Category Archives: Full Custom Racquets
In addition to our commitment to full custom racquets, we also believe in racquets that have been pushed aside by newer models just because it is the thing to do each year!
Of course, there can be material and design changes to racquets that make them desirable and that is always a good thing but maybe not every year! Our experience has been that a typical consumer will use a racquet for about three (3) years. But we also know that there are those players that want the very latest of everything!
We know the Head Speed Graphene Touch is an extraordinary tennis racquet! The shared hole string pattern was around for a short time but it is a good pattern…so we have some of those!
The Head Prestige Tour Graphene 360+ is another incredible tennis racquet that should not be overlooked even though the Auxetic Prestige series is here. The Prestige Tour features a 99 square inch head size with an 18×19 string pattern. This is a real “players” racquet, to use the common descriptive, although anyone can play with this racquet. We have these!
The Yonex V-Core without the VDM is another example of a good racquet being replaced before its time, and the same goes for the V-Core Pro 97 and 100! Some players prefer the feedback of the non-VDM racquets. We have those.
The previous version of the Wilson Ultra 100 is preferred by some due to the grip pallet configuration and construction.
So what is the point, here?
Very simply it is to let everyone know that there is life after new models by opting for an older model, and, letting those that prefer previous models know that some are available. These racquets will not be “dumped”, they are too good for that!
Of course, there are not many of the “special” racquets so use the “Easy Order” tab to let us know you are thinking about one or more!
Happy New Year!

These are limited in quantity and require complete customization and assembly to create a full custom racquet for you. If you are interested please let us know so we can begin the specification conversation. We have designed an “order” format however it does not allow for the conversation necessary to create your racquet, so…
Use the “Easy Order” tab to get started.
We have a few “full custom” racquets remaining and when these are gone there will not be any more until later in 2022!
So, if you are interested in a “special” racquet for yourself or a tennis player you like, now is the time!
We have Head Extreme Tour, Head Extreme MP, Gravity Pro, and Head Speed MP in very limited numbers. These racquets can be configured in lengths up to 27.75 inches, in any grip size from 1/4 to 5/8 ( 2 to 5), and any weight and swing weight. Either leather or synthetic grips are available.
Of course, custom stringing can be added. All orders must be received by December 13th if you need your full custom racquet for a gift.
Please use the Easy Order tab on this site if you have any questions or want to place your order. You may text us at 407.491.4755
Racquet Quest, LLC has for years been doing the extensive evaluation of racquets and string for the benefit of our client’s customization requirements.
Now we are making this evaluation “program” available to anyone that wants to dig deeper into the workings of the string in the racquet!
This is serious stuff and requires significant resources but it is worth it!
Please contact us of you would like to take advantage of our evaluation program!
Prince! What can you say about the brand that “normalized” over sized racquets!
So, instead of talking about “what was” we will talk about “what is!” And “what is” is exciting, I think! With so many really good tennis racquets to choose from why would you choose a Prince racquet? With this review we will explore the reasons you may want to consider it!
THE PRINCE PHANTOM 107G
If this racquet had a high gloss finish and some green lines instead of the current matt finish you could not tell it from the original Prince Graphite. In other, words it looks terrific.
The beam tapers slightly from about 17.5mm at the top of the grip up to about 21mm at the tip, but by just looking you would say it is a straight beam design. The proportions of the racquet are “classic” and the “torsion bar” in the throat contributes to that classic look.
And speaking of classic, the grip shape and the “torsion resistance system” at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions are classics!
So, take a look at the other specs of this racquet and if you like what you see come by at take it for a “demo”
