      Infinity Carbon? He is asking about Infinity VPS.

      I am sure the goon squad can help you take the photo.

      Ja, Intensity... right, Intensity. Been a year since I moved on to Batos, Akkad and Nates' blades that I so completely forgot what is what and how to spell.

      Show some photos of how some different Infinities balance. And then people can judge for themselves.

      Yeah. Thanks Phorkyas. So, that shows the balance point is not too far from the center of the head. That is head heavy. Not too different than where the balance point on my V+ is.

      I am good with a blade with that balance. But, if it was center balanced the index finger would be about half way between where that index finger is and the edge of the rubber. And if it was handle heavy, the index finger would be just about at the edge of the rubber.

      I've read here several times about that handle filling procedure. But honestly till know I haven't given the balance of the blade much thought. Just fell in love with it the first time I played it: that crisp, direct feeling in blocks and all in all not too fast for a mediocre amateur like me. - tried a Ligna off against it, which I somehow disliked, so mushy feeling. Maybe next time I try more stuff, but I try not to EJ and instead stick to a simple setup. Get the most out of it (once I get rid of my crutches that is)

      The blade I showed is my favorite blade I have ever used and there is no question it is a little head heavy. I never notice it. Nor do I care about it. For most people, when you get used to a racket setup, you learn how to use that racket and that is really all you need. If you have something you like and are comfortable with, then there is no reason to EJ.

      Some people are more sensitive to stuff like that. I know there is a value to center balanced or handle heavy. But it just isn't something that makes a big difference to me.

      And when you have a blade that works for you, that you feel confident with, and you like how it feels, stop searching and use it. Real gains in TT skillz happen by training, playing matches and working on improving different aspects of your game.
