TW STAFF…..

At the prince website the specifications for Prince Diablo is 6,6 pts HL, at TW it is 10 pts, a very big difference!, some possibilities are that prince uses unstrung racquets for their result acquisition, but if that is the case the discrepancy is even greater since strings are all on the head and TW, witch is the most head light from both definitely take measures with strung racquets! This is peculiar, because balance interfere with almost every other “Feature” on the racquet spec, so what data is accrued?

I think TW re-specs all the racquets that they receive. They have their own Babolat RDC machine and I'm sure they verify other specs in a racquet.

In addition, manufacturer's sometimes make mistakes on their published specs, for example, Wilson has the nSix-One tour racquet with a Wilson SI of 6.0 listed on their website when it is actually 6.1

Guilherme,
We measure our own specs. The specs published by TW are representative of real racquets. We measure as many racquets as it takes to establish a solid average spec. Often, the specs listed by manufacturers are target specs.
