315 cm balance?!!

Is that even possible? :-P


Even assuming you meant 31.5cm, I have no idea.

I'll take a guess. By the way, awesome game, thanks so much for taking the time to set this up! Wish there was a prize : ).

Pro #1 is Novak?
Pro #2 is Federer?
Pro #3 is Verdsaco (pretty sure)

Zindane339 has correctly guessed that Pro #3 is Verdasco's spec.

Keep guessing on the others.

THESEXPISTOL has correctly guessed Pro Spec #1. Good job:)

This is one of his old specs. Not sure what he currently uses.

Sampras's strung spec was:

382g WOA
323 mm Balance
373-378g kgcm2 Swing

One remaining......

Good try, but it's not Youzhny's frame.

Here's a little hint: it's not a Russian players spec.

Sorry to revive an older thread but any idea of what the metric balance would be on Verdasco's stick when it was strung? Thanks in advance :)

As far was SW is concerned, the rule of thumb would be to add 30 units so that puts him at 314 correct?

Not Almagro (or Kafelnikov)..sorry.

Despite the higher WAO, this particular frame swings very easy given its nice SW. It's a very nice frame to play with. Easy to rattle heavy forehand off with this stick. (that's the only hint I'm giving you).
