Headlight is when most of the weight of the racquet is located around the handle and throat instead of the head.

Lights in front of the car... cars usually have one on each side.

Yup there is...

Take the total length of the racket .. divide by 2 (27/2 = 13.5 inches).. that would be even balance. You can use a edge of butter knife to see where the balance point is... if it is more to the head... say 14.5 inches(from the butt end).. that would be head heavy... say it is about 12.5 (from the butt end).. then that would be head light.

Hope that helps!

you can try hanging the racquets throat on one of your fingers and seeing which way it drops and compare racquets.... alot of people do this. of course, not certain that's the halfway mark on every racquet, but it's worked pretty well for me.

What if my racquet is 27.25 inches long?

Then.. it's 13.625 inches. Just try to go as close to it as you can if you don't have a ruler that can get that detailed.

how do you exactuly find how much balance points your racquet is?
what do you need to know first?
thanks

balance it on a beam or a pencil and measure that balance point from the handle.

How can I do it with a pencil? So i go to 13.625 inches?
And see which way it falls.

there's a reason it's called balance point :)

Headlight, often called Headlamp is a lamp,usually attached to the front of a vehicle such as a car, with the purpose of illuminating the road ahead during periods of low visibility, such as night or precipitation. While it is common for the term headlight to be used interchangeably in informal discussion, headlamp is the technically correct term for the device itself, while headlight properly refers to the beam of light produced and distributed by the device.
