Don't know the swingweights (D'oh!), but I use Volkl C10 Pro 98's that weigh from 12.6 to 13 oz and also Prince NXG mids that are also around 13 oz. My racquets are typically balanced around 10 pts. headlight.

Wow! That's a lot more/higher swingweight than even Nadal's racquet!:)I believe Nadal's stock frame (if he actually uses a stock one) comes in at about about the mid 320's for SW. With the a added 17-18 grams in the bumper area, his swing weight is speculated to be at from 365 - 370s. Seems pretty feather weight for him though -- he's jacked.

Taylor Dent's setup is up there as well. He's in the 400s.

I suppose those guys can handle the high SW, since they're strong enough. I on the other hand can get away with a high SW since I play against amatuers on public courts and tournaments, so I don't really get caught being late in the the swing setup.

By asking about swingweight don't you mean the "weight" of the racquet. Without access to a RDC machine which I doubt most people posting have, you can not determine your racquet swingweight.

No, Im asking swingweight specificly. You don't need a RDC machine to find out SW just look under racquet specifications on TW, they are readily available. Thats why all the posters here know their SW. Im surprised you didn't know that already.

That's what's great abot TW -- they actually measure the SW of most frame they sell and list thse specs.

Also (not telling you directly) there are things called racquet calculators to estimate SW measurements after mods -- they are very precise, as long as your input numbers (mass to be added and precise location) are accurate.

Lastly, people (at lease that I know) do have their frames measured on RDC. TW will do it for you. I happen to live in Cali, so not much of a problem getting to TW's shop. I'm guessing that you could send in your frame to them to have them measure it though (will have to check back on that one).

If you add lead tape to your racquet like I have I can not go by the TW specifications-I am surprised you didn't know that. I thought I read a TW post that said you need a RDC machine to measure swingweight, particularly if you alter the weight and balance through adding lead tape.

Well sounds like you didn't read enough TW posts to the know the whole story. Yes you can actually calculate the SW after adding lead. It's called the Swingweight Customizer. (using the search function would help you greatly;) ) If you had cared to read the first post of this page someone has already answered this for you.

Black Ace is a very flexible frame. 56 stiffness - here are the specs from the TW racket finder:

Pro Kennex Black Ace
Head Size: 86
Length: 27
Weight: 14.1
Swingweight: 396
Stiffness: 56

The stringbed is very open which gives a ton a spin (but goes through strings quickly).

Lol-Demeo8, who starts a thread requesting information and doesn't even extend the posters the courtesy of giving your information?

Oh..my..please get over yourself. First of all, you came into this thread falsely presuming everyone who posted here were confusing swingweight with static weight
that they don't know what they were talking about. When I pointed out to you the existence of racquet specification provided by TW, you, in an attempt to "save face" argued that you were actually talking about SW after adding lead. Then, as poster Strings And Things and I helpfully informed you that it is actually possible to calculate the SW even after lead modification by way of the Swingweight Customizer, you then trying to be a smart***** claiming that I wasn't aware of the existence of such calculator myself. Read the posts again, it was I who mentioned the term Swingweight Customizer, specificly.

Secondly, The Swingweight Customizer is not offered by TW (another false presumption by your weak attempt to save face) But Im happy to provide you with a link http://www.usrsa.com/store/learningcenter/lc_combinedswtbal.html There are also many more threads on this forum alone that have the swingweight formula.

You use a very heavy racquet for your size, sir! May I ask what is your swing style, short, medium or long?

LOL believe what you like, if you are still confused about swingweight and static weight. I can't help you if you are that stupid.
Little Guy-I see you like to take "polls",why don't take a poll of "Whats the best way to determine swingweight" 1) Racquet Specifications, 2) Racquet Customization, 3) Racquet Calculator, or 4) Who cares, I'll just give you my racquet weight! Chuckle, Chuckle!

Ehh, i dont think my racquets too heavy. I was actually thinking about adding more lead tape but i choose not too. I have a pretty long swing on my backhand and i would say a medium-long on my forehand.

That is one large, strong brotha. Did you always play tennis, or also rugby / football and stuff?

I thought I used a heavy stick (just over 13 oz). Man, that's like Sampras, Muster kind of weight.

