    you can add weight just above the handle to achieve the same effect as the trapdoor

    Didnt have lead tape. And I live outside usa so no home depot or lowes for me. I just went to a tennis shop, and they had the wilson weights. Taped 6 inside the handle, and 1 each at 9 and 3, its baout 4 points headlight in my calculations and it feels alot steadier

    Changing grip to a leather one is my first go-to option of adding a weight to the handle.
