Why “demo” a Racquet?
We have had this discussion before, but it needs repeating periodically!
Why? Because players are not, in some cases, getting what they want but thought they were. And whose fault, or oversight, is that? The racquet dealer, the player, advertising, or just bad luck?
I say it is the “demo” process in general! As we have discussed before the demo racquet your receive from online or even a local store is probably not set up for you! So you are “demoing” something that may not be even close to what you want or need! This can be costly!
Probably more costly than demoing a racquet that is set up for you! It will cost at least one stringing of the string of your choice…your choice, not anyone else’s choice! The tension will be what you want, not anyone else. The weight and swing weight will be set up for you, not anyone else…so you see where this is going! Spending $50.00 may save you $100’s if a “poor” selection is made!
After you have had the demo racquet set up for you it is important that you try it as many times as possible, but at least three (3) sessions.
The objective of a demo program is to get the correct racquet for you so take advantage of the “set up” opportunity!
