It is to make it more headlight. I don't have an issue with the weight, but with how clunky and head heavy (relatively) it felt.
I tried it with 1.5 grams in the butt, a world of difference - love it like this. I'll try going for a bit more.
Got it. 10 cm is a fair generalization for most.
So if I want to make my racquet feel more 'whippy', the butt would a good place to add some weight, right? Assumption being I'm counter-weighting on the opposite side of the axis.
Thank you for the detailed post.
One question - why is the axis of rotation considered 10 cm from the butt? Shouldn't it be at the butt itself (or where one holds the racquet)?
That's where the angular movement of the racquet is centered at, right?
I have a pair of Textreme Tour 100 310s, I have grown to really like the racquets. Nice plow, fairly large sweetspot, good control.
I would however like to make my racquets feel more whippy. Will a more HL balance work for that? What is the ideal position to add weight for the whippy feel...
Update : I have clocked a few more hours with the TT310s.
Early impressions -
1. Its getting even easier to play aggressively. TT310 has brilliant ball placement, and as before, I'm aiming for much smaller targets.
2. Ground strokes getting better - much more consistent depth and weight of...
Well, it's a different situation. One of my Instincts has cracked (they're both 6 years old) and I felt like trying something new. Hated the P17, this was the next on the list. It didn't help that I couldn't find a single L3 Graphene Instinct in my country.
As for what I'd want different, I had...
I got myself a pair of TT100 310 very recently, and have hit for about 3 hours with them. The TT310s are ~330 gms, 7 pts HL with overgrip and dampener. I measured SW with the TW Tool - roughly 330+ SW (I have no idea if I got it right).
A bit of background before I talk about my impressions. My...
