Even balance means that the racquet is evenly balanced from head to handle, if the racquet has more weight towards the handle it is head light, and more weight towards the head it’s head-heavy. That’s how simple it is.
The balance describes where the weight is distributed on the racquet. A racquet with a heavier head is appropriately called a head heavy racquet, sometimes referred to as HH. A racquet where the weight is in the grip is called a head light racquet, sometimes referred to as an HL.
A balanced, or equal balance racquet, is one where the weight of the tennis racquet is distributed equally throughout the frame. It would balance at 13.5″ assuming it was a standard 27″ racquet and be 0 points head light.
Therefore, you will need a tennis racquet which will allow you to have full control over the tennis ball. In terms of balance, this means choosing a tennis racquet which is head-light. A head-light racquet will see much of the weight of the racquet in the handle.
Balance. The balance point of a racquet is that point along the length of the racquet where a racquet will teeter and totter on a thin support (like a 1/2" dowel or the edge of a ruler) without one end or the other being pulled to the ground. If the racquet balances halfway up the racquet from the butt, it is said to have even balance.
