    What exactly are you talking about? Are you referring to tailweighting a racquet?

    By polarizing (I think I have the name right), I am refering to the method described in all of the SW2 threads where one has a racquet with a given balance point, and loads up both the tip of the racquet and the but with lead, there by increasing the swing weight while keeping the balance point the same. Run a search for SW2 and you'll find much more info.

    I wanted to experiment with this method and was asking for suggestions on what racquet to test it out on.

    As you want to just "test", do your test on any racket you want.

    Best would be your main racket as you will be able to feel the change more drastically than on other rackets that you don't normally use.
