    I think so 2, we have two team versions 16x18 and 18x20 and they weigh 289g unstrung, this one seems to fit in between the team and the standard one.

    Many of the European/non US racquets come in a different spec then we get here. Just like the Yonex 97 tour (310).

    It is unfortunate that we don't get these "middle" racquets that usually fall between the lighter 300 gram and heavier 330+ gram versions.

    I was just told by TWE that the 309g version was previously only available in Asia but has been made available to Europe by popular demand.

    Perfect!!!

    My racket arrived 2 days ago and i have been playing with it. I love the racket. I always loved Wilson but they didn't have any racket with the specs i like. The regular six one 95 is too heavy for me and the team version is too light. This one is perfect. Huge control, amazing spin, the classic feel, very solid and a very good power for a 95 inch head. I can put the ball where i want, good touch and feel and power serve. I AM IN LOVE!

    congrats, i remember seeing that racquet last year and thinking it would be a heck of a stick. I am guessing the strung SW is 328 or so?

    SW

    Yes, it should be about that. I am using the new Tourna Big Hitter Rough with it and it gives some extra spin to the racket.

    I play with one and love it. I had a Head Pres Pro for a long time and really liked it..just became too heavy for me. I tried the Head Rad and it was too light. Tried my friends BLX 309gr and it felt really comfortable. I live near Bangkok and they used to sell it here. Seems they have stopped carrying it in the major tennis shops. I have a friend from Germany who will bring me a new model from TWE.

    This is the Japanese version. I bought one in Hanoi when I lived there. Was a lovely racquet to play with but I felt I needed something a little heavier in the end and sold it to a mate. It was the best serving stick I've ever used I have to say and had tons of power.
