    These are reduced on the StrengthPro website at the moment to 29.99 with free delivery (in UK). I couldn't resist trying one out at that price

    As mentioned, the price has come down to GBP29.99 from GBP49.99. which by all measures is a great deal for anyone who is looking for a training racket.

    Has anyone had any recent experience of ordering from these people?

    Placed order 5 days ago, sent paypal payment, got paypal confirmation, but no order confirmation or delivery information from the strength pro.

    Received the racket. Well packaged, fast delivery and comes with racket case.

    A confirmation of order/delivery would be helpful, but they responded to emails in a timely manner.
    Grip disintergrated in my hand, but for the price, it doesn't matter.

    I just picked up one of these and should have paid more attention to how it was strung before I cut the strings to replace them with something more substantial.

    My factory grip also disintergrated in a matter of minutes of practice swings.

    I don't suppose anyone has the pattern for these handy? I can't find anything on the web site.

    Looking at mine it seems a little unusual compared to other rackets I've done. It's 1 piece, 20M x 22C. The short side is tied at 9T, the long at 8B. Skip 8T/10T/12T and 9B/11B when doing the mains. Start the crosses at 8T. There are no shared holes, which I've not come across before. Let me know if that's not clear enough!

    Hello,
    Writing from Paris, so my English will sometimes be approximative, sorry about that.
    I am interested in purchasing an heavy training racket in order to mainly improve the power of my smashes (and other strokes) and also to be more comfortable for drives, meaning increasing speed and accuracy of racket head positioning.

    So i have a few questions:
    - Are SP training rackets better than these from other brands models like Apacs W-150 and W-180 (150g and 180g)?
    - I currently string my Z-Speeds at 26.5 lbs. If i get an SP do i have to get to 29 or 30 lbs?
    - Do i need both 140g and 160g rackets to improve the two parts of my game i am expecting to? I guess the SP 160 would be for my power and strength and the SP140 for drives, fast game and accuracy, right?
    - What if i choose an Apacs 180g training racket?

    Thank you for your help.

    SP training rackets are very good. They are as good as any other decent training racket on the market today. I highly recommend them.

    Be careful with the Apacs. I had the W200 in the past and all they did was add lead tape to the handle to bring it up to the required weight.

    Allright, thank you.
    Any idea if i need to get both SP 140 and SP 160, or the SP 160 will do the job for all i want to improve?
