Most have said that the heavier racquets feel lighter than they actually are due to the HL balance and thin beam (faster swing). I hope this will offset the extra mass that I will eventually add to the silver. Now I just need a demo to see for myself. Thanks for sharing jlan.
No problem Yeah, I was pretty surprised at the difference in weight from advertised specs when I got it. I'll probably call and request for the lowest weighted frame when I order the Silver Lite.

The thin beams really do cut through the air very fast, which is why I think they swing lighter than what their weights would indicate. How much weight do you think you'll be adding?
