    and if any of you can remember this model, do you remember the weight? it feels like it's about 280g, even balance.

    That's the Tour 6 gen I from 2002, i never saw this colour though, just the blue.
    Yes the weight is 9.8 oz or about 277 grams. The gen II was slightly heavier.

    Not really, as you may know the numbers stood for playability, the highest (Tour 10) had the most playability and control, the lowest the most power and easy to handle.
    Ofcourse all of this is quite relative...

    Yep that's it, good find IDZ.
    That explains why i never saw that racket, specs should be the same though.
