Babolat Tennis Equipment
The first and original inventor of natural gut tennis strings, Babolat, knows a little something about stringing racquets and the machines that do it. Since 1875, Babolat has been leading the tennis world in all aspects of the game and in 1981 Babolat came out with their first electric stringing machine, “The Exclusive.” Things have changed a little since that first machine hit the market.
Babolat Sensor Dual Stringing Machine
In the summer of 2000, Babolat introduced its Sensor line of tennis racquet stringing machines, including the Babolat Sensor Dual tennis racquet stringing machine. The revolutionary mounting clamps on this machine allow easier access to the racquet holes through strategically placed cutouts in the clamps themselves. The 5 language display and the adjustable aluminum base easily make the Babolat Sensor stringing machine top of the market. Shops who provide customers with restringing services can find no better machine. Wow your customers by stringing their racquets with the Babolat Sensor, the machine preferred by the Pros.
Babolat Star 5 Stringing Machine
Roving, Pro stringers may find that the Sensor is unmanageable as it is not easily transported. Babolat’s solution to this dilemma is the Babolat Star 5 tennis racquet stringing machine, the highly praised successor to the Star 3 and Star 4. Released in 2004, this lighter weight model features the same easy access clamp system that makes the Sensor number 1 for tournament use, but it lacks some of the bulkier features.
Babolat Racket Diagnostic Center
Racquet performance and injury prevention depend on the individual specs of the racquet and the playing style of the one holding the racquet. The Babolat Racket Diagnostic Center gives you the specs you need to determine if the racquet you have is the one you need. Professional players have been known to recognize within ounces the difference between two racquets. This is especially important when selecting a lightweight racquet. Determining if the weight is carried in the head or the handle can mean the difference between a consistent stroke and a bad case of tennis elbow. Pro players and experts agree that a heavy racquet is not a bad thing. The weight of the racquet helps put force behind the ball when you haven’t enough time for a long stroke. The racquet diagnostic can help determine if your racquet is head heavy with a light handle, which is not good for new players, or if it is head light with a heavier handle, which is more conducive to a healthy swing.
Tennis racquet stringing machines and racquet diagnostic centers que up your stick just the way you like it and owning your own machines can mean endless customizations.
