    I used to do this experiment.I applied some layers of cottons,then a layer of electric tape.I thought it should be weightless..but in fact,it weights almost the same as an original grip..=(

    the gamma grip looks good. would buy one and try soon. Is the grip heavy? does it effect the balance point?

    Yes, just a bit. You need to remove the original grip.

    This looks like it can do the job but it looks a bit heavy. How do you find it? How does it compare with the original grip?

    It's very good unless it's too big for your palm.

    You can add some lead tapes on your racket's frame.

    This is less desirable because the racquet now becomes very heavy. A better way is to remove the plastic ballast inside the back of the butt cap to offset the extra weight of the new grip. For this you will have to remove the butt cap and 5 staplse from the wood handle/butt cap.

    Oh. so the weight is in the wood? its not easy to remove the staples. . Is it hard to stick the butt cap back? really like thick grips but it always lower the balance point.

    and my family has problems with me putting lead tape. they think its toxic. =/

    It's quite easy. Just use a sharp, strong needle and pull them out. Then the buttcap comes off quite easily. The plastic piece that is inside the handle is actually very light.. I don't know whether it will affect the balance point much. I have noticed that for head-lighter yonex racquets, the plastic part is bigger! and there's less empty space in the handle for the plastic insert.. While for more head-heavier racquets, there is more empty space for the small plastic insert.. Well, not exactly head-heavy, but slightly. ( NS9KS vs NS7700, both 3UG4. )

    Well yup. It's not loose nor tight. It just fits. Wrap a grip over it and it'll stay there.. Haha I found a broken NS7700, took the buttcap off and put it onto my back-up racquet.. now I have a racquet which says 'made in taiwan' on the shaft, and 'yonex japan' on the buttcap ..
    But this foam stuff can be slippery and might not hold the buttcap in place. Maybe you should use some superglue or something in this case..

    What?! So the plastic bit actually changesd the balance point by 1.5cm ?!
    Wow.. A balance point of 365mm.. that's insanely head-heavy.
    I might as well try that on my AT700 if I'm courageous enough.. Don't want to ruin the handle.. 315mm -> 330mm ...
