Care to post your proof?

Swingweight is the resistance to movement in a circle. Circular motion (as in most stages of a tennis swing) occurs around a center or rotation, let's say the butt end of the handle.

Swing weight is a measurement of mass in motion. The racquet handle is clamped to an RDC machine and the racuqet is swing back and forth; any mass out from the clamped rotation point is going to to be read by the RDC. How will mass on that point be read?
