I am trying to decide whether to lengthen or shorten a PD. I am currently using a standard pure drive roddick at 361, 8 pts HL. I have weight at 10/2 and under grip. I want to keep the weight the same, but I am interested in adding between .2 and .25 inches to the racquet. I don't know whether it would make more sense to just buy new +'s and cut them down, or to try and add? Also, does it make more sense for me to just take them to someone who knows what the heck they are doing? I don't like having a full .5 inch, and the rep in my area has told me that he can't get custom made racquets for anyone(though I'm not sure I buy that.) I hit with one that has a little bit extra and the small difference gave my serve 2 or 3 mph but much more importantly I was able to hit a sharper angle in doubles. Obviously I'm a newb here but I take my tennis very seriously and am still playing some events for money in FL. I would greatly appreciate any advice you all have, even if its "go pay somebody to do that such as ..."
