dunlop 200g vs 300g

i am seeking opinions on the 200g from dunlop, which i've never hit.
i've been trying to find modern players racket to replace my ps 6.0 85's. i bought a used 300g and have been playing it all winter in various configurations. i had never hit with a light racket before (the stock frame is 10.9 oz. strung), and i could only play it against pushers and weak hitters. the frame had zero stability on heavy balls until i added gradually about 1.5 ounces of lead at 3 & 9 and below the grip.
this 12.5 oz 300g is now something special. for those who like the 200g, i'd be interested to hear your views

Thanks!

Don't have G's, but Mfil and Aero 200's and a Bio300T.
Added 20" of 1/4 lead at 10-2 and 11-1 on the B3T, which now hits pretty well, SW lighter than the 200's 340 to 350, probably close to 325 or so.
No lead, no power and exxagerated tiny sweetspot.

The Bio 300 Tour (18x20) is a different mold and different string pattern to the HotMelt 300G (16x19).

I have owned and played with the HM 300G and the Revelation 200G ~5 years ago and despite weighing up the HM 300G I could not get it to play as well as the Rev 200g. It felt more unstable especially against heavy hitters and lacked the control and precision the Rev 200g had. I have played with the HM 200g once and from what I remember it too did not play as well as the Rev 200g being more muted and less crisp and agile despite similar static weights.

Between the HM 300g and the HM 200g I think I would have picked the 200g at the time.

Geez, dudes...
Could it be related to 300's lighter SW and W, exactly the same as in every generation since?
300's light with light SW.
200's heavier with more mass SW.
Geez.
