increase control...

what's the best way to increase control by just doing slight changes to my racket? i have to go to some place very soon and i can't restring because my stringer(my friend) is not avalible. i'm thinking about taking some lead off the frame, but i'm not sure if that's the best way. thanks guys.

There is nothing you can possibly do to the frame, unless you want to reinforce it with some steel braces or something like that.

String savers can tighten up the string bed a tad bit, so can certain dampeners. The increase in tension is slight and probably only noticable if you can convince yourself mentally that a difference actually exists.

I really don't understand these posts.

Save yourself some money and embarassment from players using 25 year old racquets and go get a coach, you'll be thankful much sooner rather than later.

what i meant by " very soon" is like two or three days.
i know that there's probably no way to increase control in that short period of time. i just wonder if there's actually ways to to this. thanks anyways.

Yeah there is a way to it in a matter of days, its called put the racquet down, quit hitting the ball into and over the fence and step away from the game until you get a coach so you don't develop bad habits, technique and strokes. Then you can worry about tension / racquet weight etc when you are playing in a tournament.
