    Is this guy for real? Nice to hear it straight from the horse's mouth... Jean Jacques Poupon, Arnaud Clement's stringer. It's probably the specs of his old racquet though.

    Rough translation would be:

    He is one of those who think that there is no room for error when working on a racquet. The weight of his racquet is 349g unstrung, its balance is 30.7 and its tension is 23-24.

    «*Il est de ceux qui pensent que la préparation d’une raquette est essentielle et qu’elle ne souffre d’aucune imprécision […] Le poids de sa raquette non cordée est de 349 grammes et son équilibre de 30.7. sa tension est de 23-24.*»

    BTW, also read on a French site that Pioline would have different racquets specs for his singles and doubles matches... Transferring all the lead from the head to the handle for doubles.
