    Picked these up a few weeks ago, not bad bats, but the sweet spot feels a little too low for my liking.

    I would like to make them a bit more solid, but dont want to alter the balance too much, where do you guys recommend adding the weight, from those that have used / play with these rackets.

    cheers peeps

    I thought it was too low, as well, so I've been thinking 2 or 3 grams at 12.

    I added mine to 10/2 ( 12 gave me great pop on my serves).

    your choices are pretty much 10/2 or 12 if you want to move the sweetspot higher. if you don't want to alter the balance too much, then you'll have to counterbalance with weigh in the handle of the racquet.

    Isn't the Radical Pro pretty hefty already?

    Would adding weight at 10 & 2 raise the sweetspot?
    You might need to counter it in the handle to keep it
    headlight???

    Surely counter balancing the bat would mean the sweet sport stays in the same place?

    Not quite. If you add weight anywhere above mid hoop, it will raise the sweetspot. When you counter it with weight in the handle, it is just keeping the overall balance the same, but WILL raise the sweetspot a little.
