    I would love to know swingweight and flex too. I weighed mine strung with Babolat VS gut 16 and an overwarap:13.0 oz on my postal scale. As a reference, my kid's Head iS10 weighed 9oz with Head Syntethic Gut 16.

    How does it play? I've always been very curious about this one. I bought the Cyborg 2700 years back, and that was one sweet racket indeed. However, I wouldn't call it a players racket either. It had the feel, weight, handling, and stroking presence of a player's racket, but the power of a Pure Drive...a little too much power for me.

    It would have been an interesting racket with today's poly offerings, as I might have been able to tame the power I got from it. But as it was, all my balls tended to sail just a little bit long with it on a fairly consistent basis.

    Curious how the 2200 played. My guess is that the 2200 was more of the player's racket between the two in terms of power level.

    My Cyborg 2200 has a lot of power I feel. Maybe because of the near even balance. It's strange as I said before it measured 1 pt headlight on balance board, I always thought it would be more headlight.

    Also are all older Yonex frames have shorter length? Mine measures 67.8 cm strung! A bit short I would say.

    Sorry to bring up such an old thread, but I am also wondering if anyone knew the flex on the Cyborg 2200.

    I have some info
    Yonex Cyborg 2200
    98" isometric Head
    27 long
    SL : 320 gr unstrung
    L : 330 gr unstrung
    21 mm oval OPS shaft
    Flex 58
    Swingweight 325
    I got these from paper that came with new Cyborg I got from Japan 9 yrs ago. It did not say Balance, which I found weird. but all three of mine are about 2 pts headlight.
    I love them.

    Believe it or not, I strung one today! Here are the specs I have (with overgrip):
    Weight: 365g
    Balance: 341mm
    Flex: 50
    Swingweight: 326
    Beams: tip 25.5, middle head 25.4, throat 21.6, handle 25.0
    Length: 27"

    This racquet was a little beaten up. It was new in 1994.
