    When I have pairs, they match identically. I do them both and the same time, and I make sure that I am so deadly clean with them, that I've done it for other players and they love me for it! :)

    Same here. I haven't matched others' rackets, just mine.

    I use a decent brand so they are actually already the same.

    (I know that's a shock to you Wilson/Head people, but there it is)

    Oh, you and your Dunlops!

    OP - I only used that expression when I was in the military.

    I use Dunlops and one of mine was very light and head light (I know it's genuine) but I do match mine within 2 grams, the balance must be the same or only slightly more head-heavy on the slightly lighter ones.

    Of course the only way to truly match them is to match SW. which needs an RDC or

    What technique do you use to measure / match swingweight?

    Good enough for government work for me. I'm not playing anywhere near anything competitive... so it's good enough.

    Just to eliminate weird fears, I make mine identical. Even down to stringing them the right side up.

    I've always played Dunlop since I started playing tennis, ergo, I have no need to. I have 11 AG100s, all of which are within 2 grams of one another unstrung. My 3 4D200 Tour sticks are exactly the same to the gram unstrung.

    A shop I go to a lot has a machine for checking SW! :) I'm friends with the owner so he lets me use all his fancy gear!

    Just for rough home work, I use the TW tool, and the swing tool for iPhone!

    I put approximately same size weights in about the same places, then just adjust them a little based on how they feel swinging them and hitting against the backboard.
    Close enough for government work.

    All my kblades are exactly matched. My apdgts are awfully close, but I haven't exactly matched them yet.
