I also wanted to get the swing weight up a bit as I like a heavier swingweight. It seems that lots of POG users are adding lead....it really helps. Give it a try...whats the worst that can happen?
ps what string setup you using?
Excellent! I pretty much feel the same way - my volleys and serve are 'okay' and was wondering if some added heft would help. I'm very glad to hear of your results. I'm definitely going to try your lead setup as a starting point. I once added some lead to the 9 and 3 o'clock positions, and didn't really love it.. so I'll try what you've done. Great stuff - thanks for sharing.
Regarding my string choice these days.. I tried a number of polys, and have come to the conclusion that it's not for me. I came close with SPPP and another softer copoly, but my arm just couldn't handle it with the frequency I play. I really like the feel and performance of a decent multi main and Gosen OG Micro cross. So right now I have going:
Main: Prince Premier Softflex 16 @ 65
Cross: Gosen OG Micro 17 @ 65
It doesn't last long.. but since I string my own it ends up not being that expensive. Looking forward to trying the lead setup.
