Unstrung specs from Head's site (weight/balance):
MP 320g/310mm (~10 points headlight)
Pro 325g/315mm (~9 points headllight)

TW:s measurements (strung):
MP 335g/6 points headlight
Pro 343g/7 points headlight

Isn't this slightly conflicting? Or a tolerance issue?

think about it, the MP has more mains and crosses when strung than the pro does, therefore it will add more mass due to strings.

Yep, but it's only 3 more string lines, and that adds weight perhaps ~1 gram. I don't think that's enough.

Yeah, it's a tolerance issue. Since TW does its own weighing, it takes a couple sticks from Head, strings em up w/ a basic (I think syn) string, weighs them and takes the average. This makes it a little different than the target specs from Head.
