    I am hoping I could get some direction on how to make a 95 inch head size racquet with the specs below play similar to my beloved pro staff 85 St. Vincents? I know it's not possible to get an exact match because difference in material make up of the racquets, but I am looking for the racquet below to have the same plow through on ground strokes, and the ultra headlight balance on serves of a PS85.

    Unstrung racket - 325grams,31.5 balance,312 swing weight, Stiffness - about 68

    If it helps with suggestions, these are the rough specs for an unstrung Head Microgel Prestige Pro. I know that a prostaff 85 and the MGPP would feel different, but just need to know how I might be able to tune to get some similarity. Thanks for any tips.

    There is a spreadsheet here:
    http://www.hoboy.net/formulas.xls
    That lets you work out the impact on swingweight etc..of where you position the lead. That would be a good start

    Yeah its in the racquets FAQ sticky at the top of the Racquets section. Good thread that for sure. Good luck with it mate, I tried this once to get a racquet like a PSC 6.1, wasn't easy and didn't feel right.
