    All you need to do is take a dowel or broom handle and place it on a flat surface. Then balance the racquet on it. Mark the spot where it balances. Now measure the distance between that point and the mid-point of the length of the frame. On a 27" racquet that is 13.5". Let's say the racquet balances at a point that is 14" from the butt end of the racquet. That means the balance point is 1/2" toward the head from the mid-point. This makes it 4 pts. head heavy. If the balance point was 1/2" on the handle side that would make it 4pts. head light. Each 1/8" is 1 pt.
