acquisition of Dunlop Slazenger Group Holdings Limited in 2004..........
Following the acquisition of Dunlop International Limited in May 2006, the Group now owns the worldwide rights to license the Dunlop brand, save in relation to tyres, and other than in Australia, Fiji, South Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan and the United States. In the United States, the Dunlop brand is owned and controlled by DNA (Housemarks) Limited, a joint venture vehicle currently owned by the Group and SRI USA, Inc. The Directors regard the United States as a potential source of significant sales, as Dunlop remains an under-developed brand in the US sports retail market.

The SMU's that TW has of the old Donnay racquets are made in China using the same OEM as the Dunlop branded racquets. These SMU Donnay Pro One Limited Oversize and Pro One International Super midsize are ONLY AVAILABLE THOURGH TENNIS-WAREHOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT is a Tennis-Warehouse exclusive! These are not the same low-end Donnay racquets that are normally available in other markets like Australia.
I hope you finally understand. Because the information your "racquet technician" gave you was totally wrong on who owns Donnay and that is was Sports Direct International that bought Donnay. If only you bothered to follow the links.:-?
