    Hey guys...
    I am using Black Knight M4 something I cant remember the whole name
    but it weights about 83 grams and spend a lot of money on that.
    But I think that because its too light its not generation so much power
    which i really need..
    so any experts what should I do??

    buy a heavier racquet?

    BK racquets are known for being light and produce good power imho. YMMV.

    Try Lead tape, It works!!

    I have placed a long Lead Tape on my 3U MMOA racket.

    IMO that can sometimes make the racket look ugly..:p

    anyways yes, get a heavier racket. if you are looking for power in a light racket, maybe considering getting a racket that's light from handle to shaft and heavy at the head.

    Yes, very ugly and it is very difficult to cut the lead tape into two identical halves.
