hey guys, i don't think i could find any recent post about how you set up your racquets.. so what is your current weight of your racquets, what are the balance and the set up?

my current weapon of choice is a head prestige classic 600 @ 400 grams just about and 10pts head light..

Yeah 400 is the most comfortable I play with.. Adding more I wouldn't be able to play.. Less heavier it would feel filmsy.. It is abt 10 pts headlight tho

I have an old head which is also around the 400gr. and I feel comfortable with it, but I cannot say I care much about the weight as far as the racket is stable enough

12.3oz around? Isn't it around 11.5oz 7pts head light STOCK or is it because of Wilson QC and can you ask for the heaviest racquet they have in terms of static weight when you buy? Can you get them to weight it in front of you?
:confused: :confused:

Thanks

Fischer Pro Tour - 340g, about 5pts HL
Prince Ozone Tour - 336 or 7, more headlight (er?) than the fischer.

400 grams can feel flimsy with a low swingweight. 400 grams in combination with high swingweight is what counts.

I don't know what my swing weight is.. But mine is pretty much a polarised setting w/ 10 pts headlight 400 grams stick.. To me it feels fine :).. But I just got paranoid when ppl here are saying that none of the current pros are using sticks that heavy.. Cos obviously I'm not a pro, but then again I may have the same power but no where near consistency, I did get 212km/h on my serves in the aussie open serving booth with my current stick when I tried to serve my fastest.. So I don't really know whether I should go with what I like (which is a pog leaded up to 355g) or what I play best with, which is my current racquet (pc600 @404g) what do u guys think?

check the signature for my main racquets.

i also have 4 APDs (1 original, 1 cortex, 2 GT) all weighted at 345g and about 7.5pts HL. i don't really use them anymore since i got my new racquets, but they're still fun to hit with.

400g is a big accomplishment. I'll bet a lot of people are really proud of you.
I tried to swing a racket one time that was 356g. I looked funny swinging it because I have a petite frame and sloping shoulders.
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
Anyway, long story short, this girl that I liked at the time was watching me play with the racket and kept laughing at me and I got distracted, so on one of my follow-throughs I hit myself in the side of the neck. It really hurt. I was hoping that she would come see if I was ok, but instead she called her friend Whitney and they went and got ice cream.
I like light rackets.

LOL at that signature. No, of course there's nothing wrong with sloping shoulders.
