Just wondering abt your setups for this racquet. I strung it with BHS7T 1.25 on mains and Signum Hextreme 1.20 on crosses at 48lbs. Got 3g of lead at 12. The launch angle is quite low now and then still I find which I like but I would like a bit more clearance. Lovely feel otherwise.

Regarding getting more clearance... try using thinner gauge strings, and try stringing the crosses at a 2-3 lbs deficit (48M/45C or 48M/46C).

I also found it helpful to add a smaller amount of weight at 2,4,8, and 10 (maybe 0.25-0.5g in each location), in addition to 3,9, and 12, and then counter-balance the handle to keep the same or greater HL balance based on preferences.

My setup: I added 1g at 3 & 9 o'clock, 0.5g at 2,4,8, and 10, 3g at 12 (which covers the top 10 Mains), then I counter-balanced with 5.6g at 7" above the handle (top of handle), 3-4g of Tungsten Putty inside the butt cap, and two overgrips wrapped several times around the butt cap first to give greater flair (first with no overlap and second as standard). This brings me to a static weight of 353g, a balance of 315mm, and a SW estimate of 340-345 (strung). My racquet is currently strung with Weiss Cannon Red Ghost (1.18mm) in the Mains, and Klip Tournament XL Syn Gut (1.20mm) in the Crosses @ 46 lbs (no differential due to the difference in strings - but I may try a 2 lbs differential next time around just to see what happens). It plays great.

Hope that helps.
