Hi, can anyone help me calculate the swingweight and/or balance of my modified mfil 200?

Stock:
SW: 337
Balance: 6 pt headlight

Modification:
4 grams at 9/3 o' clock total
8 grams in handle

Thanks

Interesting..
So do I just measure the distance from butt to to the 9/3 o clock position?

What happen if I added weight to 2 location, the 9/3 o clock position and in the butt...it only have one slider for weight added..

You have to measure how far 9/3 o clock is on your racquet...

Racquet jedi,
The distance from bottom of racquet to the 9/3 position is 51 cm.
I placed 4 grams there.

But what about the (8 grams of) lead I placed in the butt of the racquet?
--How do I put those weight intot he equation?
thanks

SW is difficult to calculate from numbers due to differences in weight distribution inherent in different frames. Find a good pro shop who has a Babolat machine and stick it in there...Don't forget to buy some balls or some overgrip or something too...

I assume that if you put 8 grams of lead in the butt, that would be 0-2 cms away from it...

Keep in mind, these are just approximations...

If you wanted to find the real swingweight, you would have to have access to a special type of machine, like the Babolat RDC machine mentioned above...

Hey Obow, thanks for taking the time to do the calculation for me. :)

But I'm thinking about just forget about the swingweight and and balance points and go by a reasonable static weight (probably 12- 12.5 oz )and play to see if it feel comfortable.
