i agree that some may find the PSL a bit lightweighted. i want to toy around with lead setups more, but i hate unwrapping my grip/overgrip over and over again, you know?

Start by adding the weight to 3 and 9 only. The racket is ridiculously head light unless it's weighted up a bit mid hoop. The stock frame felt like bamboo to me. The PSL is a nice frame when customized properly.

BTW...try my string set up below in the PSL. It's very nice in a 18x20 frame. My other main string fav is SPPP 1.18 (a bit softer)
