An easy way to check how HH or HL a racquet is find your racquet's balance point. Just lay it off the edge of a table and find the point where it starts to tip. Or take a small wooden dowel or even a pencil and find the point where it balances. Make a small mark - this is your balance point. Next find the midpoint of your racquet. For a normal 27 inch racquet it would be at 13 1/2 inches. Make a mark. For every 1/8th of an inch the balance point is from the midpoint of the racquet, it equals 1 point HH (if the balance point is closer to the head) or HL (if the balance point is closer to the handle). For example - if your balance point is at 13 inches on the handle side (and on a standard 27 inch racquet), it would be considered 4 points head light as the balance point is 1/2 inch or (4/8 inch) from the midpoint.
