I don't consider myself unusually strong, but my leaded Pro Kennex Ki 5x has a swingweight of 377 (my own measurements using TW's test method), and mass-wise it's not even in the league of Pete Sampras' racquet, which I'm guessing had to be well over 400. My racquet gets to over 390 just by putting 4 more grams of lead at the top, which I've played with before but prefer it without. Players in the 70's played with even heavier racquets than Pete.
