It matters how you hit though. If you punch the ball and prefer placement without a more modern swing and come to the net often, heavy can be better.
If you hit with a lot of top....
I am finding success with a 305 stick as long as the SW is healthy.
The way to test this for me is really focusing on serve. a little lighter stick helps my timing, especially in later sets.
