Did you receive my email from the admin? I'm just wondering if it went to the right email address.
Hi, yea I got it and will reply in a few minutes.
Here my info and I replied to e-mail too:
Swingweight is 333.5 measured with iPhone swingweight tool.
Wristband: I wear a single in cool weather and double in hot humid weather.
FH Grip: I use a forehand grip that is between an Eastern and SemiWestern - very close to SW
Grip Size: volkl 4 1/4 originally, then replaced with Babolat Skin Feel grip and overgrip. Also some lead under the grip so it is probably a touch less than 4 3/8 when I play.
Choke up or down: I grip my FH below the center of the handle. The butt of my palm is on the grip but just inside the racket butt.
MgR/I: I have measured this and it is 20.9.
Distance from top of shoulder (joint where arm connect to socket) to tip of middle finger is 30".
Thanks a lot. It's appreciated.
Just a few more questions, as some the questions weren't detailed enough.
Is the wristband on your playing hand?
Do you have a personal MgR/I value that you tune your racket to? Preferably, this would have been something you'd reached through trial and error with lead tape.
Usually wear wristbands on both wrist. If wearing only 1 band, it is always on FH wrist.
I didn't specifically start out tuning to a specific MgR/I value but noticed that just under 21 was where I usually ended up. So, I do actually put my specs in the MgR/I excel spreadsheet that I downloaded from TT. I do it out of curiosity and am not 100% convinced it is a magic formula but like I said I tend end up around 20.9 even if weight, balance and SW are slightly different.
