Recently acquired a 4-stripe OS (1987) and am playing well with it and love the feel (for an OS), but it really feels head-heavy. For the record, after adding an overgrip (and keeping the original leather underneath) it balances almost exactly where the strings in the throat grommet make their u-turn.

Reading the above thread, it says the version 6 ("Tour") versions have lower swingweights in the mid, but on the OS TW lists the SW as 333, which is still pretty high. Anyone have any info' on the balance of the "Tour" or other versions in the OS that could be less head heavy? Even if someone with a "Tour" or "Straight Shaft" (versions 6 or 5, I think) could just indicate where they balance at, I would be extremely grateful.
