    I know it said #3 on the buttcap, but I agree with the earlier posters that the grip looks thicker than a typical #3. To me it looks more like a #5 with an overgrip on top.

    The spec seems somewhat different from what Fed uses now. RFRF is right and so are other stringers who actually strung/saw Fed's recent rackets. It's just that they are talking about the rackets that have been used by Federer at different times(i.e, they are talking about different rackets, thus they are both right).

    Inside, it says 348g (unstrung)
    balance point 300 mm (30.0 cm, also unstrung)
    stiffness 69
    and Swingweight 4 (which I'm guessing is a range or category for them).

    So all in all, these are basically the exact specs that Federer has always used, yes? He measured the swingweight himself, which shouldn't be too off with the plastic (it might go up a point or two maybe?), which is in line with the 350s that Federer has been known to use.

    The weight also checks out. It's about 2-4 grams higher than his BLX incarnation from what I remember (4-6 grams added to stock 340 grams). Strings add half an ounce on the low end (~14 grams, synthetic guy), and up to maybe 20 grams on the high end (which gut and luxilon hybrids fall under, but I think they add 16-18 grams, I haven't done this stuff in years so I'm not as exact as I used to be with my numbers).

    If I recall correctly, balance is measured from the buttcap, and a stock [K]Six.One Tour is balanced at 305 mm from the buttcap unstrung. Again, the numbers check out fairly well.

    The stiffness though, is a bit high. It's 2 points higher than a [K]Six.One Tour.

    Of course, I could be misinterpreting the meaning of the label in the throat of the racket, but the numbers and letters line up REALLY well with expected numbers and meanings, so excuse me if I'm wrong.

    Don't you know, those numbers are Roger's cell phone?
