Hey!
I read somewhere that the vantage specs are unstrung specs. Is that right? If so what would change if I strung it. Also what specs would i make the vantage if i wanted the make it a 28 in "safin setup" of travellerjam:

So I next assumed a stringbed weight of 17g, giving a swigweight of ~365, a balance of 12.68", and a static weight of 353g (12.45 oz). The grades:

Serves: A (very explosive, an excellent serving weapon)
Groundstrokes: A+ (passing shots are too easy with this racquet)
Volleys: A

So this tells me that I had pretty much nailed the Safin setup. This racquet is so incredible on groundstrokes that it blows away any previous frame or mod I have tried. It's amazing what a difference a little fine tuning can do![/I]

I want to make it the safin setup without adding lead if that is possible.

Thanks

well w/ vantage i'd go with a 90 in. head, around 12 oz (unstrung), a better idea is to email paul at vantage, if you give him some specs you want he'll come up with a good code

your in luck, because Safin uses Head Prestige Mid, which is 90" head (actually about 89.5")... and Vantage have a 90"!

Also (though I am not sure of the exact SW) with a 28" 90" I'd guess your swing weight is around 350-360g mark... but your best talking to Vantage about that. I know because I had a 27.5" 90", and the SW was around 340-350g... the extra length really adds SW to it.

As for the rest, i'm not sure... the 63RA for sure, Head grip shape with leather.

Well, I know a few people that have rung up Vantage and they have been ok with adding more weight to the frames, such as extra ounce.
