But with that comes full range of weight distribution and balance customization you do not get with other rackets.

It takes all of maybe 20 min to put the lead on if you have to take off the base grip - I don't see what the big deal is.
Pure Control Tour: leather+og, 5g lead up top, 16L poly @ 52lbs = 12.68oz
