I wonder with the lead & leather grip what the total weight of his frame ends up at, probably around the 12oz mark at least.

As for balance I bet some of the hardcore talktennis members could hazard a guess just from looking at the picture of the racket finger hang in your article. Haha
that was my method lol. since the leather grip is heavier than the stock synthetic grip, I'm guessing there's only lead under the bumper. I only had a few minutes to do the interview, so I had Yvon (the Team Canada stringer) pose with the racquet that way so that we could estimate the balance.
