The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest, LLC was happy to welcome Randy St. Pierre and Henry Hamels for a visit!
Randy is a member of the Dunlop Stringing Team and is from the UK and Henry is the principal of String MD in Florida! Randy has been stringing racquets for quite a while and is always a source of good information…and he bought lunch!
Randy lives in a beautiful part of England so we are all invited to his house when the weather is better…is that right Randy?
Randy remembers stringing for a young player named Emma at a tournament in Nottingham when young Emma was in the 300’s world wide! Look at her now! Was it Randy or something else? I wonder!
Anyway it was great fun having these guys here and they are welcome anytime as are all of you reading this!
The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest is very happy to present the latest addition to our headquarters!
My daughter and her family that live in Columbus presented me with the iconic Columbus, Indiana “C” bike rack recently! This bike rack is something I have wanted for a while!
In case you don’t know, Columbus, Indiana is well known for the many architectural buildings and pieces by many very famous people!
The bike was donated by Davids Cycle World and painted by me! A very close inspection of the paint job should be avoided!
Anyway, we are very happy to have this addition to the World Headquarters!
It is raining today and it felt like a good time to talk about “string bed stiffness”…so let’s go!
This quick video will make a plea to you tennis players to demand more from your racquet technician so you are getting the most from your equipment.
Thank you for watching!
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!
