View Full Version : heavy, more balanced racquet??

01-09-2006, 05:49 AM
i've noticed that most heavy racquets tend to be head-light.

just bought my discounted HPS 6.1 and love for 70% of shots, but having trouble with 2HB when i think i hit fairly far up the upper hoop.

so i'm going to add some lead tape to move up the sweet spot a little.

i was wondering what are the heavy racquets that aren't too head light?? either LM prestige or instinct. anything else??

as an aside, i love lead tape but i don't like to use too much (eventually if you use too much, you may as well be using some cheap model)

thanks in advance!!!

tom- I don't think the prestige or the instinct fit your bill. The prestige is like 8 pts HL and the instinct while more head heavy than the prestige is lighter than the prestige.

the catch-22 with heavy racquets that are less head light balanced is that they have higher swingweights.

Head Classic Tour - 12.1 oz, 5 pts HL, great frame.
