So I've got a TC-95 that's always been kind of sluggish for me, and it would be good to see if I can take out some weight.

How do I do this?

What unstring spec do you have?
the hairpin should be the same, expect the different weights and at different locations within the handle to achieve the advertised “custom” spec.

you can remove the pallet, then the sticky layer - you will be able to see the weight pieces on the hairpin.

The pallet is held on by this weird goopy tape, it's stringy. Just be patient working it off after you take out the staples. After I got the pallets off the first time I just stripped the remaining tape and residue off the pallets and hairpin. You can dry assemble and experiment with different weights and placement locations without stapling first to check the overall weight and balance point. Just put the weights where you want, put the pallets back on, butt cap back on and wrap the grip back up and check to see if you like it. Once you find a combo you like then staple it all back up to reassemble.

You're not going to be able to lose any weight from the head side, all the adjustments are done in the handle. You can adjust balance point a bit by moving the weights towards the slots in the butt cap but you'll never be able to reduce weight on the head side of the balance point.

You CAN get rid of weight in the hoop by trimming the sidebumpers. They have no real function anyway....
You would loose 4-5 g and lots of SW...

IIRC It lost about 4 grams if you trim the headguard bumper halfway at 12 and 7 grams if trimming the entire bumper guard.
You will also lose a couple milligrams everytime you go to dig a short ball and scrape the racket. Especially at 10-11 o clock. 8-B

Maybe that's not so bad. The overall weight is about what I'm now swinging.
