    I am giving a set of string for free to the winner of the following contest:

    The winner will be the first person to correctly number the following rackets, 1 through 10, from the lightest to the heaviest. Static weight, not SW! [I have all these rackets in the house and I will weigh them strung, with one overgrip, in a 4 5/8 grip.]

    Okay, so here are the rackets in alphabetical order. Please do not edit your post after you submit your guesses. Winner will be announced on Sunday, October 21, 2007. Have fun! :grin:

    1. Cayman TNT-90
    2. Dunlop Hot Melt 300g
    3. Dunlop MFil 300
    4. Prokennex Redondo MP
    5. Volkl DNX 9
    6. Volkl T10 VE MP

    If no one matches up completely, the closest person will get the prize. Second place player (I am not sure exactly how I will be able to determine this yet) will get a runner-up prize of this:

    I think I will give a clue here:

    The heaviest racket I weighed was the

    Yonex RQ-180 at 369 grams

    Yes, I am surprised how heavy it was. You may submit up to 4 times. Please keep trying, because I really want someone to win.

    The guesses are getting closer and closer everyday. The contest therefore will close when someone gets the order completely right. Come on, people! Submit your entry, NOW! :)

    You gave it to the closest one in String Contest #2, why not this one? ;)

    Yeah, the closest should win, it's only fair. It was too hard a contest to get it perfect.

    Dude... you're *****ing over $10 string:|

    BTW Look at Post #41, it seems that LanEvo only mixed two spots up, whereas you mixed up 3.

    The problem is determining who was the closest fairly...

    I knew someone would complain at the end of the day. Just can't please people these days.

    Wait, I am the boss here, I make the rules!!! :)

    It's ok, i was just saying, not trying to act cheap or anything.
    And i wasn't "bit*****" about a set of strings, and if LanEvo was closest, he gets it.
