    Hi guys out there. Any idea where i can get custom made rackets? I know there are plentiful out there in the web, but all those have MOQ. I only want to make 2 pcs. Just for some memorandum purposes. Anyone knows of any place that i can do that? :)

    on Forza's website, they came up with allowing you to put any words on the shaft but still the same color scheme of the Forza racquet you choose to customize. Hope that helps.

    I think you are thinking something alone this line - look no further than Winex's Havenly Sword (for her) and Dragon Saber (for him)! :D:p

    No. They were a special edition release by Winex (a Taiwan brand racket). I was meant to provide some 'insipiration' on what you can do with the shaft. :p

    I think it more meaningful to customize the racket with additional word statements if........,U just won a memorable tournamnet,or something which is nostalgic by using that particulars racket,or for a gift to GF/BF,other than that is not so necessary.

    I will suggest you to buy a racquet you like, take it to an auto (car) paint shop and ask them how much for a custom paint job. Yes, some will lok at you funny or laugh at you, however, that is the best option in Singapore.

    I don't think printing your name or changing the color scheme is true customization. It is no more than a cosmetic makeover. True customization will involve a change of playing characteristics of a racquet that is very different from the original, which will mean different dimensions and different specs that are not merely superficial or cosmetic.
