    I also saw a D.C. sticker on the inside of Denis Kudla's new Technifibre frames this summer. His Tecnifibre T-Fight 325 Vo2Max had stickers indicating:

    Mass: 332g, Bal: 31.4cm, SW: 298

    They must be strung because I've seen tipsarevic's racquet listed as 320 unstrung.

    That's what the sticker read, but I suspect it must be an unstrung measure.

    That's unstrung. Strung would be about 335-340

    Thanks. Any guess on how the strings would modify the balance of 31.4cm?

    It usually takes it up around 1 cm to 32.5cm or so.

    Here's a cheat sheet: this is for std length sticks

    Metric Conversion
    Even balance = 34.30
    1pt head light = 33.98
    2 pts head light = 33.66
    3 pts head light = 33.35
    4 pts head light = 33.03
    5 pts head light = 32.71
    6 pts head light = 32.39
    7 pts head light = 32.08
    8 pts head light = 31.76
    9 pts head light = 31.44
    10 pts head light = 31.12
    11 pts head light = 30.81
    12 pts head light = 30.49
