I am finding these lighter sticks play amazing and you can play at a very advanced level with a stick that is 11.5. It is basically a myth at this point that you need a heavy players stick unless your game is just more classic and thats what you play best with it.

But also in my experience if you bring the balance to 6-7 points while the racquet is at that weight, you will lose some of the magic of the stick. If anything, you can just put a little lead at 12 and make the stick 2-3 points HL and it will plow better and play bigger for you.

IMO Re balancing to the standard 6-8 pts HL is not really needed when the racquet is in the mid 11oz range.
