Hello,

Does anyone know the weight of a "Wilson Power Holes 6.4" racquet?

I know its an old racquet.

If anyone is replying can they say whether the weight is strung or unstrung.

Thank you.

Thanks for reply.

So is this weight strung or unstrung?

9.6 ounces / 272 grams

Is it an unwritten rule that weights of tennis racquets are always quoted unstrung.

This is the unstrung weight of my current racquet
10.4 oz / 295g

so my current racquet is heavier.

I currently have wrist pains playing a forehand and I wondered if the heavier racquet was the cause.

The problem with heavier racquets, is the way people swing them. A common mistake made is people that move from a light racquet to a heavy one tend to still swing all out and roll their wrist to generate topspin. A heavier frame with a slower, smooth swing actually can be better for the old arm. Remember to let the heavier racquet do the work.

That makes the weight difference even more dramatic.

Allowing 20g for strings the Flexpoint is over 40g heavier than the Wilson!

Maybe my Wilson was too light for me, lets hope so.
