Do you find a racquet that is not so HL balance makes it easier to hit with topspin?

    Seems like adding lead at 10 & 2 to a Microgel Extreme Pro made my shots spinnier than the stock 7pts HL balance.

    Yes, in General, a head heavier racket will make it easier to generate topspin.

    Funny, I always felt that more HL racquets made it easier to produce spin because you could get more swingspeed.

    I just recently added a small amount of lead at 10- 2, and found a noticeable amount of added spin.

    agree....just like with APDC, its super HL and its too easy to generate monster over the top, topspin

    If the racquet's already light, adding some lead at 10 and 2 may make the spin/ball heavier. If the racquet's already heavy, lead may impair manuverability/spin generation.
