Any Info On Stepanek's New Racquet?
Looks Like A Bancroft. Anybody Knows Where To Find One?
Bosworth, there's a thread already - I did a search earlier
yup bosworth custom available for public. i think its ugly imo.
how much do they sell these for??
Yeah, Radek and his racquet were made for each other.
Yet he gets the good looking girls....
I was wondering the same thing. What is the price of one of these racquets? I'd be interested in buying one if those things were that good. How much has everyone spent on buying racquet after racquet? It may actually save you money in the long run. IMHO.
I disagree about the looks of the Bosworth. I had the old Fox 210 and loved it (though the quality control left a lot to be desired). Wish I had the disposable income to invest in a Bosworth.
But then there is no need to buy a race car if you usually just drive down to the end of the block and back.
and yet he was still banging martina hingis.
I did some searching just out of curiosity and found a few comments, both dating back to 2006.
One guy mentions that they are $100 more than Vantage. Aren't Vantage frames near $250?
Another guy hints that they cost about $500 a piece, but they are truly a "custom" frame. Completely custom.
Pretty interesting, but I'd never seriously consider it...
I spoke to Mr . Bosworth Senior a few years ago and He explained to me the process of getting completely custom frame . They basically work with you trying to narrow down the specs of your " perfect " racquet letting you try several demos in the process.Considering the fact that you have full control over the final product the price of 500$ is not that high . I am willing to bet that many of you spent more money trying to find your " holy grail ' of racquets the conventional way.
I really enjoyed talking to Mr. Bosworth . He made me feel very comfortable and as a bonus I got to hear from him about some of his former clients and their equipment .
Thats super cool. Except Thats still a little high for one racquet IMHO
Yep it's a Bosworth alright, it looks dead ugly to me though.
To clarify, the Bosworth racquets aren't TOTALLY custom, in the sense that there's no variation in head size, beam width and shape. He can vary weight, balance, swingweight, flex pattern, etc., but all of the racquets come from the one mold that he owns, so they all have the same size and shape. A totally custom frame would allow any head size, beam width and shape.
I have to admit, that is one ugly looking racquet.
