Sure, can you comment on grip size, static weight and balance etc. and whether pallets are Head or Wilson shape, and if the racquet has been extended, or was cut at that length? Thanks, JMac

Grip size is L3 Wilson molded handle, 319g, it is head heavy 35.5 cm with Wilson leather grip. It was cut to lenght, pro plays With XL racquets. Also interested in trades for standard lenght H19 or H22

They should just bring back the 6.1 line...best racquets of all-time!
I’m with you..playing with the 6.1 95 18x20 (2017 re-issue) in the mid 40’s. This frame and the RF97 play excellent with out having to do a tremendous amount of modifications. Just a bit of lead tape here and there.

Thanks for info! :) With a balance that high that must be an absolute beast to swing; be fun for cross court rally drills though!

It is obviously asking for weight in the handle, given the low static weight. I didn’t bother because it is not standard, so didn’t want to mess with it. Playing as is should be very hard.

Hello H22 experts,

Can someone please confirm, did I just bought the H22 in a CV paintjob?

No the string pattern looks different from H22. H22 has skip at 8T. Yours has 2 skips at the bottom.

No, unfortunately not. Beam shape (a D instead of more rectangular), grommet endings (curved edge instead of more V), and string pattern make it a Blade. Whether it's a pro stock blade or not, I'm not sure.

Looks like a prostock blade to me. As mentioned above, the beam shape and string pattern reflect a blade mold, and the glossy paint suggests a pro-stock frame. Hope you didn't purchase this under the impression that it was a H22!

Thanks, guys!

The price was very good and the seller didn`t know anything about the racquet and I had a little time for the investigation so I decided to buy it. I thought it could be H22 but I must say that I am very impressed by the racquet and knowing that I own now a prostock Blade. :)

Hello everyone, old post but..
I'm new to the club.
I use a pair of pt57a as regular weapons, and also pack a RF97 Just in case.
Recently I bought a H22 in pro Staff pj.. as a substitute for the RF. (Wich Is basically too stiff for me).
It came with terribile stretched Blade grommets and whoknows Hybrid strings.
Specs were 345gr. 34mm balance.
Had no lead visibile and silicon had been removed from inside the handle.
This was molded and with Wilson cap, but in a more 'oval' shape. To finish... It was wrapped in the finest calfskin .. by head.
Soon I will try to take It to my pt specs. Should be more like 345-350gr, 31,5 or 32mm balance and 345-350sw.

PS: head pellet go on easily on Wilson hairpins at least those I've seen.
I use no tape but 3M Photo Spray Mount repositionable glue.

Hope to useful ti Simeone as You have been to me.
 
Ah the maybe last thing.
Wilson hairpins I have known have this Little dip in the .. where the pellet goes.
They use a steel cylinder cut to length, to give the frame the right balance.

Calling all H22 aficionados. I am talking with a seller of several H22's one is a 16x19. I love my 18x20 so much that wanted to test the open pattern.

Seller claims that there are basically 2 layups or kinds of H22 (at least in the 16x19 in configuration) An approximately 300g bare bone stock that is then customized for players and a heavier version that is about 325g with silicone + something?? that is permanent (or cannot be removed). I was going to go with the heavier racquet and try removing the silicone etc. but he claims that the heavier reacquet cannot be made to match the bare bones version.

This isn't in line with what I've been reading about the H22 and Wilson pro stocks but my knowledge is very limited.

PS: I currently have the H22 and H19 18x20's.

That is the version that he is selling, but he's had the lighter ones in past. I was going to go with the heavier racquet and try removing the silicone etc. but he claims that the heavier reacquet cannot be made to match the bare bones 300g version.

This isn't in line with what I've been reading about the H22 and Wilson pro stocks but my knowledge is still pretty limited.

I wanted to try the 16x19 version before I commit.

Go with the 300 grams one, you can modify it to your specs. The heavier ones have epoxy resin filled handle, difficult to remove it, but not impossible. I have drilled the epoxy out on a pair of H22’s and I’ve found also lead weights into the exopy.
