Does anyone know if this racket is head light? Someone gave this racket to me and I just want to know if the racket is head light or head heavy. I think it's the same as this specs wise except for the length because mine does not come with the "+" at the end. I also wanna ask if this will be arm friendly if I will be stringing it with synthetic gut at 50lbs.

An exact name would be very helpful. Wilson recently had used the Ultra and Ultra XP. Prior to those, there was a slew of frames with the name Ultra yada yada. Most of those OS frames had ranges of 55-65# for recommended tensions. You can certainly go lower.

To determine if a frame is HL, use the edge of a table with the hoop hanging off the edge. Mark the spot when the butt cap lifts off the table. Measure the distance between mark and edge in mm. Measure length of frame in mm. For example, if frame is 658 mm long and balance point is 315 mm, then the frame is HL since EB point is 326 mm.

I see. I will be measuring it later thank you for that. I thought that was the name because that is all that is written on the case. The frame however has XSL letters on it so could that be its exact name or is this one fake? Here are the pics: https://ibb.co/kGKsYKt https://ibb.co/WgGh7S2 https://ibb.co/gFwjgJV

I compared your image to what I found via Google. It is a Big Box Sporting Goods frame, meaning it is available only from places like that; not TW etc since the current Ultra models are blue. Have no idea about composition and doubt that it is a fake since it does not match with the current Ultra color scheme.

That’s a late 90’s early 2000’s Ultra that was a low end big box store racquet. XSL stands for extra super light, meaning the weight of the frame. Most likely around somewhere in the 10oz range
