I bought 2 NTour Two 105s from different Tennis shops as I wanted them in 4 3/8s.

After getting the second one I noticed I started favoring one over the other.
So I had the both restrung the same and put new grips on both.

Then I noticed one of my 4 3/8s is actually closer to 4 1/2. It's significant when measuring.

Now I know why the major pro's have their rackets redone by a racquet "perfect specs" company. (Not sure what their called)

1. Wilson is so famous for their quality control.
2. Make sure both grips are done with similar tightness.

I have the exact same problem with my two Pure Storm.

Although they have the exact same weight, the grip size are different !

They're both 4 3/8 (written on the butt-cap) but one is in fact 4 1/2. I discovered that when I removed the grip.

Go figure ...

Next time, I'll buy Fischer or Yonex to avoid this kind of situation.

I had both racquet's re-strung and re-gripped by a pro. Just after that I discovered the discrepancy.

I had not weighed them but I am now.

I have the exact same problem with my two Pure Storm.

Although they have nearly the same weight (+/- 8g), the balance and the grip size are different !

They're both 4 3/8 (written on the butt-cap) but one is in fact 4 1/2. I discovered that when I removed the grip.

The "4 1/2" is more headlight and is the one I favor in competitive play.

Go figure ...

Next time, I'll buy Fischer or Yonex to avoid this kind of situation.

Both mine weight 10.6oz. How did you do the head weight measurement?
