What's the actual weight of karakal bn-60?
I just bought a karakal bn60 and put it on a precise scale. It shows 71g. Is it a fake racket? Anyone ever measured the weight of the frame?

If you really want the lightest racket. Here are some options
Yonex ArcSaber FlashBoost - 73 Grams/Lower BP than BN60
Victor LightFighter 7000 - 74 Grams/Lower BP than FB
Apacs FeatherWeight 200 - 69 Grams/Lower BP than 7000

I have a arcsaber fb. After string and overgrip, the two weigh almost the same. I thought bn60 should be lighter since karakal claims it is the lightest frame in the world.

Karakal measures differently from the standard method we are familiar with, so I wouldn't expect 60 grams. Mid 70s with string is what I'd expect. I think Karakal weighs w/o the grip or something like that.

Yeah the wet weight of my mtec 70 was mid 80s, so mid 70s would make sense for the bn60

It is a bit misleading and it throws many people off when looking at Karakal rackets and comparing specs vs other manufacturers.

I have Bn60 and ArcFB. Bn60 is definitely lighter than ArcFB. Whatever is the weight, doesnt change the fact that is one of the lightest ones around.
