It makes total sense, but is tough for me to answer. The reason is, what you feel is what you feel. What I mean is, you will have to hit them side by side and see what you feel and what you like/dislike. Try the V1 with some weight on it and see how you like it. Depending on where you add the lead, you can actually help the racquet come around. For instance, a little weight at the tip and countered at the handle can help you accelerate the racquet through contact to the point that it negates the added effort required to get it moving.
