View Full Version : LM radical - weighting to 11.8 ounces - HELP TRAVELRJAM

09-28-2006, 01:30 AM
Just demoed a LM radical MP. I am in the UK and they are selling them for the equivalent of $60 and my friend bought a couple.

Nice racquet.. great feel, topspin etc. BUT just feels a little too light. Sooo easy to swing.

I want to weight the racquet up a bit. But I don't want to increase the swingweight too much.

4 pts headlight, 11.2 ounces, 325 swingweight

Target specs
7-8 pts headlight, 11.8-13 ounces, not too high swingweight

Where do I add weight to make the racquet around 11.8 ounces consistent with the ideal pro balance line (from travelrjam)?

im not travelrjam but i know that adding weight to 12 is for swingweight, but if you don't want it too high then I'm not sure. Have you seen the cool spreadsheet that guy made for customising racquets?

what youre looking for is actually a LM prestige but since hes already bought :
make a mark on the bare handle 10cm (or wherever he holds it)
put single pieces or wrap lead tape around that mark
and of course put back the grip
should be fine :)
