    How far is it from the butt end of the racquet to the 3/9 o'clock position on this racquet? How much does your frame weigh? If you can give me that info, I can tell you what the new balance point will be.

    2 grams total at 3 & 9 is ~1/2 point shift toward the head.

    4 grams total (2 at 3 and 2 at 9) is ~ 1pt shift toward the head.
