Hello,
i have a question to all high swing weight experts. In general i play with racquet's that have swing weights about 355-360.
I customize them with a lot of lead all around the head from 12 down to 4 an 8 o´clock and with a second layer at 12.
I like to know from you guys, who also play with such high swing weights, if you have the same lead placement (12 to 4 and 8) or do you have all the lead at 3 and 9.
What do you think are the advantages of these two possibilities.
Sorry for my English but i tried my best.
Thanks

The swingweight on my NXG midplus is up there too..stock it's 338. I refuse to have a big serve twist my racquet. I really only start feeling the weight after about 4 hours of playing, so it isn't an issue.

I have 1 strip of 1/4 inch at 9 and 3 and 2 strips at 12, both sides of the head.

The more at 3/9, the less twisting I guess. You'd have to use more lead there though since it wouldn't have the same swingweight as at 12, or closer to 12. I don't think it would make much difference except that the static weight and balance would be different.

Really depends on the racket and the play style.

I personaly don't use the high swing weights any more, I have seen the light and go no higher than 345.

Guys like Nalbandian, Novak, and Roger can't be wrong:)

go at 10 and 2 like prince suggests (did with its Triple threat racquets)... you get the torsional stability and the headweight.

Usually the more western the grip the lighter the SW
