Depending on the specs, I may take a few of those from you. I love non mainstream brands.

Okay, so I'm going to get samples mocked up by helmet painter that I know, and I'm going to get some decals made.
Now for the all important colours!
There's going to be two samples types, so I'm looking for two colours.
This is what I was thinking.....

That's a sexy red. IMO the green has just a tad too much yellow in it, not enough blue, maybe a tad too much white in it.
Hopefully these two colors aren't to be used together?
Unless you're looking to make a chrismas special

Also the glaze coat shouldn't be clear IMO, that would cause the green to shine yellow im direct light. But that's your call. Otherwise they are very good colors.

yeah i agree. bright green on a racket is just... weird.

Nah it's not weird. It's HAWT!
I'm going to be looking at two specs in the samples.
Kanabo - Heavy hitter, head heavy. 'Kanabo' is a type of Japanese heavy club used for smashing people over the head.
Urumi - All-rounder, doubles bias, even balance. 'Urumi' is a deadly multiple bladed sword from India. Google it. It's frightening.
Colours are undecided and I'm limited in what I can do with the decals, so no complaints!
I'm just having fun at this stage.
*edit* Updated the logo, too.

So yea... If you want a unique look, the current top-bottom two tone is too standard to be unique. I like the white label part, gives it that "Porsche" high end flair to it.
Maybe experiment more with a horizontal symmetry or a diagonal symmetry when it comes to the color gradient, instead of the traditional vertical symmetry you're using right now.
Also, complementary hues make for an aesthetically striking effect, so a deep purple to contrast the green, and nice strong blue to constrast the red?
But then, that might just make your Kanabo too "Captain America/Spiderman"

Just offering some suggestions. I'm
expressing my creativity through words since I don't currently have a good graphics editor.

Yeah that's cool, thanks for playing along!
There's always a problem with being 'too unique' and there is very much a limit to what I can do with prototypes. Most [like Dink's were] are just gloss black, but I like to prototype the graphics too.
The #1 thing I want to achieve, is that I want anyone without reading a single word to know what the brand is.
That's why I like the 'White Label' band. Bold, simple, noticeable.

looks good dude. care to explain why you chose the name 'white label'?
btw you should put a small aussie flag on it too might do some good.

The white label part makes for the consistency. That's like the brand name. But then the rest needs a nice design to catch someone's eye first. Then after someone catches sight of the racket, then they see the trusty white section and say "Ah, no wonder, it's a White Label from EasyTiger. No wonder it's so stylish"

For some reason, that came to mind when thinking about names for rackets. Maybe something to do with the fact that they're all black before they're painted.
The model names, I wanted something aggressive without resorting to cliches like 'Extreme Power' and 'Nano' etc etc.
