Does that sound right or am I missing something? That's a big change in SW.
I also use the Babolat. I put on 2 layers and overlap them by 2/3rds. That way it covers the entire beam and adds a bit or extra protection to the top of the head. Two layers is about 4-5 grams. This will definitely increase swingweight since it's basically being added at 12 o'clock (continuously from 10-2 o'clock)
