View Full Version : HL Balance Question

Is it possible for a racket to be 9pts headlight (before stringing) and subsequently drop to 8pts headlight after stringing? Thanks.

It will be more HH for sure.
I think the difference is normally around 2-3 pts more HH, so like 9 pts before stringing and 6pts after stringing.

I'm torn now. That means stock my k90 was 11pts headlight from TW and strung to 8pts headlight. Wilson spec = 12 pts headlight (to 9 pts strung). Maybe adding a tournagrip will get me closer to that 9 marker. ;/

its ok if it becomes for HH because sometimes when its too HL its bad

2 - 3 points less HL as said before.

is there ONE balance that can be recommended for all-round purposes -- without getting into too many ifs and buts.

I find my PS 95 gr8, except i feel in the serve department it is weak, whereas my nblade (which i pull out once a week) is better in serves (its about 1-2HL).

I think weighting the frame a bit will make it good for serves, but will it compromise other areas?

So for recreational players is there a small range or one balance that can be recommended. I prefer HL but i do not understand the pros and cons of say, 10HL and 6HL and 1-2HL.

I also understand that adding some weight on the frame may give more power to my baseline groundies. What cons can be generally expected ?

its all about power, control and maneuverability
