i've used scales to measure my racquets...
three carlton airblade superlites, with bg66 and bg85 hybrid strings, and yonex supergrap over the original grip, weighs in at 86g.
the claimed weight for these racquets is 81g from carlton.
a cab21sp with bg66 and bg85, and supergrap as well, scales in at 96g.
weight claims by manufacturers never include strings and grip.
the oem grip on the airblades are rather thin, almost as thin as the supergrap themselves, so should be quite light. so the two grips, plus the strings can equal to about 5g, reasonably.
i can try stripping the grip and putting them on the scale again when the strings break.
and black knight has a few racquets that are new, under 80g. the ghost has been mentioned here on a few occasions, and is one of them.

li-ning wingstorm 650 mine is 75 grams
Not too sure if this thread is still active but I have just bought a li-ning wingstorm 650 and I weighed it using my digi scales and it came out at 75grams even with an overgrip. its a well built racket and i think it is sometimes more responsive and controls better than my nanospeed 7700. It may not be the lightest in the world but it nearly is and it defo packs a punch! A great all rounder I personally think

is karakal bn60 the lightest now?
11-15-2012, 09:28 PM #28
the lightest racket i've used is the HL K-Power 75. it says it's <75g, can handle tension up to 26lbs with a flexible shaft. it's useless for me because my swing speed is nowhere near lightning, so i can generate zero power with the racket. tho it feels very very very light, it also feels solid for me. then a few years ago i played in the summer smash tournament hosted by SGVBC in LA and i saw a C level player play with the same racket, but got tremendous power!!!
i have retired the racket since it's no longer in production.
with all these threads about lighthead rackets, i'm so tempted to get the ns9900 2u because the light weight will give me quicker response, but 2u will give me (hopefully) the weight i need for power?

unfortunately it doesn't work that way.
the swing weight of a 2U NS9900 in fact is very heavy. even heavier than a VTZF.

Wow..why was that?
11-16-2012, 12:11 AM #31
Probably due to weight balance...

The lightest is Apacs Feather Weight 200 is 7U
this mean 65g(100 - 7(5) )
