    i've noticed that most heavy racquets tend to be head-light.

    just bought my discounted HPS 6.1 and love for 70% of shots, but having trouble with 2HB when i think i hit fairly far up the upper hoop.

    so i'm going to add some lead tape to move up the sweet spot a little.

    i was wondering what are the heavy racquets that aren't too head light?? either LM prestige or instinct. anything else??

    as an aside, i love lead tape but i don't like to use too much (eventually if you use too much, you may as well be using some cheap model)

    thanks in advance!!!

    tom- I don't think the prestige or the instinct fit your bill. The prestige is like 8 pts HL and the instinct while more head heavy than the prestige is lighter than the prestige.

    the catch-22 with heavy racquets that are less head light balanced is that they have higher swingweights.
