    Does anyone know the flex and SW of this racket?

    It was only a European offering, but I am thinking it is the closest match to the Wilson KPro Tour that I cannot find anymore.

    Thanks

    My daughter used to play with these. Unstrung specs of her 2 frames:
    1. Weight 300 g, sw 276, bal 31 cm, flex 59
    2. Weight 306 g, sw 293, bal 31,8 cm, flex 60

    As you seee; quite a difference in balance and swingweight. And if you didn't know, BLX Pro Cobra is a slightly extended frame; +0,25 inches.

    Thanks so much Jocke.

    Have you played with these frames? What's your opinion on them?

    Thank you

    Not much I'm afraid, and only with my daughter's strings/tension. If memory serves me right, the frames aren't "flexy" in the hoop as the Prince EXO3 Tour. The Cobra is more allround soft and also feels a bit hollow, maybe somewhat like some Babolats but softer. Hard to describe, I'm not an expert in this.
