I just know something about the european version, I am not sure if the us is different.

I just can remember

Beam width: 21 mm
Composition: 70% graphite, 30% fiberglass

I havenīt played with it but did with wilson hammer 7.5 which is quite similar(95 headsize, 20 mm beam, similar weight(I think about 290 g unstrung, but I am not sure) maybe a bit lighter than 8.2 but with enough mass in head to be swingweight pretty high, it has stronger cross section like 8.2 so it doesnīt flex with fiberglass so much like other hammers old 6.2, 7.2 and is pretty resilient with generous sweetspot. Never played with a racquet with such a generous sweetspot for this headsize(tried many racquets)

Just weighted the one from my mother and strung weight is 298 gram. Because strings count for 15 gram that would be unstrung weight 283 gram. Because the following hold

283 gram = 9.982 531 231 85 ounce
284 gram = 10.017 805 193 8 ounce

and wilson is likely to use non-weird weights I say unstrung weight is 10.0 ounce

Sring pattern is 16 x 19.
