I'm looking for weight, SW, balance, flex.

Here are some figures I found in an old TW thread. Not sure how accurate they are. For one thing, they had the head size listed at 90 sq. in. (which I changed, because the Sting is 85 sq. in.). So take it for what it's worth. But it does seem in the ballpark, at least.

Head Size: 85 sq. in.
Length: 27 inches
Strung Weight: 12.6oz
Balance: 7pts Head Light
Swingweight: 326
Stiffness: 61
Beam Width: Straight Beam
Composition: 100 % Graphite
Power Level: Low
Swing Speed: Fast
Grip Type: Leather
String Pattern: 16 Mains / 18 Crosses

By the way, I was at the local courts last week and saw an older man (70-75, I'd say), very fit, using a Dunlop Black Max, another quality old graphite that is similar to the Sting. He was pure with that old quality graphite beauty, just popping every stroke -- looked like he could have beaten a lot of younger players without working up much of a sweat. It was nice to see.
