I think it is supposed to generate the topspin, at this point I am thinking that since I generate all my powers by letting the momentum built through my loop backswing, I feel like as I guide the racket forward and up, the mass or the weight on top of the racket will creates an extra pull, which build velocity. But I am not the right person to say this, it seems that way in my mind. So, as a result, I think that creates more lift that produces some more topspin. I also realized today that my shots seem to be a bit deeper than when I used normal weight, so maybe the weight at the top caused the racket face to open a bit more than normal, maybe?? I don't know, but I am enjoying the results so far. Hope you have a good experience too. Btw, I looked through hundreds of Fed's pictures this year n not a single one is he hitting with the white side up (new pj).
