    Does the racket have a 16x19 pattern or a 16x20. I have seen websites that list both of these specs

    the demo section of TW is posting a different spec for this racquet.TW post it as 21/19 beam?

    do pictures lie?

    OR TW has misprinted the spec?

    hey centercourt, i felt that it swung heavy with no feel. i personally like heavy rackets that are low powered but that are around 8-9 pts headlight with a SW of around 330 max. this one felt like a log, im estimating with string and dampener a SW of around 3-4 pts headlight and a SW in the 340's. i dont mind muted rackets like volkls but this one just felt dead to me.

    It is a 21mm beam--not as listed on the specs in the picture!
    I held one next to a Nadal racket, and this one is thinner in
    all places. The rep at the ATP Cincinnati acknowledged there is
    a misprint. I just got mine--it goes down to 19 mm right at the
    handle, and looks to be a constant 21mm elsewhere.
