Come on guys, chill out.
I mean seriously, D-Squad? Man I'd be proud too...not.
Dude nothing wrong with Dunlop racquets. I personally almost signed with them to get a good deal on their 200 series racquets. If I didn't find the Pure Storm Ltd. I very well might have gone with the Aerogel 200 at the time.
Is there some history between Babotennis and Mcutlize?
No but he brags all the time and tells people they aren't good enough to get a sponsorship when he is proud of D-Squad? Look at some of his other posts on this forum.
i completely agree with babotennis, he acts like an egotistical jerk
Thank you Ookie...he bashes people for not being ranked highly, yet he is like 50 in the Pacific Northwest! He wouldn't last a second in any of the East Coast tournaments.
DSquad is so easy to get, even I got offered it (high 80s in New England). It's not that hard
Yeah T1000, they are probably the easiest company to get sponsored by. That or ProKennex or Avery.
Trust me I've read some of his posts.
Do you have a players package from Babolat?
Nvm I just read your sig.
Yeah, I'm 9 in my section.
What section or in what area of the US?
Im on the East Coast...dont wanna say my section cause of security issues
I was JW because there's a guy towards the top of my section that uses the same racquets, but I think he has more then 3 frames. Not sure.
what's his name? or what section if you dont mind?
don't forget mantis, kirschbaum, and genesis
I'm talking strictly racquets.
Yeah I used that one and a few others, but the one I posted earlier was the one I got a response from first.
I wish i could get luxilon. lol
Yeah, I'd like that or Technifibre strings only, string is such a pain in the butt to pay for.
Thanks for this thread. It is very helpfull!
are you talking about abrums or frueh?
Look out for hybrids from MANTIS strings coming out soon,
theres a racket as well!
Not all D-Squad players are jerks! I love the Dunlops personally.
You know quite a bit about Mantis
Great!¡ wen will the rackets and hybrids be released and I wonder where we would be able to demo them
so can mantis take place of my babolat super fine play as a syn gut string?
is there anyone I can contact or email to find out if I can get some sort of package from wilson
Are you top 75 in the nation?
Yeah dtl has a. Good point...wilson if tough...one of youe bets would be to go through a sponsored coach or teacher or head pro at a club that sells wilson
No but I finished 26 in florida at the end of 2009, so I was thinking that may help because I'm in a good section. I just need to get like 2 rackets for like 300 nothing really big
^ I live in Florida too and they have a store called matchpoint tennis they sell all their new racquets for $143 plus tax so if you have that store near you check it out
We're going to hold the hybrids till next year unfortunately as all the focus is now on the racket...I've got possible specs:
315g strung, 69 RA strung, 100 headsize, 16x19 string pattern, swing weight tbc, tapered beam.
Also negotiating with suppliers about gut!
Hey can someone tell me about athletic DNA. What deals or packages do they give? WHat ranking do you need? I only have like 2 pairs of shorts so it would be helpful
Go to their website and you can apply for sponsorship. If you are a junior a year end ranking of 500 in the nation is the minimum requirement.
do i use my ranking from usta or tennis recruiting.net?
USTA because it is by age division
also you could be in the 40 section range for minimum..... anyone have info on pacific sponsorships or ttk or duc?
Maybe it's just me, but I snapped power poly at 48 lbs. in about 40 minutes. I must say, I was dissapointed...
i still think they are a good company because the durability might need some work but the spin feel comfort was great! also some natural gut is coming out....
how did it play in that time?
I've never used a poly strung so low
Good control, low power, but below average feel...
I just wanted to let you guys know that MANTIS now has a USA distributor!
His name is Paul Zalatoris and he has worked at Wilson and Tecnifibre previously.
His contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org
i got athletic dna with a year end ranking of 49. Today was also the last day to send in the contracts for the spring pack which included the hoodie which wont be sold
haha this is pretty brutal
Those who are "sponsored" by Mantis, what do you recieve from them and for how much money in USD (American currency) ?
