    According to Wilson site and unlike TW site, the strung balance is 4 HL (without any other accessories like overgrip, dampener, ...). Although, it is exactly the same balance for my frame...
    Do you know how/where your frames have been leaded to be head lighter ?
    Could other 2012 Pro Open owners give their strung balance ? More head light or more head heavy ? And for what aims ?

    There wasn't any lead (that I could see or find) added to the BLX Pro Open demo I tried this past week. 317g / 5 pts HL was its base strung weight and balance.

    Triple, I have a pro open basically brand new sitting in my closet still. I was very impressed with this stick and simply like my yonex 200 more because of the weight and the control. If I had to use the pro open, I would not complain.

    I personally found it a little light in stock form, but what I would say is that it definitely is a very stable racquet. So if you do decide to lead it up (which I did), I would polarize the racquet with around 2 grams at 12 and 2 in the handle.

    Thanks for the advice...it's greatly appreciated!!!

    I seldom use lead tape, but have some in the 'tennis closet' just in case.

    I ordered my 3 racquets with the exact specs as the demo, so I'm hoping my incredible play with my demo will carry through to my racquets as well!!!

    I just find it funny that the racquet I like the best (out of the 20? 32? 48? I've tried) is one that I threw in at the last second just so I would have 4 demos coming.

    That's how it usually goes. That's why you can't only go by specs alone.

    TripleB: did you try the new Extreme 2.0? Not the Pro but the MP version.
