    Didn't want to resurrect an old thread so I thought I'd just start a new one. I'm looking to make a balance board of my own and am having a little trouble in determining the placement of the tape measure in relation to the dowel. Should the dowel sit just before the 1" on the tape measure, directly above it? Thanks for any help.

    Basically the point where the dowel is located is 0". Once you balance the racquet on the dowel, you measure from the dowel to the end of the handle. If it comes out to 13.5", then the racquet is evenly balanced. Anything more than 13.5" is head-heavy, anthing less is head-light. Assuming a 27" racquet of course.
