Customizing a Wilson Pro Staff 97L / LS to a Wilson Pro Staff

Tennis Spin on how to customise a Wilson Pro Staff 97L / LS to a Wilson Pro Staff.

PS97 (targeted) specs : 325.5g / BP 320mm / SW 315 (sidenote: underspec per Wilson usual QC)
97LS specs: 307g / BP 330mm / SW 303
Attained specs after 97LS "customisation": 326g / BP 320mm / SW 308

Usual Harry customisation comedy gems:
"swingweight can't be controlled", "for most people, this is all they need", "this would take major customisation and a ton of work", "it takes 4-6 hours of tinkering with it", "this is as good as it gets"! o_O:-D

He make it seem very hard to customize frames. The hard part is knowing what you have. Knowing where you want to go is the 2nd hard part. Then you use the TWU customizers which will tell you where to put the lead tape. Good Grief.

This is an especially easy matching where one would not even need the TWU calculator to get really close to the desired spec.
1) 4g at 1200 (adds roughly 12 to SW and 4mm to balance).
2) counterbalance with 14g under the buttcap trapdoor with some tungsten putty (brings balance down 14mm, adds about 1-2 to SW).

That would most likely finish off with 325g / BP 320mm / 316-318 SW. Far closer to what he got to in far less time.

Fair comment, he does provide useful gear information given his position in tennis retail. I'm not sure his customisation videos are worth his time making though!
