    Hello julian,

    thank you for this information. We checked again and it seems like our RDC is not working correctly. We already are in touch with our contact for our RDC machine. We will re-measure the new Yonex VCore Xi rackets once the machine has been repaired. We will update you here, once we added the swingweights.

    thanks,
    Stefan/TWE

    Hello,
    unfortunately not a matter of days. We hope they can repair it. Otherwise we would need to order a new machine. As posted before, as soon as we have measured the swingweights we will update you here. Sorry for the possible inconvenience.

    Thanks,
    Stefan/TWE

    Outsourcing

    Can we outsource it to someone?
    Can we ask Yonex?
    Somehow the question is interesting NOW

    It is wrong AGAIN

    One of two numbers 322 for 280 ----> 322
    or
    for 300 -----> 305

    is wrong
    I believe that for HIGHER WEIGHT the swingweight should be HIGHER
    Please let me know you receive this message and relay to the person masking
    measurements
    Thank you
    Julian

    I think the number for 280 is WRONG

    Let me make it less confusing
    I think the number for 280 is WRONG
    It comes via the definition of the swingweight
    The only way to resolve is to see whether your NEW machine
    provides sensible numbers for OTHER rackets
    To simplify I can send you an E-mail if you give me your E-mail address
    There was a post by Barthelby(Bartelby) who was raising the similar issue

    We just measured the 280g version.
    Strung:
    stiffness: 66
    weight: 300g
    swingweight:322

    Unstrung:
    stiffness:67
    weight:283g
    swingweight:287

    Why do you think the 300g version needs to have a higher swingweight?
    The Extreme MP 2.0 has a higher swingweight than the Extreme Pro 2.0 and a lower weight.

    thanks,
    Stefan/TWE

    Easy Test

    The easy test for your new machine is like that:
    if the swingweight (STRUNG) for Babolat Pure Drive 2013 is AROUND 316
    I give UP-i.e I cannot prove anything about the Yonex case

    Going to jump in here. Static weight is not the sole factor of a swingweight. How that weight is distributed in a racquet will affect swingweight much more. Racquets that have more mass in the head will have a higher swingweight. Take the Gamma Big Bubba. It weighs 10.4 oz strung (295g) but has a swingweight of 412. The Pro Staff 90 weighs 12.6 oz (357g) but has a swingweight of 327.

    Please try to read posts before

    Please try to read posts before
    1.The original problem was that the racket 280 UNSTRUNG was reported to have swingweight 337
    Please click the link in post#1 of this tread by Jack Romeo
    or click
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=7046031&posted=1#post7046031
    My only role was that I brought it to YOUR/TW attention.
    2.I said it was wrong-so THE NEW machine was brought up by TW and THE CURRENT number as REPORTED by TW is 322
    So we see that 337 was wrong
    3.I think that 322 is still 2 high but I cannot prove my point
    so I give UP
    It kind of closes the conversation except that the ORIGINAL number 337 should NOT be published without thinking
    4.If you have any questions please let me know
