I've been using the gravity pro for 2 years now, and I have 3 rackets, and 1 of rackets just feels so much heavier. I am not sure if it's because of the balance or smthg but compared to the other 2 it's not manoeuvrable and feels completely different......What do I do??

1. Get them weighed and measured by someonw who has a 3-1 RDC machine.

2. Customize so that two of them are matched.

3. Sell the 3rd

Unless you want to rely on the good grace of lady luck and hope that your racquets arrive on-spec off the retail/online shelf, I would encourage you to learn how to measure your racquet specs (weight, balance point and swingweight). This way there is no guessing needed when it comes to situations such as your current one.

At least weight and balance which are easily done at home and are a good starting point. Swingweight can appear a little more complicated to measure, but there's really nothing to it if you have an iOS device:

Switch to Yonex! :p
Sorry for trolling your thread, seriously if you can’t get them to someone that has a RDC machine at the very least get a digital kitchen scale and compare them. If the racquet that is slightly off is in fact way off specs, maybe sell an replace it with a new one?

Nice racquets generally and high QC. However, Yonex grip sizes are a little large(r) with less buttcap flare when compared with the equivalent sizes of other mainstream manufacturers. It bothers me enough to the extent that I won't ever buy Yonex as a result.

I have two from two separate retailers.

The first came unstrung and was the exact balance and static weight that TW gave as their averaged stats. The second came pre-strung and had the exact static weight but was 32.5cm balance (done on the edge of the table) rather than the 32cm listed value. I haven't checked the SW values.

Both have been modified to 360g strung weight, 31.5cm balance, and the SW feels similar (I haven't checked it - but I have no problem swinging the racquet for several hours). The only difference in the mods is that I added less weight to the head of the racquet as it had a higher balance (but the amount added to the handle was similar).

Now we just have to find the right string combo.
