I'm confused. My friend let me try out his Pro Staff Tour 95 over the weekend. I found it very light and was in shock when I looked at the specs on the racket throat. It said the racket was 10.9 oz! wth?? I thought ps tour 95s were 11.5 according to every website I've seen online. What's going on??

the specs on wilson rackets are for those that are unstrung. most that you find (Tennis Warehouse, for example) on websites will have specs for strung rackets.

Your friend might have replaced the leather grip. They should all come with leather grips.

Also, if no extra weight was added when the leather was removed, the racquet could also be another 5 - 10 grams lighter and less head light than with the original leather grip.

The PS Tour 95 is a very lightweight and flimsy racquet. That's just how it is.

True. Add some weight however, and you've got a really "crisp" hitting stick with a VERY open pattern for a 95" head.... For some reason, however dead the strings become on this stick, it maintains a very crisp hit...

At 11.5 strung and 325 swing weight, it's hardly lightweight, not to mention "very light". It just so happens that it has two brothers called PS 6.0 95 and PS Tour 90, which are more appealing to the guys who like to pound their chests. If there were a stock 13oz PS 6.0, I bet these two would been called too light too.

Have you tried it before? Having demoed it before, I don't think they're talking about its actual stats, but just the way it feels.
