    I contact the ball just above the midline, which may well be why I prefer loosely strung rackets, and why I probably don't care for tightly strung demos.

    I want to raise my sweetspot but do not know how much weight you need to add to move it 1 to 2 inches. Anyone know what the relationship is to added weight and sweetspot movement?

    My new theory...find a very headlight 11 oz racket and add weight at 3 and 9 in sufficient quantity to move the sweetspot while keeping the racket headlight with a SW no greater than 330.

    Let me be more specific:

    If I add 1/2 oz to my Price Diablo at 3 and 9 (bringing it up to 11.8 oz), how much will my sweetspot move? Is there a way to determine where a racket's sweet spot is?

    Add lead at 10 and 2. You'll raise and expand the sweet spot, but the racquet will be more sluggish.
