View Full Version : Help: how to take weight of the handle ?

01-05-2006, 02:19 PM
I think, I have hit the weight comfort limit, trying to make my MP tour 5 more head heavy (why - is out of the topic).
I have decided to try to take some weight from the handle.
The only solution I see at the moment is to take off that overgrip I put on,
which means of course that the grip will be stuffed soon.
Any other suggestions on how it can be achieved?
Lighter grips, etc?

You can do that, or you can take off the replacement grip and play with only one or two overgrips. You can cut the handle, but the frame will be shorter. You may also have the handle repoured with perhaps less dense material.

Thanks for that.
What about leather grip? Never played with one.
Could it be lighter? Does it need overgrip?

Geees, now I am thinking of a drill and some holes...

I think you should just accept what you have got!

BTW, you can put lead under the bumper, but I'm sure you already have done so, problem is of course that the racket gets very heavy. The drill idea was funny but it would not make a big difference if you make some holes in the grip :(

or you can always work out and add some lead on the head....to change the balance
