I like to add weight to the handle on my frames. I very rarely add weight to the head. I guess if I played at a higher level I might want a little more lead up top, but for now I didn't really see much of an advantage to it when I tried it.
If you add weight to the handle, you're making the racquet more head-light? or just adding to the static weight?
