    Dear TW,

    I received my Alpha balance board but I am having trouble with the conversion. How do you convert 31.4 cm into points HL?

    Thank you.

    31.4 cm is equivalent to 12.3622047 inches or about 12.375 inches.
    I am guessing your racket is 27 inches long so even is 13.5 inches.
    13.5-12.375=1.125 inches=9/8 inches or 9 pts head light.

    Yes, it is a 27 inch long frame.

    Thank you, Mr. Zhou!

    The balance point in reference would be from the butt cap. So 31.4 cm from the butt cap is the balance point.

    Your welcome Samster.

    Correct, 31.4 cm is where the butt cap lines up at.

    Your alpha balance board should have a 1/8" scale. Each 1/8 is a point HL.

    Hope this helps
