Thanks for the responses guys. I think I was hoping for a straight "yes go for a X-brand Ace racket", but this is more insteresting!
Despite the many years play I've never customised (other than grips - where can I get a 6 grip these days?!) so apologies, the following are maybe novice queries.
To put in a bit more detail: my older (Head ix5) racquet was actually heavier than the Volkl (320g - two regrip sleeves trying to get the 6!) , but definitely head lighter, so it wasn't "pulling" on the arm as much, which I feel is the problem - is this what is referred to as "swingweight"?
So if I add weight to the grip, will that reduce the swingweight?
Mike - I'll check the video soon as, thanks.
