    What scale should I buy to measure the weight of a racquet in grams. It should be pretty accurate.

    A digital postal scale works fine--make sure it measures in both oz. and grams. You should be able to pick one up at one of the big box office supply stores for about twenty to thirty bucks.

    I got my postal scale from Staples for I think 25-30 bucks and it measures tenths of ounces up to five pounds as well as grams. The company that made it is called Pelouze (sp?) and the thing actually works!

    I fount a great digital postal scale for under 20 dollars at Harbor Freight. If you have one locally they have great sales on these.

    i went on the auction site for mine. cost ~14 shipped and works fine for me.

    basic postal scale up to 400-500 grams is usually fine unless you lead up like crazy.
