This raises the question in my mind as to how weight is added to a racket in stock form. For example, is a Dunlop Bio 200T essentially of the same material construction as say, a Bio 500. HM6 carbon etc. But the difference in weight is huge. So if the process of adding weight in stock form takes place, can it not be reversed??? I'm asking because I don't know how this increase in weight is acheived unless the base material used to make the racket frame is different.

With most heavy rackets tending to be very head light and light rackets closer to being head heavy, are there weights/silicone or something else going into the handle cavity to add this weight??

With regards to the OP's question. If significant weight can be removed by reversing this process, then the OP can easily add weight back until the desired weight is acheived.
