    I've changed grip (from synthetic to leather) and added an overgrip, and measured the balance at 32.5cm. I'd like to move it to 31.7 to match my older stick. I suppose I should add a few grams in the handle.. how many grams should I add and how would that change the racquet in swing weight etc? Would sw be higher or lower once I add weight in the handle?

    Adding mass in the butt will change the balance the most efficiently. If you have a removable trap door you can simply add 8 grams of lead or blue tack or what have you. Each gram added in the butt will make the frame 1mm more headlight. So you need 8 grams to get to 31.7 cm from 32.5cm.
