How do the manufacturers manage different grip sizes and keep same balance point? Does it mean that they make different frame for each grip size, even if it's the same model?

i know that yonex tends to make heavier frames for larger gripsizes. i asked my local shop owner why 1/8 and 1/4 grip size rackets have different tension recommendations than 3/8 and up, and he said that yonex tends to make their larger gripsize rackets heavier, which in turn makes them a bit stronger
