Some Time Off!

We are taking a few days off!

We are spending some time with one of our daughters and grandson…finally!

We will be out of the World Headquarters Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday!  February 5th the through the 9th, 2023

Thank you!

 

Head…just when you thought it couldn’t get any better

Well, we think it just got better!

The Head Radical has always been one of the best performance racquets available and doesn’t require much in the way of annual changes!

You can order yours now for the release date of February 9, 2023

We think this new group is right on target!  Adding Auxetic in the throat brings this series into the overall success of the Auxetic component!

We will be doing full reviews very soon, but in the meantime, take a look at these new Radicals!

The Team is the new “S” in the Radical Series!  Based on our initial testing, we think this model has a trick up its sleeve!

Clamp Riser…your friend!

We are re-introducing our Clamp Riser!

Clamp Riser Set

Why?

The Clamp Riser eliminates the need to pull two main strings to start a string job!  There is really no need to use that procedure.

Without going into a lengthy reason for that, suffice it to say the Clamp Riser will be your friend!

Any stringing machine with long, rotating string clamps is too low to capture the string properly for the first tension pull.  The Clamp Riser fits under the clamp and…raises it!

The clamp will now hold the string securely at the proper height for the first pull, one string at a time!

Clamp Riser Babolat

 

 

The Babolat Racket Station can use the 20mm height riser side, as seen here, and many other machines can probably use that height as well.

Clamp Riser Baiardo

We have found that Baiardo prefers the 30mm height, as seen here.  The riser height must be enough to allow the clamp base to “lock”.

 

The Clamp Riser is sold as a set of two (2) to justify the shipping cost!  $17.99 per set.

 Purchase now

Charges for shipping outside the US will be added to the total cost minus the US shipping charge.

 

 

 

The Same but Different!

How can two totally different things be the same in so many ways?

Here is a good example:

Wilson Sensation 16, natural v Wilson Sensation Plus 17, black.

Same but Different!

Looking a the stress/strain portion of the graph, it is nearly impossible to see any difference!

Both strings exhibit good elongation and elasticity.

Finally, when it comes to UTS the Sensation is a little stronger, as you would expect, for a 1.33mm string.

The Sensation Plus measures 1.26mm!  So, the UTS is pretty good!

So what’s the deal?  

If you have been using Sensation but would like a black, thin string from Wilson simply use Sensation Plus!

 

 

Don’t be Beanie-less!

RQ Beanies!

Don’t be without a beanie!


Bag your beanie at Racquet Quest World Headquarters while supplies last. These are awesome!

Don’t be without a beanie for your chilly early morning tennis that is coming soon!  Yes, even in Florida!

If you can’t stop by the World Headquarters we can send it.  Just tell us where!

Bag a Beanie!
