On top of this, as I've been playing more in the last couple of years, I've been generally adding lead to the head. The handles are different too, though all theoretically L3, but I'm just living with that.
This is another reason why customization has become so prevalent today. Manufacturering tolerances vary from brand to brand, so customization can make all of the racquets feel and perform the same. Usually how is starts for all advanced and pro players.
