    Added weight but less power?

    I already have the power back ;) See my earlier post.

    Added weight but less power?

    Yes I corrected myself in the thread. It was 8,5 with dampener. I determine the weight with a sensitive coffee/kitchen scale + it’s tungsten tape which has markers for the weight.

    Added weight but less power?

    Played today with a total of 2,5 grams at 12 (exactly one strip of tungsten I had left) and the power is back! Feels really good now. Nicely balanced. More spin then before. I played horrible tough, but that’s not the racquet ;) Thanks for the tips!

    Added weight but less power?

    Ok thanks for the advice! I will test with some extra weight at 12 first (and of course with adjustment period).

    Added weight but less power?

    Ok, and why is 9-3 not a good idea? I was thinking this could keep the swing weight down.

    Added weight but less power?

    Can you explain some more about this? :) edit: What i’m reading right now is that because the racquet is not polarized enough anymore there is less recoil weight? I was thinking of adding a total of 4 gram to 3 & 9, removing the weight at 12.

    Added weight but less power?

    I agree and it was more a question about the added overgrip then the 1 gram at 12. The reason for adding the 1 gram is for balancing out the weight of the overgrip. I think the answer is a combination of the static weight slowing down my swing and the extra dampened feel of the grip that...

    I’ve added 9,5 grams. Before this I played without the overgrip. Just curious about if this could affect power in a negative way in general :)

    Added weight but less power?

    Yes I agree that it could be the adjustment period. I was also thinking that I could move the weight to 3 & 9.

    Added weight but less power?

    None ;) I just realized I also added a dampener. So it's about 6,5 grams (Wilson pro overgrip)

    Dept feels about the same. It’s trying to look at the speed of the ball when hitting at 100%.
  12. M

    Added weight but less power?

    Yes good idea. The reason for adding weight is because I’ve added an overgrip. But maybe it’s too much.

    Added weight but less power?

    I'm (for the first time) tinkering with my racquet. Mostly for balancing and a small addition of power. So this is the case: Head Extreme Tour Strung: 318 grams Balance: 32 cm I now added an overgrip which adds about 8,5 grams and counter balanced with 1 gram at 12'. Total 327,5. I would...

    Head Graphene 360+ Extreme Tour - love it

    Yes. Still disappointed that the shop (again) wasn’t truthful with me. But these specs should be manageable. I can at least add some weight at 12. How did you customize your Tours?

    Head Graphene 360+ Extreme Tour - love it

    I just received my Extreme Tour. The shop promised me this one came exactly on spec, so I let them string it. Measuring it now at home: Strung weight: 318 gram with Poly Tour Pro Strung balance: 32cm This is under weight right? How are the specs of others?
