What is the deal with tennis racket balance?

Head Length

Take a tennis racquet and find the length half way. A tennis racquet is typically 27 inches long so this is 13 1/2 inches. If the racquet balances halfway, then it is even balance. If it tilts to the racquet head, it is head heavy. If it tilts toward the handle, it is head light. The balance of a racquet can make two racquets of equal weight feel different.
