    Closer to 5 or 3?

    I just did 13.75-13.3 = .45 and thats all i know. Auto thanks for that formula.

    PED, you are saying 6 pts and then we have 2 posters saying 3.6. I feel like my balance should be under 4.

    I have lead at 12 and a dampener and a tournagrip on the handle. How could it possibly be 6?

    13,3 inches * 2,54cm = 33,782cm

    You have 0,45 inches.
    Now 1 point is 0,125 of an inch.

    0,45/0,125 = 3,6

    coo..thanks..I see why Tsonga would be more HL at 346, but 6 pts for me made no sense. My racquets weigh 324 grams, and 6 pts HL is not needed.

    this is perfect since I prefer close to even balance. I could add more lead in the future if I wanted and get the SW higher and the balance closer to 1-2pts.

    Im going to get my SW measure on an RDC because I cant seem to get it right using the TWU tool.

    PP & Automatix, sorry, I read the balance as 13, not 13.3.

    That does indeed translate to 33.8cm

    Don't forget that he does not play the racquet without overgrip so his true playing weight is around 350 and certainly less than 33cm bal probably around 32.6 cm
