    I've heard that TW is willing to match racquets when you purchase frames. Does matching mean just in static weight, or other factors such as flex, swingweight, and balance also? Also, could you tell me the difference in weight between a strung and an unstrung racquet? I'm liking my racquet the way it's setup, and when purchasing a couple more would like them to match, but I don't want to cut out my strings to get a weight measurement. I'm assuming that TW will match the racquets prior to any stringing. Thanks much.

    kreative,
    We will check all specs when matching racquets. We can also customize racquets to meet the specs of your current racquet - you will either have to provide specs or send your racquet to us for this service.
    We will match unstrung specs.

    Please give us a call for a full list of services.

    Chris, TW.

    Thanks Chris, Do you know how much weight a stringjob adds to a racquet? Or perhaps an estimation? Thanks much.

    Depending on the strings, can be anywhere from about 11-12 grams, up to close to 20. For example, Big Banger original will weigh more than NRG2 18g. It really depends on the strings, but a standard estimate is usually around 14-18 grams.

    There is a slight variance due to type of string and string pattern - tighter patterns equal more string and weight. If you really want to have your racquets matched, it needs to be done the right way by comparing apples to apples. The best match will be achieved by comparing specs of unstrung racquets. If you are concerned about cutting out a good string job, wait until you are ready to restring and get your racquets matched then.