Yes i have played tennis since I was a lil kid. Also played football,wrestling,and swimming while in high school.was a 4 sport athlete .I just started hitting again last summer due to acl injury.Yeah my frame is a beast i love seeing reaction when i let my oppenent pick it up. they will be getting hung up soon since im looking for a lighter larger head size frame since s&v tennis is to brutal on my body now. im going to stick in the 11.5-12.5 ounce range on next frame

We have similar tastes. 3 sport guy here, until I got serious about tennis. I serve&volley a lot, too.

I recently picked up a pair of Dunlop aerogel 200s in a size 5. Built up the grips with a sleeve to a size 6, and added leather and an overgrip. Strung, it's up to 12.87, which is lighter than what I normally use, but it's absolutely awesome. I missed the extra grams, but this stick doesn't need anything additional in the head.

I normally use a slightly heavier Babolat, but I think (until the Storm Ltds come out), I'm using this sub 13 ounce Dunlop full-time. I LOVED doing baseline drills this morning with it, even against a guy who was pinning me behind the line.

Plus, I think it's the best looking racquet out there.

Well, don't go too light. Take care man,

Guazzelli is in the 14+ range, Jolly.

EDIT: I'm feeling emasculated all of a sudden, so.... I just put one of my old Volkl c 10 comps on the scale and it's 14.2 with no lead, just grip. The thing feels like a magic wand, still. Candidate for finest frame ever, along with the Dunlop Max 200g, imho. But that is for another thread.

very nice. my super rds are about 12.9 oz strung with fairway leather grip. they are 1/2 size which weigh more becasue thats how yonex was back in the day. to get them up to the 14+ oz range i put lot of lead under bumper buard at 12 and a tad on 3 and 9 to stableize frame. problem is that the 90 in head is becoming a draw back for me now since im 60 lbs heavier before injury and to many punks use those bab frames now

How do you put the lead under the bumper guard?? I tried that on my nice PSC 6.1 and thought I would break the little grommets putting it back on. I ended up removing the lead tape and and got the bumper back on.

I have it done professionally. You can't reuse the bumpers, you need to do it on a new frame, or change the bumper and grommet set.

Local pro shop has a custom swingweight machine (not Babolat) that I used to use. Not anymore since the owner decided to charge $40 per use.

The swingweight online calculator like ojingoh posted is helpful too.

Now I'm experimenting with TWU's new customization tool. Stop watch, pencil, tape measure and all... But its hard to get the swing counts right.

J011yroger

why is he choking a chicken?

The chicken got him into trouble with his girlfriend. The chicken has a power to interfere with his normal rational thought process, and when the chicken wants something, it turns his brain off, and he does as the chicken commands.

So he chokes the chicken in order to keep it in line, and tame its desires so that he can retain control of his mind.

The post states that they added 8grams for overall weight, so I'd guess that the lead was added at the balance point to maintain the same balance but increase the static weight.
But...only the poster can confirm that.

Black Ace is a very flexible frame. 56 stiffness - here are the specs from the TW racket finder:

Pro Kennex Black Ace
Head Size: 86
Length: 27
Weight: 14.1
Swingweight: 396
Stiffness: 56

The stringbed is very open which gives a ton a spin (but goes through strings quickly).

I hit with this ^^^ a year ago. This is the stats of the earliest black ace (the one with the silver stripe).

I also have a mid-1980's black ace with red-stripe. This is my favorite version:
Head Size: 86
Length: 27
Weight: 373g (13.2oz?)
Swingweight: 341
Stiffness: not sure, but it felt stiffer :) than the earlier version

I also have a bunch of late-1980's black ace with red-stripe and plastic guard on the head. This version also has an 86 square inch head, but it only weights around 12.1oz. Not sure about the other stats, as I have not asked my stringer to measure them.

Right now, I'm hitting with the Pro-Kennex Kinetic Pro 5G PSE (stock):
Head Size: 100
Length: 27
Weight: 367g (12.9oz?) - it said 13.1 in TW website
Swingweight: 344
Stiffness: not sure - probably in the low 60's

EDIT: I'm 5'10", 150lb
