    Wink Customizing/Personalizing your rackets for fun?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for fun ideas to make my own racket and bag appear different from the others and give it a personal "touch"

    So apart from the obvious (different color strings, grips, stencil art), what do you guys do, if anything, to make your rackets and bags stand out? Pics would be great as well

    professional player personalize their bags very often.

    partly because the whole team usually use the same exact bag model and it will be impossible to identify them without any special tags or other things. many players hang stuff toys or other little decoration on their bag. LD once draw big graphics and his name using a permanent marker on his bag.

    Dip your racket in glue then sprinkle glitter all over the place. It'll be sparkly.

    mds nl,

    did you strip the paint or did you just paint over the original paint? what type of paint did you use? how's the durability?

    I used a little bit of sandpaper to rougher the surface.
    For paint, i used a spraycan, fast drying metallic paint.
    I has lots of sparkles....

    Durebility is good, except for the parts where blue en silver paint cross, but thats because of bad tape that i used.
