    I decided to reorganize my log, and moving it to a new thread is the first step of that. The latest additions were the Slazenger Black Panther, the Fischer Pro Classic 90 and the Donnay Pro Cynetic 12 Mid.

    Thanks for the list.

    I am surprised that flex rating of the Spectrum Comp is that high since it feels pretty flexible or comfortable to me.

    It does feel pretty comfortable, which indicates that there's more to a racquet's feel than the RDC numbers might suggest... It has been noted before that the RDC machine only measures flex at one point, which may account for some differences between numbers and feel. At least that's the way I understand it.

    Thanks, yeah, over the years the number of racquets has grown. There are a few other racquets I'm still looking for, so hopefully I'll be able to add more to the list soon...

    Once you get them all, are you going to start traveling to log more :) Guess some of us could send you more to catalog.

    BTW, Id love to see a few woody entries to add some more interesting perspective to the data. Do you have any wood rackets ?

    Always wondered how you measure the flex and the swingweight. Do you have some sort of special machine at home?

    And can you put photos up here, to show it in action please?

    I'd cetainly like to see how this is done:)

    For a Prince Precision Tuning Center that would be around 2000€, for a Babolat RDC that would be 6000€ ;-)

    Apart from the Estusa I haven't played with any of the racquets I just measured. I'm especially eager to try out the F295, since I've had a NOS one for ages that I never dared to string up...

    The F395 is the larger head size version of the F295. Back in those days Rossignol offered the racquets in different weights. I had a F295 that was that was labled L and weighed 370g strung and one that was a SL that was much lighter. Unfortunately I don't have them anymore.

    Dino Lagaffe - I haven't said it before, but thanks for starting this thread and continuing to update the info.

    Great resource for us classic racket enthusiasts. It's true, they don't make 'em like they used to.

    Oh, if you could get your hands on a Wilson Ultra II that would be great.

    I have a couple of old issues of World Tennis magazine from 1985 and they rated the stiffness of frames in their reviews on a scale from 1 to 10.

    The Wilson Ultra II was rated a 9, the Wilson Sting and the Dunlop Max 200g were both rated at 7. Mind you, this was pre-widebody perspective!

    Hey Dino... I have a favor to ask if you have a chance.

    We're having a debate in the stringing machine forum here at TT concerning swingweight. Others have reported that any weight added to a frame, below the pivot point will result in a decrease in SW... which is physically impossible. I'd like to verify it one more time on a different machine to determine if this is an idiosyncrasy of the RDC machine.

    My question is this: The next time you have a racquet on the RDC machine, after determining the swingweight, would you attach/add an additional 10-20 grams of weight as close to the butt cap as you can and then re-run the swingweight test? The weight can be taped to the end or added inside the buttcap.

    If you can do this,

    I'd like to know the following:
    1. Racquet model
    2. Length
    3. Weight
    4. Balance
    5. Swingweight (stock)
    6. Swingweight (with added weight)
    7. Amount of extra weight added to the buttcap
    8. Approximate distance weight is added from the pivot point of the RDC machine (should be 8-9 cm, I believe)
    Thanks!

    Thanks, I feel what makes TT worthwile are the contributions the members make, and this is mine... I haven't really gone after Wilsons in general when I've looked for racquets, but if I ever get my hands on an Ultra II I'll be sure to let you know the specs.

    Snauwaert pictures will come later.

    About the Donnay Diamant, the Roman numerals I and II simply denote racquet 1 and 2, not different models. Sorry for the confusion, I'll change to a different system in the log later. There were two models though, a wooden one that I believe Virginia has posted about and the graphite one proracketeer has posted in the Donnay Code Book thread:
