    I can't find any info to state what these numbers mean. It looks as if the center crosses are at an increased tension compared to the rest of the racquet. Thanks for any help.

    I've heard those are Wilson's idea to help customize the racquet. They apparently feel customers won't be able to be able to correctly add lead tape without guide lines.

    Thanks, That makes more sense than what I was thinking, because the numbers didn't line up with the holes.

    wilson just wanted to make it easier for customers to add weight to their frames. they'll be coming out with their own led tape to add to these frames which is a different material besides lead... can't remember what it was called.

    Probably tungsten, but who knows, maybe they'll go the depleted uranium route.:twisted:
