The new Twistweight Adapter for SW1 is now available. This product is still available to purchase for measurement of racquets with non-standard handles or other applications.
The Twistweight Adapter for SW1 enables an SW1 Racquet Swingweight Machine to measure the twistweight of a racquet by oscillating it about the handle axis. Please watch the how-to video below (or on YouTube) to see how it works. Measuring twistweight precisely just became easy!
I’ve personally tested the adapter with racquets from a wooden Wilson Chris Evert Special Edition to a Head Microgel Radical Oversize. It should work with all typical tennis racquets, but some extreme racquets may not mount securely.
Will it work with pickleball paddles? Yes, most paddles fit with a simple hack. See this short video on Instagram. If you’d like a set of the silicone bumpers shown in the video, just ask in the order comments. Additional build-up may be required for thin paddles or those without an edge guard.
Like the SW1, the plastic components of the Twistweight Adapter are 3D printed from PETG. The motion system components are stainless steel.
