I wasn't sure if this was for racquets or other equipment.

So I leaded the other POG last night and noticed that, both the same weight (i lapped over) one was longer than the other. Does this make a difference to the playability?

If you don't get what I mean heres a diagram:

Both 6 grams.

Even though each lead tape weighs the same, the two racquets will play differently as the weight is distributed differently. They need to be identical to play identical. Seems commonsense to me.

Yeah i spose that makes sense. I tested both and so far i think i like the longer distribution.

The shorter length will have lower swingweight. But the longer length will stretch the sweetspot better.
