I can understand the 'L' but can you please elaborate the meaning of W in respect of twistweight ? what exactly is the value of 'W' Is it the width of the racket hoop at 9 n 3

W (width) is the distance from the centerline of the racquet to the lead that you've added to the hoop. So on a midplus racquet, where you've added lead at 3&9, W might be about 5.5 inches. If your strips of lead are quite long, so that parts of the strip are closer to the center than others, you'll have to eyeball an "average" distance from the centerline to your strips.
