    Hello,

    The Slazenger Pro Braided now for sale June 2011 is listed with the specs of the Pro braided Henman, but with the cosmetics of the Pro Braided. Is this a special pro stock edition that was not available before?

    We will not be able to post an average strung spec until we get stock of the racquets.

    This is the target unstrung spec we have been provided:

    RA: 72
    Pattern: 16x19
    95 sq. in
    27”
    Unstrung weight 312.5 g
    Unstrung balance 322mm

    That unstrung balance is close to 12.5 inches, making the strung balance around 13 inches, or 4pts head light. The spec we had for the other Pro Braided was:
    Strung Weight: 11.6oz / 328.85g
    Balance: 8 pts HL
    Swingweight:321
    Stiffness: 72
    Beam Width: 22mm / 22mm / 22mm
    Composition: Braided Graphite & Kevlar

    Looking at the target spec we were provided, our posted spec for the Henman matches up closest, except the RA.

    Chris, TW

    thats wierd... the paintjob is the 1st black and white version but the specs are from the second version?

    the great thing i loved about the first version was was that it was a lighter version of the 6.1 with about 318 swingweight, but the second version had a swingweight of about 330

    Thanks Chris! That is helpful. FYI- I prefer knowing the unstrung weight and balance in grams and mm better than the strung specs anyway.

    Way back when I had a coupla of these that were 28" and were called the Pro Braided Extended I believe. Great sticks! Any chance of seeing those again?

    Got really excited reading this as I have been playing with the pro x1 for a few years. But 22mm beam width?? boo. You guys should vote for them to re introduce the pro x1!
