    How heavy are your racquets?

    I went from a 260 gram Wilson to a 300gram racquet and it felt heavy like bricks at first.

    My heaviest racquet right now is 366g.

    I don't think I could hit any of my shots with a racquet that weighed only 300g.

    My racquets are in the 375g to 395g range.

    That's the weight that I grew up using, so that's what feels natural to me.

    That's pretty light for nSix-One Tours. The 4 or 5 I've played with before were all about 366 grams with an overgrip.

    I just tested my heaviest prostaff midsize on my stringer's RDC
    Static weight: 13.3 oz. (1 oz. = 28.6 grams)
    SW: 348
    Stiffness: 66
    Overall # - 80 (I have no idea what this means but they told me it would help determine whether or not my racquet was 'ready' for its next stringjob)

    Static weight : My Estusa power beam pro is 12.9 oz (366g) but doesn't feel that heavy.

    Swing weight(?) : One of my prince precision resonse 660 has been modified to weigh 12.3 oz but feels heaviest among my racquets due to its balance. :( My beloved PS6.0 95s weigh around 12.3 oz but feel very light.


    BTW, 1 oz is 28.35 g?

    362 gram/12.75oz Flex Radical MP Tour. Not a bad stick at that weight. I really don't like using anything less than about 12.5oz it just feels wimpy to me.

    I play 2+ hours, 3 to 4 times a week, every week. My current PSTour90 weighs 13.2 ounces; with 5" of lead tape at 12 o'clock, and > 1/4 of an ounce along the handle and buttcap. I'm slowly removing weight until I find something that feels just about right for my tastes. Maybe I'm moving towards stock, not sure yet!

    Dunlop Revelation Tour Pro at 16 ounces (measured with an electronic scale).
    I have tried it at 17 but all of the feel was gone at that weight. There are
    twelve inches of lead tape on the hoop and the rest is in the handle. I only
    added the lead tape recently and am still getting used to it.

    A customer's racquet weighed in at 20.5 ounces and 26 pts HL. He started with a 5 1/8 grip and put on 2-3 replacement grips and some electrical tape. It was a total club.

    I think the more appropriate question today would be what's the lightest. Mine's a 340 gram tfight 320 16x20 (recent acquisition and no lead). Without the overgrip it would be around 335 grams.

    Pro Tour 280 375 grams, 10 points headlight. This is up from my previous racquet, the PC 600 at 360 grams, also 10 points headlight. I can't see playing with much less weight.
