close to 13 oz.
My POG is 11.6oz, my backup NXG is 12.3.
Hey all you people that answered in grams, way to not answer the question! He said how heavy is your racquet. Grams is not a measurement of weight, but a measurement of mass (matter in an object). Way to go! :mrgreen:
my membership ends tomorrow. whats your first name?
I'm a defensive end in football (6'2, 215) and I only use a 12 ozer. If it's good enough for Rafa, it's good enough for me.
about 11.2 oz strung w/ overgrip
I decided to go with a 11.5 once setup instead of 12 once. Less spin, more stability, more headlight, betta for volleys. Most of mass is at 12, but I have a tournagrip, lead at butt, and some at the top of the grip.
HEY YO "Eli_Ace" WHAT'S THE DEAL? YOU STOLE MY DARN AVATAR! I GOT THE J-BLOCK FIRST! (just kidding... but seriously now.) It's a charity so, spread the wealth.
So apparently, NO ONE plays at the recomended NTRP rating for their racquet? Everyone is playing above, right?
my first name is Bobak, some call me Bobby. whats yours?
i dont really have a membership i just get one of those blue cards because i get lessons from Pat Ryan. i was just there an hour ago.
so just because u play football and u are big means that u can handle big rackets? I dont think so buddy, I know some small kids who hadle some big ass sticks, ie. this kid who benchs 40 max uses a prestige at 12oz.
im jack. u play at a high school?
i didnt play last year but im going to play this year for oak ridge. im a junior right now. do you happen to know an abhinav or neil, they played on the folsom h.s. team last year.
dont know neil, but i know abhi. i just moved to folsom this yr
cool, say hi to abhi for me. i used to live in folsom and i went to folsom high but i moved to el dorado hills after my freshman year.
i hit with abhi, navdeep and neal today after school. our season's starting pretty soon.
Uhhh... we are all charmed by you two Betty's conversation-
Have heard of the phone?
who asked you?
anyway, on my HS varsity team, most players use rackets lighter than 12oz. Among the better players I count 1 Head IS 2, 1 NPS 95, 1 Mfil 300, 1 Aerogel 200 and a couple of PDs
Not a junior anymore... but I like my racquets VERY heavy and VERY HL.
Numbers are just... incidental
(I know, I'm a freak :cry
i use a prince tour diablo and i added lead to it and since then its a beast.
I may add more when i start lifting weights. or may not
i use a FXP heat at about 57lbs strung w/ a wilson pro overgrip i think its about 12oz. i work out a lot tho, and i cant get any power with a really light racquet i need at least 12oz in my hand.
12.9 oz ....
haha umm about 12.1+ not too much tho... hybrid tour strung with overgrip and some lead i guess
My nCode 90s are 13.5 oz, 9 pts HL, and beautiful S & V sticks. Any other juniors here serve and volleyers? I'm not talking about just once in a great while, but actually do it to success consistently in competition? Just wondering. Thanks!
on my tennis team. everyone on the team uses like really light racquets. the number one guy on the team uses the nblade @ 11.4 oz. the number two guy, who is me, uses the dunlop m-fil 200 with a wilson pro overqrip @ 12.2 oz.
the rest of the team uses racquets @ 9.0-10.9 oz.
my prostaff 110 sq. is about 13.5 oz and my new head is about 11.5. you can REALLY feel the difference.
used to use a 13 1/8 oz 85 but now i have a stock k-factor
i'm currently using 11oz ish
but rdy to upgrade to 12oz
Alright, my setup as of tomorrow (upon the arrival of my Heat Shrink wrap) will be 401 - 407 grams (depending on the weight of the wrap... I'm going to talk to my physics teacher about using a scale to measure it) and with a swingweight of a little above 440. However, that's only a test setup, and will probably be down at least a few grams before it's finalized.
Well... I'm close to a serve-volleyer. I'm not confident in my serve, so I tend to play more chip-charge and approach-volley, but that's the only real distinction between me and S&V. I play to pretty good success, though depending on the opponent it would be wiser of me to stay back, because I'm not tall enough, nor quick enough, nor fit enough to run down so many lobs.
