If our mesures are concordant, that would means the difference between 3U and 4U is only of balance, not weight.

My rackets are generally 100g total weight for 3U. So a 97.7g 4U TK6000 makes sense since it still has the plastic wrap on the handle which is probably ~1g, so my 4U would be about 96.7g. I use the full length of G09 RKEP along with the grip tape.
My 4U TK6000 measured 41g head weight strung with the head on the scale and the handle's edge approximately 1 inch off the table. For reference my friend's 3U VTZF bought in Beijing measured 45.3g strung head weight, but he doesn't use RKEP grips. My VT80PG measured 44.2g strung head weight and with RKEP G09.

^ Those are some crazy head wts!
Btw the 2 layers of plastic wrap on Victor racket handle weigh 2.8g!

I don't understand why people keep the plastic on.
But then again I take the factory grip off and bin it, so -

^ You'd be surprised at what else some people still keep their plastic wrap on, like TV remote controls, lamp shades, etc.

Actually I've been known to cut the cones off rackets, so clearly resale is not something I'm thinking of. lolz

Remeasured my TK6000 4U: 42.2g head weight, and 95.1g total weight. I can't re-measure other rackets I listed since I returned them to their owners.
visor, for comparison, I remeasured my XP70 is 95.3g total weight with G11 grip and NS30 (0.70mm). Head weight is 41.3g and ~291mm bp. Which if I recall correctly is similar to the one you measured.

total weight 95.1g? quite heavy

Haha, now I have JJS too! Haven't played yet, but some first impressions: feels much head-lighter than my li-nings ) Definitely a bit head-lighter than BSLYD.
Wet BP (strung with NS95 and with 0.6 overgrip) is 296mm.
The racket is rather stiff, maybe a bit stiffer than BSLYD.
Swings fast, feels quite good, should be excellent for my doubles game.

dang, wrong topic ( so many of them and every one has a discussion about jjs )

hmmm how does this racket compare to vt70?
sound like a similar racket with higher bp?
