If you are having trouble getting the racket around in time on the backhand I suggest increasing static weight and making your racket more headlight. Swingweight will increase slighty but the headlight balance will around you to get it around better. I keep my racket 13.3oz and 10pts HL; the backhand is my better wing and I can drive balls that are over my head because I let the racket and its heft do the work.
for me i have found a 299sw donnay yellow/silver light 99 squin strung at a low, bouncy 50lbs tension does well-er than other rackets i have used to counter the high-bouncy to the backhand...a firm flat pop sends it back deep and low, if not all that fast. it has bought me time to recover.
