    I want a little more feeling in the head, a la 4-5 points head light. my current racket with grip and overgrip is 7-8 points head light, I refuse to add lead, as it knocks the swingweight up way too much, I want to take off the grip and just wrap 2-3 overgrips on the handle? Does anyone foresee any other complications to doing this?

    My logic-
    grip + overgrip= 20+5= 25grams

    3 overgrips= 15grams. So, 10grams lighter in the handle should equal about 2-3 points more headlight, but how much will my swingweight be affected?
    Does anyone play this way?
