measure the racquet length. then from the median of the the lenth, balance it and see whether it shifts to the head or the handle

Exactly. Standard racquets are 27", so the middle would be 13.5". Put a round pencil on a level table under the 13.5" mark (it should be somewhere along the throat) of your racquet. If it tips forward (head), then it's head heavy.

BTW, make sure your racquet is strung.

And that the pencil is sharpened.
