I have two Wilson BLX 95 16x18s. There is a difference in weight of about 7 grams. Weight was taken when both were unstrung. Is this within the acceptable/normal manufacturing tolerances?

Unfortuantely that's considered normal.

I just bought a used one off the boards and mine is 347 grams strung/331 grams unstrung. What the SW is though, I wasn't been able to ascertain and I'm still not sure. Wilson's notorious 'quality control' problems in this dept is a PITA though.

There can be 2-3g variances in the Pro-Hybrid grips alone. Cow skin and all that. So check that first before you begin fiddling with the racquet.

As I mentioned in the other thread, static weight variances aren't that crucial with this stick - its swingweight, balance and distribution of mass that you need to be looking at.

Good point. I'll check out that other thread.
