A stock Triple Threat Bandit weights in at 9.9 ounces and is 6 points head heavy. Even though it is below 10 ounces strung, if you hold it parallel to the ground the head-heaviness causes a high swingweight and thus the sensation of a "heavier" racquet. I modded mine to have an unknown amount of lead tape at 3 and 9 along with a little over 2 ounces of fishing weights in the handle. The Post Office scale reads 12.3 ounces. Yet, it feels SO light, not at all 12.3 ounces. I have a weighted 12.1 ounce Triple Threat Graphite that feels much, much heavier. Why is this so?
