For about six months I've been playing with some O3 whites with the hard grommet and for the most part I'm quite happy with the sticks. Last week however, more out of curiosity than anything else, I demoed the MG Extreme Pro and I loved it. It played very similarly to the whites except that the extra weight really allowed me to punch through the ball and the spin was out of this world. I still find the white gives me a crisper feel and on serve, despite excellent control with the MG, I get more pop with the whites.

So essentially my question is this, What would be the best way to go about customizing my whites to the MG's specs. More specifically, I would like to reach the same weight and swingweight as the MG Extreme Pro.

On a very related note, I've never customized a racquet before and I don't know how effective it would be to try to emulate another stick. So is it worth the endeavor or should I just switch sticks??

Thanks.
