Head Visit

The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest was pleased to have Erika and Federic from Head visit recently. Erika is with Head in Phoenix and Frederic is from the Headquarters in Kennelbach, Austria.

Team Head player, Jack Anthrop was on hand to provide a players perspective.

The purpose of the visit was to discuss a “grassroots” program that can effectively address, and contribute to the growth of tennis worldwide.

I was commenting on racquets and string selections, of course, when it dawned on me that Head has done an extraordinary job in designing racquets that have vast player appeal! A prime example is the Adaptive Series, introduced about a year ago, consisting of a “Speed” and  “Instinct” model.

Head Adaptive Length Extenders

This series can go from a lightweight standard length racquet to a more substantial, longer racquet in a few minutes! Plus this series can be either a 16 x 19 or a 16x 16 string pattern!

This concept is valid, and one that allows players to maximise the performance of the racquet. And the implementation is easy. Some changes can be made at courtside!

So, while I believe more can be done to get players into the correct racquet, the Head Adaptive Series is very close to being perfect!

Opportunity Knocks Just Five More Times!

We are down to the last five (5) Volkl player’s racquets that can be built to your specifications!

Each of these racquets will cut to length, up to 28 inches, a 3 or 4 grip pallet, Custom yellow butt cap with RQ Racquet Technology insert, a Volkl DNX grip, or an additional charge Volkl black or tan leather grip, finished with a white or black grip band.

Overall weight and swing weight will be to your specifications and will be permanent unless otherwise specified.

These are beautiful retro “player’s” racquets and do not incorporate the Volkl “Sensor” grip insert technology but do have the vibration damping layer on the shaft.

Each racquet made to your length and finished is $200.00, unstrung.

For these five (5) remaining racquets only, select Volkl V-Icon natural gut for $50.00!

Please let us know if you have other stringing requests.
