    two questions.

    one) how do you check the swingweight of an unstrung frame?

    two) how much weight and swingweight does a 1.22 co-poly add to a racquet?

    1. I go to LTS
    2. It depends on several variables (racquet balance, string pattern...) but I would say 22-26 points

    i didn't realize a poly could add 22-26 points on swingweight. that's a pretty big addition.

    THe SW measuring tool on TWU is not really that accurate. I did it and then took my sticks to a local shop with an RDC and found that the measurements I had made were not that close.

    2. strung (sw=328) with poly (topspin cyber blue) and 'O' dampener
