High Strung does not carry an inventory of tennis racquets, but we are able to help individuals in finding discontinued racquets. We have access to a weekly email that is send to all USRSA (United States Racquet Stringers Association) members that lists tennis racquets that people are looking for. We can use this service to request tennis racquets that are out of production, and since they are being supplied through other tennis professionals, there is a much less likely chance that the racquet will be a FAKE. Many of the more popular racquets made by companies like Babolat, Wilson, and Head, that are sold on eBay are cheap knockoffs. If you think you can tell the difference between a real and a fake tennis racquets, look at the following article from the Racquet Sports Industry (RSi):
In our years of stringing we have had our share of fake racquets brought to us. They typically are obviously lighter and of inferior quality. It is never fun to inform (usually a new customer) that the racquet they just brought to us is a cheap knockoff and will not play at all like the racquet they had intended to purchase. Basically, stick to purchasing from reputable local or on-line stores and you will be OK.
If you are interested in working with us to find you a particular new or used tennis racquet, please give us a call, and we can see what we can do for you.
