    Does anyone know or have a range of what is considered Heavy and light in a racquet frame. Also assume it is strung.

    My range is:
    9 to 10.5 light
    10.5 to 11.5 medium
    11.5 and over heavy

    Also head light and head heavy.

    Head heavy 5 point head light and below
    Head light 5 point head light and above

    Be nice to have a set of metrics before discussing frames.

    My 80's made Prince Original Graphite weights at 12.7 oz, and is 10 points head light. These are strung measurments.

    >12.5 = heavy
    11.8-12.5 = perfect
    11 - 11.8 = little light
    < 10 = too light
    (< 9 = I will be spending more on lead tape than the racket)
