    If I have a new Wislon nCode six-one 95: 12.3 oz static weight, 27", 12.4 in. headlight (which from what I gather is about is about 9 points), and a swingweight of 330 grams...and I remove the bumperguard - thereby removing 0.2 oz from the top of the racquet - what is the new swingweight?

    Thanks! :?

    I don't think it, or any rackets I know of, is 12.4 " HL.

    it's Wilson's quaint way of expressing "the balance point is 12.4" from the butt, which makes the frame headlight"

    bhud, you need to measure the distance from the 10cm mark from the butt end of the frame to the tip in centimeters. Then plug that distance and the weight removed in grams into the following formula; W=M*D^2/1000. You subtract the result of this calculation(W) from the original swingweight.

    I estimate ~313.

    between Steve and my results I would say 315 is a safe bet
