    I can't tell you that because all of the rackets have string and grip on them. I guess I could just weigh some string and grip and subtract but...naw...too much hassle. :p

    900T or 700, he doesn't seems to play any differently i guess the racket doesn't really affect him much

    The interesting part is why LCW went from 900T to 900P
    obviously T need more pubilicity then P as the word "POWER" sell
    for itself, so there is a chance that he is making the switch on his
    own preference and not what yonex tells him to.
    Just kinda make me wonder what r the reason behind it

    To the best of my knowledge, LCW has not used the 900T in any tournament, only the P.. So I don't see what you mean "went from 900T".. He used to use NS8K and then switched to NS9K and then back to NS8K, before moving to 900P.

    LCW was using the AT900T early on this year, think it was the M'sia open, before switching back to the NS8k.

    Then he started using the AT900P during the Indo Open

    For me it doesn't matter because every racket I use, I add string and an overgrip. So the additional weight of the string and overgrip is constant.

    That's not consistent with my 4UG4s which are quite stiff and heavy 93 and 95 grams with string and an additional overgrip.
