you need to measure the specs of the racquet you have, then find federer's specs (don't know them, but i think his sticks weigh 364 grams) then punch those numbers here

then get ready for people to judge you for making this thread. you're welcome

The real question is why you would want to do so. At those specs, the racquet is unplayable for anyone but Roger Federer.

And aren't you the guy who liked his fake K90 because it was much lighter than the real version?

yes i liked the fake k 90 but after 3 year playing with it it is very unstable and bends too much and where should i get anotherone?? i dont agree with you that only federer can play with such a racquet i think that the racquet that we can buy is more difficult to play because it is to low powered and too headlight! when i lead it up to 367g (the balance is 31.5cm)my backhand and serve was way better!

Fed's racket strung with overgrip is 364 grams

The balance is 32.2 cm

I'm guessing you'll have to put lead tape at 12 o'clock.

You may have to cut away some of the leather grip to lighten the weight in the handle.

RElating to the bold bit, it's important to note that anybody can/could play with almost any weight at all. I've got a pro's yonex frame at 380g in weight, I can play with it, I couldn't play like he did, just the same as you won't play like Fed even if you had his actual racquet.
(Note this is not an insult just an observation with no intentions to offend!)
