MX80 is my go-to racket now. I love it!

what colour elite are you using? white?
that would be the lightest, so it'll give you head heaviest

For example, my apacs Lethal 70 has a balance point of more than 310mm with strings and with original grip. When I remove the original grip and add a significantly thicker grip, the balance point obviously changes, but when I swing the racket, it still feels just as head heavy.
Anyway, just a word of caution in case someone dwells on balance point changes from grip changes.

In a way, the hand is the fulcrum but in a way, it's not.
Because the whole hand is not static during the stroke, it is thrown forward and a few grams does make a difference.
It can make the difference between a 3U racket vs a 4U racket.
But is also depends on your sensitivity to minute changes in weight and bp...
I can sense a 5mm bp shift, and Naim can sense a 2g difference in weight with his bare hands!

I've also measured the exact weights of factory, over and replacement grips, and generally the difference is only 2g, give or take. Factor in your statement above and it's so insignificant it's not even worth mentioning.
This is why you cannot just state BP and weight and expect to know how a racket is going to play out on the court!
You can have two rackets with the exact same BP and weight, and one will carry it's weight evenly, and the other carry it's weight in the head, and they'll feel and play completely differently.
In the same way head heavier rackets flex the shaft more than less head heavy ones, so if you have two rackets that are the same stiffness but one is head heavier, the head heavier one will feel more flexible.
This is why we have these discussions, because numbers don't tell you the whole story!

That said, just because I could tell the difference as to which grip was heavier, doesn't mean I'd notice a difference in real world use.

Just noticed that I cant get 4U in malaysia. Would the 3U one suffice instead ? LOL !

I just called AJ Racket (Puchong, Malaysia) and they said that the MX-80 is sold out.. and they actually sold it at RM800!!! WTH, these guys are over-pricing this racket! My goodness, if I'm not mistaken an MX-80 should cost <RM500.. Just a heads up from a observant badminton shopper..

and lately beside MX80 I also use SW37
