Weight between 285 - 300, with swing weight between 315-320 strung or 275 - 285 unstrung. Too much swing...

    Building up a grip

    For 2 size up, you will need to put around 7mm of anything on each bevel. If it possible, put 1mm balsa wood on each bevel, and use 1.75 - 1.8mm grip like Head Hydrosorb Pro or WIlson Sublime. Balsa is light, easy to cut, and apply. You wont need much balsa either. Another method is to use...

    "Arm friendly" racket vs. "Not horrible for your arm" rackets

    Choose any racket with same head size, same balance, same swingweight, slightly lower power, slightly softer (64-68 ra), and put hybrid string or lower tension. That lower tension will help with power and provide more feel.

    Head Graphene 360 Speed Racquets

    Solid feeling from GXT Speed Pro may come from its weight distribution (ie more polarized than G360 Speed Pro), but G360 SP has thicker beam. Overall, i like the G360 series more than GXT.
