Why Offer Racquets?

My answer is simple! To give you the very best performance you can get from your racquet dollar!

You are probably thinking “aren’t I getting that now from my online purchase?”

Probably not! I see a lot of racquets from online sources and what I see convinced me that you need to have another option!  The issues I see are typically poor string selection and really poor string installation.  String and stringing are very important, and you deserve better! We  offer racquets, in a limited sort of way, so you are getting what you expect!

How do I select what brands I will offer? Well, I review almost every racquet made either before or right after they are introduced and this review yields a great deal of information that is not normally known to the online consumer.

Wilson!

Some New Wilson’s

That is why you will see Head and Wilson racquets when you visit the World Headquarters of Racquet Quest. This selection does not mean other brands are not worthy of your consideration, and we are pleased to discuss all brands and offer them when appropriate.

Our racquet prices are attractive and the special service we offer adds to the value of your purchase.

Even if you just have a racquet question, we will be very pleased to help!

 

Let’s Build Some Racquets!

Building a “custom” racquet is exciting not only because of the work involved but from the “joy” of the finished product!

When I receive racquets similar to the state shown the first thing that happens is numbering and characterization so it can be tracked throughout the process.

The first piece of equipment I use is the Ereca Balance System.  Here is why.  The two (2) scale system is fast and extremely accurate.  This first “pass” tells me how much work is required to get the racquets to the customers specification.

These racquets had an average deviation of 1.69 grams!  Other specs were also very close.  Knowing this when I start the process means I can pick almost any of the racquets with confidence that I can achieve the desired “finished” specifications.

As you know I insist on swing weight as a major racquet property but this system gets me off to a great start and saves considerable time.

Each client has a specific specification they want in terms of length, swing weight, overall weight, grip size, grip material and where any modifying material, if required, will be added.

Adding string is a big factor because of the different weights of various string.  Stringing is, typically, the final step in customization if any material is under the bumper guard

Custom racquets are not only fun to build they are fun to play with!
