    I have a PSC 6.1 (black buttcapp). I built up the grip one size using a shrink sleve and added a leather grip and one overgrip on it. Now by my calculations, it's approximately 16 points head light.

    Is there any disadvantage to this? Are there signs in one's game if the racquet is too headlight? Or is this alright to play with?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the heavyness of the balls your hitting. Going more HL could (depending on other factors) give you more spin, but at the cost of penetration. If you can't notice a difference, ask your hitting partners if your shots have less weight on them. If not, why change it? And, even if yes, if you prefer it this way, for whatever reason (maybe your balls were sailing long and not anymore), go on with it.
