    Hi Guys,

    I had some time in hand and discovered a weight machine used for baking cakes/bread.

    I decided then to weigh my rackets to see how much do they actually weight after stringing and gripping them.

    I used 2 types of grip.
    Super PU (Medium thick to Thick and Strong Grap.)

    F/6u 5G Yonex FB + Thick PU grip + Ultimax 66 = 88 Grams.
    3U4G Yonex Voltric 5 + Thick PU Grip + Ultimax 66 = 97 Grams.

    4UG5 Fleet Z Force + Medium PU grip + Ultimax 66 = 93 Grams
    3UG5 Fleet Z Force + Strong grip + Ultimax 66 = 93 Grams
    3UG5 Fleet Z Force LTD + Thick PU grip + Ultimax 66 = 102 Grams

    3U5G Winex Nanotec9900 +Medium Grip + NBG99 = 103 Grams
    3U5G Gosen TI5000 + Medium Grip + NBG99 = 101 Grams


    Just for comparison and good to know that Grips and String ups the weight by 10-15 Grams at the least. The next time i were to replace my racket with another make or model, i hope the weight does not runs far from 93Grams which is very good to me at the moment.

    that's all very interesting (though nothing new, basically) but this weight says nothing about the playability. An even-balanced mid-flex racket with a total of over 100 will be much easier to swing than head-heavy stiff racket with a total of under 95g
