    I recall seeing a thread about the POG mid where a user had removed the butt cap and found metal rods or something giving it the weight.

    I just wondered if anyone had looked and found the same with the newer Exo3 93?

    Its very headlight and for a 345g strung racket only has a swingweight of 300, so I am wondering what is giving it that static weight?

    If anyone knows Id be interested to hear. I'm just wondering if it could be made lighter in its static weight?

    Thanks

    The exo3 doesnt have a sw of 300. Its somewhere around 335. My exo3 graphite 100 is about 330ish.

    I just looked at mine and it definately has a SW of 300.

    I prefer lighter rackets and its a shame this isn't lighter, I think it could be a real scalpel.

    Sorry but there's no way the swing weight is 300. Might be the unstrung weight?...

    And btw if you want a lighter swinging graphite, try to find an exo3 ignite team. Great racket

    Unstrung is 330g

    I tried to take a photo but my crappy camera was too blurry. It does say 300 I wouldn't lie to you lol. Mine is the 93 not the 100.

    That would make sense, thank you for clarifying.

    So do you know whats in the handle to give it that weight?

    some prince have a hollow handles and some other are filled with foam, not sure wich kind are using in the exo3 line...just remove the buttcap and see for yourself, is not really complicated.
