anybody know specific swing-weight of any pro player's racquet? ( for example a number like 332 for the stock tour 90 ) Just curious so i can know what a pro's racquet feels like to swing, since most of them customize theirs with things such as lead tape...

Swingweight alone won't do much for you -- you need more specs to match two (or more) racquets. Also, if the flex doesn't match, the two racquets will play very differently.

Taylor Dent plays with a Wilson racquet that weighs about 387 grams, with a balance point at about 32.5 cm, with a swingweight of about 400 kg.cm2.

Pete Sampras played with a Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85 that weighed about 385 grams, with a balance point at about 32.35 cm, with a swingweight of 366. (All measurements taken with overgrip and dampener.)

Pat Rafter played with a Prince racquet that weighed about 360 grams, with a balance point around 32 cm, and a swingweight of about 354.

Michael Chang's Prince Chang Graphite OS 28 weighed about 364 grams, with a balance at about 31.25 cm, and a swingweight of about 355.

Todd Martin's Wilson Hammer 6.2 95 weighed about 378 grams, with a balance at 33.8 cm, and a swingweight of 385.

Have fun.
