    after looking at a thread here on TW about the donnay xp dual racket, I discovered that both TW and a user's pictures of the donnay xp dual say that the racket is 4pts head light (when strung) or 320mm unstrung balance; however, Donnay's website and a host of other websites say the unstrung balance is 315mm and 6pts strung. Can anyone tell me what the ACTUAL balance is unstrung and strung?

    The "ACTUAL" balance for each racquet will vary a little bit, Donnays' offical specs will be the target ones, the ones they aim for in the middle of the tolerance range, the ones TW post are an average of some of the sticks they string up and test when they first get them, so realistically i would trust what is on this site more than the target info but of course if TW tested 6 there will probably be 2 near it and 2 more H?L with 2 more HH than listed.(on average I mean).You can always call them and tell TW what specs you are after and i think they'll choose specific frames for you if you pay for the service.

    Any recommended string for these racquets, using a demo now with some Donnay micron string in it, very lacking on off center hits when volleying.
