how do i exactly find how headligh is my racquet ???
The static measure of weight distribution of a strung tennis racquet. Balanced is measured from the handle (butt) end in points, inches and / or centimeters. Commonly referred to as “points” head light or “points” head heavy. One point equates to 1/8 of one inch. The balance point is measured from the center point of the racquet. Static balance affects the racquet’s swingweight. Balance also affects how heavy or light the racquet “feels.” As a general guideline most of the very-light game improvement racquets are head heavy which is necessary to supply enough mass, which translates into power, to the area of the frame where the is ball is contacted.
For example, a racquet that measures 27.5 inches long with a static balance of 14.75 inches. The racquet’s center or mid-point is 13.75 inches. The racquet’s balance is 8 points head heavy or one inch head heavy, measured from the racquet’s center balance point.
