I played with the MW 200G before but I find that the swingweight is too low at 315; and the head (hoop) seems to be too "soft" especially when I miss the sweet spot.

What kind of experience should I get if it is the HM 200G? Is the hoop stiffer?

What modification should I make to the HM 200G to achieve
1. swingweight of 320 &
2. 6 pt HL

lead @ 3 & 9 will boost SW and make balance less HL

I just acquired a MW200G and does it feel great! Very solid & crisp impact feel with almost no vibration. It is very headlight and yes, the hoop does flex but it puts the 'sweet' in sweetspot.

My experiences playing with the MW and then the HM...

-The HM felt like the swing weight was heavier for me. Significantly heavier in my mind.

-There was a "crisper" feel on solid hits. Wonderful feeling when you get that sweet spot.

-A lot less stable when missing the sweet spot--this may contradict other reports though, but I felt I was much more punished for missing the sweet spot on the HM than with the MW.

-I thought it was more solid feeling on volleys.

-I preferred serving with the Muscle Weave, but maybe it's me (or maybe I'm less accurate in serving :P)

I have thought about picking up a 200G and end up debating which one to get... I like both the MW and the HM a lot, sometimes I feel I want to go ahead and go with HM, but the MW has been the most comfortable of the two for me. Maybe also the most forgiving between the two. I haven't had the pleasures of trying out the Revelation or Max 200Gs yet.
