So it could be that those Greg Raven specs are indeed unstrung, as the 379 SW seems more likely considering how much lead he placed at 3 and 9. I myself tried the same amt of lead on my BLX90, and it felt more like 375+ than 367 (similar to how I had my Radical set up at the time)
I had an old official Babolat RDC list (from 1996) where people like Sampras and others (double liners) were in and i remember that Pete's racket was 388 grams strung.
Sports do not build character. They reveal it.
