Wilson Hammer 6.2 and Hyper Hammer 6.2 Same specs?
I'm trying to figure out if the specs (weight, balance, sw, length, flex) changed when wilson updated the 6.2 model hammer with the hyper hammer 6.2
What I can figure out from google searches is that there were MP and OS versions of each, the earlier hammer version had slightly different cosmetics, more of a spray paint fade around the throat. The hyper hammer was black and white (sometimes called the skunk version) and had no spray paint fade around the throat. Any help figuring out the rest of the puzzle would be greatly appreciated.
From the TW article, it says that the original skunk was std length (consistent with my memory as well) while the Hyper Hammer 6.2 is longer (27.25" for the 95 and 27.5" for the 110)-- and also notes that the Hyper Hammer is lighter than the original skunks.
They were very different critters. It was the Hammer 6.2 that was called The Skunk, and it was a major retail success for Wilson. Subsequent versions sought to capitalize on that success by reviving the nickname and the cosmetics.
Here are Wilson's specs for the two. Wilson didn't list swing weight back then, but the original 6.2 had a lot more of it (334 for the 95 that was used for the "Tailweighted Hammer" project discussed on Wilmot McCutchen's site):
Hammer 6.2 Stretch (this was released between the H6.2 and the HH6.2; it is identifiable by a gold "spray" at the throat between the white and black)
Hyper Hammer 6.2
i used the hammer a few times - got the worst case of TE in the universe and i almost gave that thing away just to get rid of it.
Worst tennis racquet ever made - "my 2 cents worth of course".
I had a brief hit with what I think was one of these last night.
Seemed to be standard length, was quite nice on volleys and groundstrokes and then I tried a serve.
Monster power, but sent pain shooting straight up my arm all teh way to my shoulder from just the one serve!
