    Default Weight change

    Im not sure if Im posting in the right thread but:

    How can I get used to a heavier racket? Im trying to switch from the photon (75g) racket to a arc 10 and I can feel quite a significant weight difference. I've played with it a couple times and I really like the feel but is kind of heavy since Im not used to. Is there a quick way to get used to it or do I have to constantly use it for a month or something?
    Thanks,
    Tim

    no easy way around it, you can try and swing a even heavier racket around before you play and then use the arc 10 lol

    take something heavy (better if training racket) and imagine it's a racket and swing for 5 mins.. then use your arc 10

    actually. the 75g of the Photon is marketing number. i have weighed an actual one and it is 80g. 75g is probably the claim without the handle.
