    I took this specs from a brazilian tennis magazine. The article tries to put an end in the myth of heavy racquets and high tensions . They say that the original weight of the racquets are Prestige MP-349g, Babolat PD-318g , HPS6.1-352g,
    Babolat PC-349g. So I think they are talking about strung racquets.

    I always though Guga used the Pro Tour 630. Did he change from the PT630 to the LM Prestige?

    Hate to say it, but yes he does, and it is extremely head heavy. Strung with Big Banger at 28 kg on the hard courts. He has it set to sort of resemble the weight and balance of his old Synergry Lite that he played long before the Babolats.
