    I was removing the handle on one of my H22 frames and found:

    So about 9g at approximately 7" from the end.
    But is there such a thing as a P15 (thought it was an H22)?

    I guess you were hacking off the handle to use Head pallets.
    I have owned many H22, some have foam and can be dig out for silicone easily, some filled with harder material including metal stuff like yours (sorry for my photo quality)

    My bigger question is the "P-15" marking on the hairpin. Anyone have more information?

    I don't think it's a P15 sticker.
    The P might me passed quality control with the date sticker. 15 which is another sticker can be the seri number among the batch made.

    I see.

    How did you remove that black end piece with the two holes?

    Never mind I got it off using at heat gun. Looks like it was epoxy and two staples.

    By the way for those interested, Head pallets are a 99.9% fit on these H22s.

    Yea Head Pallets fit great. But you always have to be careful because removing the black butt end might reduce the hairpin length. Just be careful when stable the buttcap

    Is finding lead weight at the top of the handle on your H22 indicative Wilson configured the racquet to be polarized?

    Not sure why Wilson pro room placed lead there. Perhaps for player's preference. Polarized in this context does not exist outside this forum.

    I haven't seen a wilson without weight at the top of the handle inside the molded foam grip.
