TW can you checked the Listed 312g strung weight you have listed with the Becker V1 MP. I just received mine today and it weighs 295g (strung). The listed weight on the frame list 285g, so a strung weight of 295g seems appropriate. I believe your 312g listed weight maybe incorrect.

Robkat, what's your grip size? It might be dependent on the grip size.

My Becker V1 MP weighs 309 grams with string (Technifibre Multifeel 17), Becker dampener, and one Yonex Supergrap. TW listed 312 grams is on the high side.

My grip size is 4 1/2. I think my question is why does TW have 312g (strung) and the frame as well as the BB website list the frame as 285g, which I presume to be unstrung. A difference of 27g, almost an once, to account for the difference between strung and unstrung.

I added some lead around the collar, an over grip and the Becker dampener, so I have it at 309g now.

We measured 4-5 racquets from the first batch we received and posted the average spec.

We will check recent racquets to see if they are coming in lighter.
