Removing the end of the handle will reduce the swingweight by more (because swingweight is a function of total weight and the distance between the axis of rotation (the point on the handle that the racket rotates around when swinging)) and reduce the overall weight of the racket. That should help with fatigue and help when moving the racket in a non-rotational way (like bringing it up after a smash or moving it from the forehand side to the backhand side).
As for how much of a difference it makes, um, I don't know. Maybe if he posts the weight before and after the modification (before the overgrip mod) I could estimate the difference.

That said, the biggest effect is shortening the racket because of you are shortening the lever arm. If you consider the racket to be made up of thousands of tiny points, each point would effect the swingweight using the formula m*(r^2) where m is mass and r is the distance from point of rotation (i.e. your grip). By shortening the racket, the r for each of those points gets smaller and the total swingweight is significantly affected.
When you choke up on a racket you make the distance to the end of the racket shorter and you add some mass behind your grip. Because the distance to the head of the racket makes much more of a difference in the swingweight than the distance to the butt of the racket (due to the fact that r is squared in the formula), the effective swingweight is significantly lowered.
By the same token, adding weight at the point of your grip (i.e. overgrip) makes much less of a difference to the swingweight than adding weight to the head of the racket (say lead tape).

Update on my VH1700: The paint is flaking off the cone in big pieces. So far I don't see anything on the surface that would make it have any "antivibration" properies. The plastic is an ugly turquoise colour. I'm willing to forgive this because the cone's shape is perfect for when I serve and play at the net. It has nicely defined flat sides

VH1600: Collapsed on first restring at 28lbs
VH1700: Rim is cracking at shared grommet area. Played not more than a dozen games with no clashes. 28lbs tension.
AMPS90: Shaft just 3cm under the T-joint disintegrated. Played just 2 games with no clashes.
That's it. My test of APACs is over.

Which APACS rackets to buy
I am new to this forum and been browsing it because I need to buy a couple new rackets. It has been really helpful reading all your posting, but it is still hard to decide in the end. My impression is that APACS provides good value and since I am only an intermediate player, I think they will be good for me. I have a "heavy" style of playing and need to use my wrists more than I currenly do.
What I need more help with is to decide which models I should buy. I want 2 different rackets to be used for different situations (single/dubble)(type of opponent). Variation in terms of power, flexibility, etc would be nice to. Can anyone provide any suggestions?
I looked at reviews already, especially for ES10, Nano900 Power and VH1800 and they all seem to be quite allround.
I am in Singapore right now and will Visit KL next weekend. Any suggestions for where should I get them from? Any good stores in particular?
Thanks all. This forum is great.
