The new Head Speed 10th Anniversary Edition is here and whether you are a collector or serious player, or both, you need to see this model!
The all black, with some gold splashes, racquet is here in the MP and S versions, and both the same specs as the non anniversary edition which, by the way, has put a Head racquet in the top five best sellers in the US!
Typical of all Head Special Editions and Anniversary Models this racquet comes pre-strung with another set of string attached for those that don’t like the current string setup. A good move, in my opnion.
These racquets are here now so stop by and take a look at this beaitiful Anniversary Edition.
Having one celebrity in the shop is quite rare but two…that is amazing!
The World Headquarters was visited by Bill and Aleks (aka GBS)! What is also amazing is that they came in separate cars so they did have a choice! If you are in the area stop by. You may see a celabrity! Probably not but you will see the latest racquets!
Briefly, Pointy is a program that allows shoppers to enter a barcode, or Google product search online, to see if that product is available locally.
As a long time user of Square as the POS in the shop, we engaged with Pointy as a service through Square so our clients can quickly see what we have in stock. A link to our Pointy shop is below so you can take a look around and let me know what it needs to be a valuable resource for you.
Every product you see on the page was input by Racquet Quest so it is in stock at the time the shop was opened, however, the images are supplied by the software so some may not be exactly updated packaging.
If you have any questions or would like to hear about any “special offers” please call or text!
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.
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!
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!
