    I saw the new Prince response in a local shop. On the carton on the strings is printed: unstrung weight: 325 grams, balance 30.5 cm. On the frame itself (inside the beam, near the handle) specs were printed and listed: unstrung weight 320 grams, balance 31 cm! It was the new 2014 version. We weighted the frame and with factory strings it was around 334. So closer to 320 unstrung, however, individual frames may of course vary 5 grams or so.

    What is correct, and what is printed on your frames, and on the carton folder?
    Or are there 2 versions around?

    borgpro,

    All our Responses have 320g printed on the throat as well, so there is likely only one version. Prince has circulated some literature with 325g. It's unlikely that they would make two separate versions within 10g. I think ours averaged to 323g or 324g unstrung which is well within tolerances for both advertised specs.

    TW Staff,
    Thanks

    Thanks a lot for checking!
    Still a little bit strange, Prince prints 320 (and a balance of 31 cm) on the throat, but lists 325 and a balance of 30.5 on their website..
    Sounds like the 325 is correct and the print on the shaft isn't..
    Well not that important but thanks again, obviously only one version around!
