I never thought about this until my son started taking lesson with a new instructor and he recommended adding some lead tape to the bottom of the head to add some swing weight to the club. He mentioned what you stated above about how cutting down the club drastically cut down the swing weight.

I tried to become a amateur club fitter for my son a couple of years ago. I got a bunch of junior shafts and second hand heads from eBay. Not to forget all the tools!
We were bending, changing the weight and doing everything possible to fit him to a good set..
Fortunately I have day job cause club fitting was not my thing! I still change grips but that is it.
I realized quite early with my guy that he cares a lot about feel and I could never recreate that with my amateur skills.

A good one to ask this question to would be Mike Flynn of Flynn Golf. He is custom club fitter that specializes in junior clubs. You can go to his website and shoot him an email and he usually responds right away. He would be as close to an expert in junior golf clubs as anyone.

Interesting you bring up grip. The regular grip is typically 50-52 grams. I use 46 gram undersize grip for my junior. However, when I measure SW, I always put some lead tape on the grip to bring the weight up to 50 grams. According to Tom Wishon, you really need grip weight of 50-52 gram to have any accuracy in SW measurement. Plus, changing grip weight will have a "false" impact on SW, but have little impact on MOI. There has been a lot of discussion on Fitting Technical board in this forum. Therefore, I will be very cautious in using grip weight to change SW.
