    Just wondering if anyone has done this? I love this racket. Plenty powerful for me...just wondering if anyone who has played with it has thought about making it just a little more head light? In stock form, it's about 3-4 points head light. I was thinking it might play better at 5-6 points head light.

    Would this change the swing weight much? Thanks for any comments/suggestions.

    Did this, among other things, on a Pure Drive Plus Cortex. Two 3-gram strips along the handle under the grip. Made the head lighter, but dampened the feel.

    P.S. That racquet was not for me. It ruined my arm and my game. I tried everything but never found the right setup. Sold them after 2 years and went back to more flexible sticks.
