    That's a deadlink, and what are you trying to say?

    While Yonex took pains to make a light weight racquet, the grip and string material weigh another 20 gm or so.

    It is normal for a 3U racquet to weigh at around 105gm. Even if you get a 3U racquet with the barest minmum weight, say 85gm, you have to add another 4-5 gm for the string and another 12-18gm for a sizeable overgrip. The static balance point may change but the pick-up weight or swingweight change is very minimal.

    I do not have. I just stumbled upon my company's weighing machine.

    I have seen a super thick overgrip by BlueStar which will certainly weights more than 10g+ easily and a big puffy and long ribbon towel grip which is also more than 10g+.

    Some grips are just heavy......different materials and thickness.
