    ^
    Ti-10 is stiff and little bit head heavy for me, Nanospeed is headlight but not durable
    You can try Saber 7 from YY not headlight but more like even balance, medium shaft....or try Victor Brave Sword 09....

    APACS Powertech 1000...
    That's the lightest I can get ... it can withstand 30 lbs..
    You could get Yonex 800 DEF or Ti 10.. but they are expensive..

    Why not the MTec85? Isn't that meant to be head-light already?

    Personally, I don't see the point in adding weight to make a racket less head-heavy. It's not going to make it any more maneuverable or powerful, as the swing-weight is still exactly the same (when you swing, you rotate the racket about the handle, not the balance point or some other point halfway down the shaft).

    Also, there's the Fireblade Iso S-Lite, if it's available in Singapore.

    All Karakal rackets have the same BP (although I believe that in certain special circumstances, there are 3 MTec 80 BPs), it is 290-300mm - just slightly head heavy.

    I agree that the swingweight will be the same whatever you do to a racket in the sense of adding weight to the handle but adding weight to the handle will without a doubt make the racket feel more headlight. It should also make it feel more stable (or at least tennis players say that).

    try the new NSX00's. they are cheap, and i think the 100, 500 and 800 play decently, better than the price reveals.

    As has been mentioned, it seems to me like the NS7700 fits your description in every way. It's head light, one of the more flexible high-end racquets, 3U, pretty durable in my experience and even has a vibration filter cap that's supposed to deal with your vibration issue.
