    looks like there is not much bumper guard on this racquet so is it worth trimming to reduce SW ?

    thanks for any input.

    I found that the flex in the hoop made the top of the stringbed a bid dead on the C-10 Pro. Reducing the weight out on the end of the frame would probably magnify that deadness for me. You might want to make the racquet more headlight by putting some weight on the handle before you do something more permanent like trimming the bumper.

    isn't it putting weight in the handle, will make it HL, but will increase the SW..?
    from 16g string , changing to 18g string, will it reduce the SW...?

    fuzz - will give that one a try. not much bumper guard there anyway so i don't think trimming would do much.

    bagung - putting weight in the handle will increase static weight and reduce swing weight (or so i've read). already using 17g now. 18g would not last long enough for me.

    i doubt it by putting weight on the handle will lower the SW......
    more head-light is possible....
    to reduce SW, you have to take off some weight, so as the static weight....
