    hi guys

    i was using the stock K90 (America version) and i read that this racket is 12 points head light on its spec. I have another one that is Asian version and it's 9 points head light, as my games improved i actually found that i played better with the asian version! (I can feel it clearly, and I don't know why. maybe it's like 20 grams less than the usa version? or maybe because the balance?)

    so my question is, how to turn my america K90 to 9 points head light? I think weight is not really a problem for me i mean it's just 20 grams and also i feel almost no weight diff by these 2 sticks.

    and as far as i know i can buy some lead tapes i guess? but i have no idea how to do that with my racket to turn it into 9 points head light


    Thanks for reading and helping!really appreciate it!! :)

    20 grams is actually quite a lot for a tennis racquet. You may not feel the difference as much because the Asian version is balance more head heavy than the US version.

    Try removing the leather grip from your US version to reduce the overall weight and to make it more head heavy.

    Not really because the extra weight is inside the composition of the frame so there's really no other way to make it lighter (and make it less headlight).

    so the lead tape thing doesn't work (assuming that I am stronger and weight is not a problem for me)

    You can try it but it'll just make the racquet swing heavier.
