Vantage Tennis?
« on: February 13, 2005, 05:04:47 PM »
Anyone ever see or hear about this vantage tennis place?  This is interesting,  you cutom order your racquet.  Head size, string pattern, head heavy to head light balance system, length, etc.

I would be interested in trying one for kicks.  They were only 130 something or other, it was not dollars.  I went through the design process just for kicks.

Anyoen seen it before?

looks good.
In my opinion it lacks choice on the RA scale. Two options is a little weak. Also for any visitors to the site I have a question. Can you see if the weight is calculated with / without strings or grip?

I used to have custom made frames. I could not get the site to produce the same specs as I make them myself now.
I would be interesting to see if when you order 10 frames if they really are the same...?

I would be too.  I asked for some literature.  I found the RA scale very limited too.  2 options is VERY weak.  But for the most part it looked interesting.  I would love to try one, for free of coarse.  :)

I have never seen those racquets before and I have never seen anyone use them either.  It does not looks like something I would ever experiment with.  Looks like an interesting idea if you are having problems finding a racquet that you like.  My skeptisism is that I would want to test a racquet before I use it.  If they send you a brochure T4U let us know.  It would be nice if they would make you one for free to see if you think they are nice racquets and you get what you think you really made on the online order form.  Then maybe you could do some promotion for them on your website.

They're been some good reviews posted on the other board.  I for one emailed them last week, still no answer.  It might be a good idea but I can find stock rackets that will suit me just fine.
