Our Racquetball Racquet Customizer options are being offered to you because you are looking at one of our top-of-the-line racquetball racquets. You are the Players who typically want to get the maximum performance out of your racquet. We'll help you do just that by customizing it to your specs prior to shipping. In most cases we'll still get your order out the door the same day we receive it or the next business day at the latest! Please note that customized racquets can NOT be returned as they are no longer in factory condition.
GRIP SIZE SELECTION - RACQUETBALL RACQUET
Racquetball racquets are typically available in two grip sizes: The smallest is called SS (3-5/8") and the largest is XS (3-7/8 or 3-15/16").
When you hold a racquetball racquet, you want your fingertips to wrap around the grip and be touching your palm. 90% of our customers use the smaller grip size. Remember: The SMALLEST grip size you can comfortably hold without your fingertips crushing into your palm will facilitate the best racquetball wrist snap!
CUSTOM GRIP OPTIONS
Many players who wear a glove when they play prefer a one-piece rubber grip for more tackiness and greater durability. (Not so good without a glove!) Read more about Racquetball Grip Reviews on our blog. Our Regrip Options include:
- Python Grip** - Textured grooves for less slippage, *see install note below
- Ektelon Original Grip - thinnest rubber grip on the market for smallest feel in the hand, textured
- Ektelon Vision Grip - Squishy, gummy like grip. Not textured; the only truly tacky grip of the bunch.
- Others - We have many grip choices in stock. Call us to discuss options or request a grip you don't see here.
When you buy one of our high-end racquets, you may see these grip upgrade options listed with the racquet. If you want to upgrade from the factory, wrap-on grip, it will not delay your order, and the installation labor is free. You pay just the upgrade amount listed with each grip, which covers the cost of the grip. Please Note: if you order your racquet with a grip customization mentioned above, it is not returnable as it is no longer in "Factory" condition.
Please note: **Python Grip - has unfortunate "rings" at the base of the grip that are supposed to help you keep a better grip on the racquet. However, the rings add significant size to the butt of the racquet, so our standard Python installation includes removal of the rings for the smallest feel in your hand. If you want the rings to remain, please note this at the "comment" area at check out. Please also mention whether you want the rings flush with or hanging off the end of the handle. For instance, say "Python rings on, flush with bottom of handle".
RACQUET GUARD TAPE
This is a lightweight adhesive tape that we can apply across the racquet's bumper guard (on the racquet's head) to provide an additional layer of protection. Although a racquet's bumper guard is a replaceable part, the tape may prolong the life of your bumper guard. To most players, the weight of the tape is imperceptible.
"BELL BAND" RUBBER BAND DAMPENER
Most racquetball racquets come from the factory with a dampener installed in the strings. The factory dampeners are not the best, and occasionally fall out during play and do not dampen string vibration very well. Our special rubber band, tied in just the right way dampens string vibration very well in any racquet and stays put!
