I always use a leather grip with an overgrip on top so I replaced the stock synthetic grip, which weighed 12g, for an old TW leather grip I had around which was 22g.
After all that, the racquet weighed 342g, which is 22g heavier than what I would prefer.
In stock form, the Silver already plays great. But, if you want to do some modifications, you can probably estimate off my numbers to what yours may end up like.
Wow! Donnay advertises the silver as 11.1oz strung, so I would expect it to arrive somewhere around 298g....not 311g! Looks like the string alone put you over your 320g limit. Most have said that the heavier racquets feel lighter than they actually are due to the HL balance and thin beam (faster swing). I hope this will offset the extra mass that I will eventually add to the silver. Now I just need a demo to see for myself. Thanks for sharing jlan.
Kal-El, where is your silver review??
