Now I'm wondering if I'm "wasting" too much energy trying to hit the "heaviest" ball I can. This could be a bad idea. Not sure.

Thoughts?
How much damage does your heavy ball really do to your opponents? Obviously generating those heavy balls is doing damage to yourself, so is the tradeoff worth it? If not, you are helping your opponent wear you down and beat you.
