    Hi

    I did a little experimenting and I have added 4 grams to my POG Mid. (2grams at 3 and 2 grams at 9 o'clock). I played a match and must say I did feel a little more stability but the problem was my strokes were completely off. I was late on all the shots and my shots lacked depth. It was a completely different feel. I feel like taking of the lead right now but I still feel on the other hand that I should stick with it and get used to the extra weight. What are your thoughts on this topic? Should I stick with it or go back to stock weight? How was your experiences with customized racquets like and how long did it took you to get used to the new weight?

    Thanks

    4 grams should not make a big difference in playability IMHO. Maybe it's just mental at this point?
