Has anyone bothered to look into whether PWS is actually weighted or is it mostly a hollow space only serve as a cosmetic reminder for the brand? Just been wondering o_O

Most of Wilson's frames are foam-filled, so it wouldn't be empty. But I can't say I remember whether or not it's filled with any heavier material than the standard Wilson foam.

It used to be useful when rackets were solid graphite, but now it's just mostly cosmetic I'm pretty sure

Someone posted a thread dissecting/weighing/etc in the past. I just don't feel like searching.

IIRC compared to a similar piece of the hoop the PWS were like 2g each.

I recall seeing one of the newer Wilson frames with PWS cross section and it was completely hollow. I'm wondering if PWS is really still a solid construction with the newer frames, or would it make sense to just apply lead strips onto 3/9 positions. PWS was one of the major selling point for Wilson back in the days but I don't know if it serves any actual function these days with the evolution of hollow frames.
