jkps builtup to 1pd / 460g
 
Below is the proof of a jkps builtup to 1pd / 460g

Actually hits great. Not much of a drop off in hitting quality from playing my 14oz pc600 infact more touch and much more flex and the power is plenty with full swings.

Who's going to be the first past two lbs? :grin:

In terms of static weight, my heaviest (composite) racquet is 405 grams/14.29 oz. It's a Rossignol F200, very comfortable.

Sweet stick!

Joe, did you build that one up or did you find it that way?

I have a made in UK JKA that comes in at 15.5oz with a 4 7/8 grip, but that thing surpasses it! The 5 3/8 grip+heavy weight must feel excellent!

My heaviest wood is at 17.0oz without any lead (just some silicone in the handle to push the balance to 9pts HL). The weight+ a 5" grip make it by far the smoothest racket I have ever hit with. I agree that 16oz in these feels great... 17oz makes me adjust my shot selection.

Pancho Gonzales would approve of your stick.

Its all my doing and I was really pleased with how well it played, thought it would be too heavy but just fine. Talk about plow thru and flex, just a dream, especially with that natty gut job. The buildup with the fairway also feels very comfortable with my eastern grip.

I did it as a tribute to Jack Kramer being a jkps. He played pretty heavy also and that was against guys like the Panchos.
