Hello all,

I recently got the pallet changed in one of my racquets from a 4 1/2 to 4 3/8. The racquet now feels a bit head heavy when it was originally very head light. Are the pallets supposed to be weighted to keep the same balance or do I need to add weight to the handle to bring the balance back to normal?

Changing pallets should not noticeably change weight or balance, did you change RG or have an OG on previously that you don't have on now?

When I changed pallets on my MG Prestige Pro, we weighed them before and after and there wasn't much of a difference. At least of the head rackets, the pallet seemed to be made out of pretty light plastic.

Do you have previous weight and balance measures for your sticks / or from a non-modified racket? You could weight them now and check balance, then compare and make changes if needed.

Maybe I'm just used to lighter racquets. When reading TW stats on how headlight a frame is, is that with or without strings/grip?

I'm sure it's with a stock grip. Not so sure if it's with strings, though I guess it probably is.

TW specs are for strung racquets.
