    The ballast initially looks like a very solid, long plastic rod which extends up to the shaft. But oh I was amazed by how short it was.. its length was only about 15mm.

    No, they find larger grips give them more power because it's the right grip size for their hand.

    If I play with the bare wooden handle, then the grip will be far too small for my hand. I'll also risk getting splinters.

    I tried adjusting the grip size to the right size for my hand by using 'the formula' to find out the matching grip size. That however didn't work that well for me.
    I now have just a single layer of overgrip ( prince microtac ) over the wooden handle ( G5 and G4 ) and a thickened buttcap.
    The thinner handle allows more 'leverage' and I can feel the difference in power ( I think my strokes are better when it's like this ?! ).
    The thickened buttcap just stops the racquet from flying out of my hand.

    By using only one overgrip over the wood you are reducing about 4gr from the handle(and from the racket). After that you have almost 4u racket with solid headheavy impact and fast swing. Am I right?

    As a matter of fact, good towel grips give a rate of compression that is quite close to ideal, being firm. However, it loses almost all compression when the towel grip gets too stiff from too much perspiration. You can of course replace with a new one.
    Towel grips are very good for the competitive player who perspires a lot. For the average Joe who plays in an air-conditioned environment, a pu grip is better as a towel grip would be a bit lacking in friction without some perspiration from your hand.
