Yeah cool, that is the easiest way to do it.

While not the easiest location, inside the pallet might be the most effective location. If the OP's mission is to make the racquet as headlight as possible, while adding the least amount of weight, while not increasing grip size, then what you do is to concentrate as much weight as you can right at the very end of the grip, rather than spread out more evenly higher up on the grip.

If removing the buttcap seems too daunting a task, another option would be to get your Mc Gyver on. I've seen folks here secure coins (quarters) or lead fishing weights to the buttcap with velcro, or super glue, or that gummy stuff you can buy at art stores to stick posters onto walls.
