    Got My Ultra today and I'm surpised at how LIGHT it is.

    yes You heard me... light. It's about the same weight as my current Sp -9000 and is a little less head heavy - though that will likey change a bit when I re-grip to smaller grip.

    The shaft is ever so slightly thicker than my SP, but the joint is actually thicker on my SP.

    The Ultra is a hair stiffer, which is funny given the SPs were listed as mid-flex when they came out abut 7 years ago.

    It's heavy for today's standards Sir, not 7 years ago. :p Also, I didn't send you a heavy one. I sent you one that was of average weight and BP. Have you actually played with the racket yet? You'll see it's stiff. :)

    The video is nothing special. The only thing interesting is watching the digital read out go to 46+lbs. (10% pre-stretch) and coming back to 42lbs. :p
