    you will not increase swingweight by adding weight to the grip, adding to tip of the hoop will increase the most swingweight.
    here is excellent tool to figure it out http://twu.tennis-warehouse.com/learning_center/customizationReverse.php

    Swing weight as standardly measured at approx. 10 cm from the butt stays about the same with anything you add to the handle.
    However, you can still notice increase in power and changes in swing behaviour when you increase mass in the handle, because the nature of racquet swing and hit mechanics is more complex than just about swing weight measured at 10 cm from the butt.
