View Full Version : Customizing a Wilson HH 5.3 OS

07-30-2008, 11:18 PM
Well this racket is just a spare racquet lying around in my room that I dont even touch anymore and its about 8.3 ounces unstrung, 8 points HH, 27.5 in. long, and 110 sq. in. headsize. It's way too light and stiff for me so I just wanted to see if I could customize it to the point where I could use it as a spare racquet without hurting my arm. I'm thinking of making it more or less even balanced and weighing around 11 ounces strung. Any suggestions? BTW does this even sound like a good idea or a waste of time?

maybe add 4 oz of lead to the handle? hahaha iv really never customized a racquet since i do think a racquet is made the way it is for a reason.

but hey, kinda makes sense. maybe it might even play well.

I have a 6.3 mid to which I have added significant weight on the handle from just above the hand to about 8 1/2 " up the handle. Adding weight this way does not make the racket feel heavy but makes it play much more solidly.
