    well, the entire thread started with "my headheavy racket is becoming less headheavy"
    Not raising any dead just leaving some wiggleroom

    No off course, if you're talking about weights like 15grams or more, I wouldn't be surprised you felt the effect, with your 120g racket..
    ...But that would not make your racket feel any lighter...

    The answer lies in experimentation. If you can afford the extra combined weight, then lead tape seems to be a reasonable alternative.

    But, the problem most people have with little diy-experiments is the 'confirmation bias'.

    I add 10g to my at700 with the yellow grip, and keep my blue-gripped at700 the same.
    Low and behold... the yellow-gripped at700 feels headlight... not so shocking, right?

    OK, just for argument's sake, it would be interesting to measure (and play with) a racquet that has a factory G2 or G3 grip and compare the balance and weight to a raquet that has a grip built up with multiple overgrips. Also, why does Yonex for example, have an almost 5 gram weight differential between the various weights they list for a racquet? A 3U is always listed as 85-89.9 grams and a 4U at 80-84.9 grams, why the almost 5 gram difference, could it be the grip or what?

    Yes it would be interesting, but I don't know anybody mad enough to try...

    G2-G4 is the gripsize difference, and 2/3/4-U thw eight-diff.. the two are unrelated.
    there're 4U g5, 4ug4, 4ug3. just like they have 3ug5, 3ug4 and 3ug3...
    there's no correlation, except the preference of the distributor.
