Is there any way to make a k95 less demanding?

Like the title says, is there any way to make the k95 less demanding? I have played with it sporadically throughout the last year and loved it but can never make the switch because of the demanding nature of the high swingweight and heavy static weight. Although I felt it gives the racket a solid feel, it seems that whenever I'm on the defense or having to hit a difficult shot the racket seems to take way too much effort to get a solid contact.

Has anyone else had this experience? Would putting lead tape in the grip help to make it more maneuverable? (btw, I'm used to heavy rackets with very head light balances, so weight is not really a factor)

you could try improving yourself so that you can handle the swingweight and static weight better. proper preparation is really helpful when playing with heavier racquets and higher swingweights. that was the only way i managed to break in my k95.

There's no way to decrease the static or SW without taking something off. Adding lead tape under the grip will change the balance but will increase SW. You could try trimming the bumper guard.
