Grip Size and Balance Point
Just wondering if there is any correlation to grip size and balance point of a racket.
Let's take Yonex VT80 3UG4 and 3UG5. Let's say they both have the same weight of 86 grams. Which would have the higher Balance Point and what would that mean?
I ask cuz VT80 only comes in G3 and G4 in Canada. If I wanted G5 then I'd have to buy online. I'm comfortable with using both G4 and G5. But I suspect I may be able to make more deceptive shots with G5 though.

You're correct on that last point: a small grip allows for better control of racket face. ..... However grip size doesn't affect bp. As bp is the point of balance between handle and head, so size does not matter, only mass. ..... BTW, you should know that the bigger handles have a bigger hole drilled into the bottom as compared to smaller handles, in order to maintain the same mass so that bp is unchanged.

Sorry, didn't mean anything by it. Should have worded it better but was in a rush... still working, you know.
