Swingweight/static weight of pro player racquets + evolution

Hi everyone, I'm curious to know the average swingweight and static weight (unstrung/strung) of the pro player racquets, if someone know ? And the difference/evolution of the characteristics of the next-gen players racquets and the "old" generation player racquets ? I just read that Alcaraz uses a stock Babolat PA98 (305g, 317mm balance, and 293 swingweight unstrung), it's the same with the others next-gen players like Rune, Sinner, Fils... ?

Thank's you :)
 
I wonder if substituting static weight with increased racquet head speed & somewhat higher balance is producing some relative inconsistency; higher highs and lower lows if you will, particularly under pressure?
(If Sinner had simply tanked one break point against Rune at 3-4 in the third, the YEC semi-finals equipment landscape would have looked significantly different.)

Lots of differences between the players. Sinner has low static, high sw. Rune and Fils have heavier racket. In general the new generation has lighter static and lighter sw.
