Do you really think that similar racquet specs lead to similar style of play? It's funny. Daniil has very specific technique, it's mostly of his individual data - height, etc., and techniqual background as a junior.
So, hehe or no hehe, i post his racquet real data, i know it, everything else is "jive talking" and i don't interested in it.
Dunno why you got riled up, I was laughing at your eye doctor joke. Thanks for the specs brat, I really appreciate them

TFight 305 with weight of 360 gr? And mould is identical to PS 95.
I meant the tf 305 atp before the dynacore came out. I have it also the PS 6.1 95 and they look very similar but the 305 atp is 18x19. Indeed. His stick is weighted up based on the info you provided.

Have you had a chance to measure the swingweight yet?

310 unstrung; its tournagrip
yea but even strung, that would be like 330 or less. that is really low for ATP tour level player. Remember these guys are hitting against balls coming in at 80 + MPH and at 3000 RPM or more. Those balls if you try to hit it will literally push your racket head backward due to weight of the shot. To combat this, you need high swing weight to stabilize the racket head at impact.

About 345sw strung, which is average for current atp pros (but on the low edge for the top-ranked guys).

Actually Feddy once strung more like 345sw, right in the ball park for modern day pros

Ok, i don't have stock tf 305, think that it is 305 unstrung.

That is surprisingly light for a Pro with a SW I could handle. I assume they are the unstrung specs.
Wait. Something's wrong here. This stick's stock unstrung specs are weight 305g, balance 32cm (7HL), and swingweight 323. How does Thiem sport what looks like in that pic to be like 6 grams of lead at 3 & 9 and end up with a 317g weight, 31cm (much head-lighter) balance and 310 swingweight? The only way that'd be possible would be to core out mucho weight in the handle AND the hoop and then add back more to the handle than the hoop, which includes at least 6 grams. It just doesn't make sense; or what I am I missing here, guys?

What the frick are you talking about?
You're confused
>This stick's stock unstrung specs are weight 305g, balance 32cm (7HL), and swingweight 323
305 is unstrung mass
32 is unstrung balance
325 is strung sw

No need to rail. I did ask if I was missing something. I now get that it's that the quoted sw is strung vs. the other specs, which were unstrung. Thanks for that. What I still don't get, given conventional wisdom that one can only add to sw and not subtract from it, is how one can drop the sw of a frame from 323 to 310-- unless it's that 310 is the unstrung sw. Again, I'm doubtless missing something but I'm here to learn...

310 is the unstrung sw.

Ah, there it is. My thanks to you both. My confusion came from my initial (wrong) assumption that that 310 sw was strung. In the words of classic SNL's Rosanne Rosannadana, "Never mind..."

Good catch! And thanks for correcting the oversight. I'll only note that 'nobody' included @BorgCash himself in his several posts on this thread... But then, maybe it's not 'done' to link to your own content in other threads...?
