Can you name a few hevyish racquets that feel lightish? I love the feel of heavy racquets but my shoulder feels the blow from the weight.

Thanks,

First off what racquets have you tried? Next what brands do you have access to? Lastly, what's the balance n stiffness of your current frame and what if any problems do you have with it?

dunlop mfil 200 18x20, but that si just my opinion and everyone who responds will be their own opinion, the only way for u to understand tell is to try out racquets urself
 
The Pro Supex Dynamic Energy. It's 12 oz with an overgrip, yet its so headlight it doesn't feel it. I've had many guys hold it and another racket and guess it was lighter, only to find out it was a half oz heavier.

In my experience, the extremely head light rackets (but also very heavy) sometimes feel lighter than rackets that are a lot lighter but are more head heavy.

Also rackets with low swingweight can feel lighter. My prestige pros don't feel that heavy even though they are about 12.5 oz strung.

IMO Mspeed Pro No.1 SL,you can add lead tape to it and still you can whip it like an 11oz racquet.

Mine weigh in at 12.2 ounces with leather replacement grips and an overgrip. Otherwise they are stock.

Swing very light and flex is 57 .

They are just made for someone with sore shoulders !

MG Prestige Mid

strung low with thin gauge. Best of the best, for me. Easy to swing and perfectly balanced.
 
A lot of them ^ and all the ones listed above me, anything with a heavy static weight and very HL balance is what you described.

Avery M3 Control, Gamma G325, Babolat Pure Storm Ltd. Anything with a high weight and low swingweight. Head Prestige Pro is right up there too.
