This is highway robbery. How can there be so much discrepancy? And why should we let the manufactures get away with...

    Adding weight in the butt cap

    I recently added some weight in the butt caps of two of my rackets using TW shown fishing weight and cotton balls method. While playing a league match, it was a complete disaster.
