Does anyone know where to buy something that'll allow me to measure the weight of my racquet in ounces [not lbs]?

I got mine from Staples - it's a postal scale that goes up to 5 lbs. and can display either ounces or grams. Ounces are displayed down to tenths.

What is a scale? LOL j/k. I think most office supply stores would have them for mail and what not.

Tennis warehouse also mentions one in this article

just get a postal scale. They usually have both ounces and grams.

There is a company named My Weigh that makes great cheap scales. Just search for them, I don't think you can go wrong with their stuff.

WORD OF CAUTION!! When you get this 4n4l retentive about your game, like the rest of us in this post, using a scale is guaranteed to lead to: lost matches, frustration, antisocialism, and drug use. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!! ;)

lol, I usually have a winning record. it's just that the losses i have now aren't taken so gracefully ...which leads to side effect 2, 3, and 4. :shock:

In all seriousness, a scale will help you fine tune your game. Get one and you can even weigh your pasta before a match like me!
