If you're contact is late and ur having to rush that racquethead thru the ball...then I can understand ur complaint!
Just saying "it's light"..is a gross over-simplification. There are MANY "balance variables" now. Most racquets are tagged "Head Heavy or Head light" nowadays. Did your come tagged that way? I haven't been to W-Site to re-vestigate. Dan
Hyper Hammers are designed to be head heavy. Like a hammer.
It's a little strange because you shouldn't be having those problems. What racquet were you using before? The racquet itself is pretty light (by comparison) so if you were using a roughly 10oz racquet so far, this should feel ligther. On the strokes, I will hazard a guess that it feels heavy on the preparation, when you actually have to bring your racquet up and behind you, this is somewhat normal because you are bringing a head heavy object up from a distance from your hands. Think about lifting 20lb weights in your hands or 20 lbs weights attached to a long rod and you lifting it from the tail end (like a hammer). The hammer type will be 'heavier'.
But that should aid you in your swing and follow through. The swingweight should be pretty high aided by the hyper hammer design. Which is why I find it confusing and contradictory that you have to put a lot of energy into getting decent head speed. It's a light racquet, is head heavy - I feel you should be getting decent racquet head speed pretty easily.
I think you may just need to get used to the racquet and also just get back in form from winter. Easiest thing to do is before you play or just in general, swing a heavy racquet around so the lighter racquet is all the more useful.
