    And your rice grain analogy: you have to keep in mind that the extra 1-2g in the palm may not be much but at the end of a 2.5ft lever like a racket that is then swung will be very noticeable. Also don't forget a shuttle only weighs a mere 5g: for sure you can tell the difference there.

    Am I the lucky one that has two SW35's that are the exact same everything ? unfortunately my Mx80 is a bit heavier than my SW35's but has slightly less BP, so therefore is similar....

    Just had a quick read through these posts.

    Visor is correct, adding 2g of lead tapeor any other typeof weight to the top of the racquet head is easily noticable.

    Quite often, when I've neglected my frayed strings by not restringing them and three racquets have ended up with snapped strings, I borrow a friends headlight racquet (since everything feels headlight after you've played with an Armortec 700 for 7years+)...and I add between 2g and 4g of lead weight to the top, and sometimes more to make things feel closer to home.

    Anyroad, the net result is a shift in balance due to the weight at the top of the head and you will require greater force to move it. The resultant effect is that the force you apply through the moment arm (distance between your hand and shuttle contact point) with the greater mass at the head will give you more power too.
