    Unfortunately my inageshack demo expired and i cant post any more puctures.

    But it is 302 grams LIGHT with strings and overgrip. So i guess 285 g unstrung. So 40g lughter tgan the real pt630. Nonetheless since i likecequal balance or slight head heavy frames i could just put lead at the throat to make it more stiff feeling and/or lead at the handle and a heavier basegrip to make it 315-320 strung and SW of 330-350. Should play fine but not like pt630..

    http://www.imagebam.com/ is a good image sharing site you should try it. What about the beam width (20 - 21 - 22)? 302g is almost the same that the Vamp Tour 630 i have with string and overgrip without a base grip. It would be interesting to know what code is in the hairpin under the pallet.

    Beam is alot like the pro lite xl i have. I have a pro tour xl and will compare.

    Beam is just a little thicker and rounder than prestige tour 660.
    Also at the throat the trisys pro 630 is a little thinner and less boxy than the graphite tour 600. Prestige most boxy. Graphite tour 600 is more boxy at the throat but the same beam from 9-03 as trisys pro 630.

    I will send pictures. I dont know if it is worth getting a 2nd trisys pro 630 for 30 euro.. what do you think..

    I guess it is kind of like a pro lite tour.. how head heavy is the pro lite ?
    The vamp tour should be shorter than standard lenght btw..

    2mm is not much though. The old head women rackets were even shorter between 5mm and 1cm shorter. I think my lady pro racket is around 8-10 mm shorter but i didnt measure it.

    One other thing i could find was the code on the head bumper. Tk 55A.. but i think i have seen this on radical tour, graphite tour also.

    So is TK 55A not a special code?
    Is it like the handle pallet codes that can fit many rackets?

    Awesome! Even though it says designed in Austria on it, it made in Austria. It has the white barcode sticker on the inside of the throat. Also the Austrian label in the grip. If you take a closeup of it I can tell you when it was made.

    Is this the same as the green Lite Tour? I've got a green one that says Made In Austria though, but the bumper and beam width seem very similar.

    Yes, I think it should be the same...maybe the green one was marketed in Europe and the blue in USA.
    VS certainly know it

    I think it is not possible for a racket of 20 years ago to be in USA/Canada even if originally marketed for Europe.
    Anyway mine was only an hypothesis, since I live in Europe and I've always seen for sale the green one here.
    I'm sure a much expert poster than me will give you a definitive answer soon.

    That's completely possible. I've never actually seen another Lite Tour in person, so it may have been a one-off thing.

    I managed to pickup a great condition Head PT630 in this tiny little tennis shop in Tokyo late last year! I managed to talk them down to 8500 yen - which is about $110 aussie dollars.
    It was like walking into a little tennis wonderland - they had all these classic racquets for sale at great prices. I could only choose one though and ended up with the PT630!:D

    The used Japanese market is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

    It was a little tennis shop near Shibuya station, about 5 minutes walk in the quieter side of the station.
    It was a great find, only noticed it because we were staying nearby!

    I recently tried PT630 from friend of mine and I was simply thrilled how it felt and played so I bought myself one.
    Best racquet I played with by far.
    I also replaced old base grip with Prince ResiPro and now it is in perfect shape :cool:
    Here is the beauty:

    However, there was annoying rattling noise inside racquet frame, so I took off the butt cap and removed stuff from inside. I am not sure what this is. Do you have any idea perhaps?

    That is drill flash, pieces of graphite left over from drilling grommet holes. Completely normal and quite common. They can come loose when hitting and begin rattling.
