I am wanting to buy a new racket, but I don't know what any advantage to having a "head heavy" racket is? :confused:

advantage: more power, much easier to swing (i'm assuming that it is light)
disadvantage: less control, not very good at net, could cause tennis elbow (not so sure about that one)

just a couple of reasons

its less manuverable which makes it bad at net but u get more power so it will be better for you when you are a baseliner.

alot more power and pop on serve, but u sacrifice control esp at the net and drop shots and finesse shots are more difficult as well

I had tennis elbow problems with a head heavy racquet.
Of course, part of that was due to poor technique, but it
was easier to clean up my technique with a head light
