For any of the AG200 users out there, how can it have a balance of 8 pts HL and have a swingweight over 330? I realize that it's about how the weight is distributed, but that seems high for the balance point. Especially for a racket that's under 12 oz. Is the static weight actually higher than 11.9? Is more of the weight in the throat? Just curious.

lol yeah it is pretty werid but im guessing it has to do with the material of the racket
i mean the tecnifibre 325 VO2 Max racket is a 12.1 oz racket and its 7 points head light with a swing weight of 326
the prince exo3 graphite mid is a 12 oz 7 points head light racket with a swing weight of 335
so thats my thinking can be something else i dunno

i have a tfight 325 xl vo2 and its 12oz, 14 pts headlight with a swingweight of 340. i'm guessing that its just not a popular spec for racquets maybe?

its because the weight is distributed to the outsides of the frame

what do you mean by outsides of the frame? like the upper hoop?

Plus, any weight that's between the balance point and the grip (in the throat) will increase the swingweight but keep the balance more headlight.

Anyone compared the AG200 with the new Prince EXO 95? It's 9 pts HL and has a slightly higher swingweight. Seems like a heavier frame in general, but otherwise pretty similar. I'm wondering if it "feels" heavier than the AG200.

Ok, I'll try to explain this... imagine that the X are where weight is located.

racquet A:

_____XXXXXX______


Racquet B:

XXX__________XXX

The racquets have the same weight and balance, but racquet B's swingweight is higher.

I think I get it. It's like polarizing a racquet by adding weight at 12 and the handle, right?
