    Tennis . com has it as 328 Swingweight(kgcm^2) but Im not sure whether if its strung or unstrung.

    Mine is a grip 2 so might be even lower.

    I think that my grip 3s are around 340 strung, but will check.

    Yep something like that, it is quite heavy to handle and certainly not for everyone.

    There was a UL and SL version. The SL I had in grip 4 felt heavier than the mfil 200 which has a sw around 340-350.

    I switched to RD7 about 5 months ago, (from IPEX7 Mid). I now have 9 of them. The swingweights vary by about 20 points from lowest to highest. Not too much consistancy on these stick. I love them anyway.

    Spinny -- two questions: where are you getting them from, and are they all the same grip size?

    I get them mostly from the bay site. Some are from TW for sale boards, A couple from Craigs list.They are all different grip sizes, but I have a friend who is a world-class racket tech, and he cuts down the number 5's into 3's

    I am pretty sure the specs provided are strung weight.

    I compared the specs of current models like RDS001 mid from this table against the specs (strung weight) provided by TW - both came to +/- .2 oz difference.

    My RD7 weights 12.4 oz (351.5 g) strung / with dampener and overgrip. I keep a record of all the specs of the racquet I own. Hope this helps.
