    Say two rackets are head light. One is 5 pts head light, and the other is 8 pts head light. I want to experiment making the 5 pt head light racket, more like the balance of the 8pt racket.

    Thoughts on how I would do this? I'm not much of a customization expert. I assume I should add some weight to the handle.. but I don't know how much. i.e. how much weight specifically translates to the 3 pt balance difference. Thanks!

    I think, first you have to weigh them to see if you can add any weight.

    . . . but a bigger issue . . .

    Balance point doesn't equate to swingweight.
