    You can just use lead tape to change the balance point. I think Lin Dan uses athletic tape for the same thing but lead tape works well.

    Mybadmintonstore.com has international shipping and I imagine they sell it because it's pretty common at most racket sports stores

    Why ?. If the stiffness, slimness, aerodynamic is right but the balance point is not your preference (too head light), lead tape can be a good solution. But I agree with you that too head heavy racket can't be modified into head light racket by applying some lead tape on the handle.

    it's an assumption that using lead tape to make a racket more head heavy. to make a racket head light, you'd have to hollow out the wooden handle then add weight to it which is time consuming as well as changing the overall weight of the racket which isn't necessary a good thing. so i'm assuming that the person want to change the balance point in the hopes of making it more head heavy.
