This equates to a super maneuverable racquet that doesn't launch like a n00b-cannon. The only downside is that I wish it were a little more stable on off-center shots. Does anyone know how to correct this, without increasing the swing-weight?
I think my only option, so far, is the lead at 3 and 9. Hopefully it won't make a noticeable difference in swing-weight.
Of course all of this is highly subjective. One man's club is another man's scalpel. 10g of lead at 3 and 9 doesn't make the SW that much higher and it DOES make it more stable on off center hits. It also makes the upper hoop a little more playable IMO. The upper hoop (as in 2" above center) in stock form is mush.
