    Head G360+ Radical Pro 2021

    Dang, looks an awful lot like the minimal bumper on my Gravities... (which are now quite dinged due to the lack of bumper coverage)

    Counterweighting lead at 12 -- your personal rule of thumb?

    Just because it seems like some folks may be overthinking this process, here's what I do: 1) add small amounts of weight around the hoop as needed to reduce dead-feeling spots, 2) add a little to the handle (or a leather grip) to keep a reasonable balance (hopefully without going over 12 oz)...

    I don't suppose they are correcting the too-short-bumper-guard problem (no protection at the sides) with the current grommet strip?...

    Are you sure this pastel purple eyeshadow version isn't a special, ahem, "ladies" edition?...

    Lithium Ion batteries (which this almost certainly is) don't like to be deeply discharged. Not including a way of turning the darned thing off is unfortunately going to benefit Head (assuming we buy replacements) by killing the device prematurely.

    Interesting. I haven't seen mine do that, but kind of wish it would! But a simple switch would certainly be welcome.

    I've often thought about spray painting over that garish traffic-cone orange... (yes, I know plenty of others like it).

    I wish the damn thing had an OFF switch! It eats battery just sitting in your bag.

    I have both as well (as well as a GPro). Do you have any trouble adjusting to the differing launch angles (between Clash and Gravity)? Or did you even that out somehow?

    Head Gravity

    Yes, that rather sucks! It scrapes and makes it hard to hide lead tape. I'm guessing they didn't do cap grommets because that is a Prestige/Radical thing...i.e. silly marketing stuff. And Zverev doesn't like a guard extending to the side because it makes it harder to smash the racquet!

    Head Gravity

    Yep, at 12 and at the ends of the (short!!) bumper strip. About 3g total to up the swingweight (and a little twist weight). I use a leather grip to counterbalance, so it ends up quite a bit heavier than stock, which some on this board will tell you is pointless (i.e. to buy a Pro). I like it...

    I know these things aren't popular, but I have kept my strings essentially notch-free (full bed of Tour Bite 17) using a bunch of Babolat string savers around the sweet spot. I hit with more spin than most guys in our club in my age group (50-ish). Maybe worth a try? YMMV.

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    Yes, I have 3g at 12, 1g each at 3 and 9, and 2g in the lower hoop (hadn't realized I had so much lead on this guy!). Balance is 31.8 with leather and an overgrip, 340g static weight. This may not be surprising to others, but I have not previously experienced such a change in feel by changing...

    Someone may have already covered this, but I just wanted to mention that the feel in my weighted-up Clash 100 is *much* better since putting a leather grip on it. I've accepted a bit more handle weight (even more head-light), but with the payback of finally having a bit of stringbed feel after...

    Head Gravity

    I've moved from an IG Prestige Pro to both the Gravity Pro and Tour. I find the string spacing of the 16x19 Prestige Pro to be about the same as on the 18x20 Gravity twins. While I love the feel of the Prestige, its narrow 95 sq in. oval head gives me a bit of difficulty with hitting heavy...
