Can someone explain to me what affect adding weight to the butt end of the club has on a shaft or swing?

The reason I ask is that I picked up a medicus power meter to tinker with. I notice that The club feels better to me and I hit better shots with the extra weight on the hands end of the club.

One reason is to reduce swingweight. Other reason is some people think it's easier to get the club in the slot when there is more weight in the butt end.

It seems that I may be one of those people and never knew it until I put the medicus on the club. I will try some led tape adn see what the results are.

I've done the same on two of my drivers to get them similar to another I have. 4 grams below the grip does the trick for me. It makes me feel like the head is lighter and feels like I can swing it faster with a higher overall static weight.
