I personally think the Epon 302's are just to Soft a feeling if I'm honest!!
I prefer the slightly more Dense/Firm feeling of Honma or GW heads

I can sympathize with you. I had the P2 and sold them because they didn't heave enough feedback--buttery soft is one thing, soggy marshmallow soft is another.  Then I wondered if I didn't give them enough time so I just bought them back.

I had the P2's and loved them....

I tend to go through phases where I'm striking the golfball well for a couple months and I want more granular feedbadback.  The 302 can make you feel like slightly off center strikes are pure because it's so soft.  The only way I know I got it pure is when I get absolute nothingness...Then my normal swing comes back, I'm all over the face and I hate whatever I got...

Ok...
So I'm back to tinkering..

I've built a set of irons and the total weight of the complete club is 9gram lighter, now the Grips are the main reason for this.
If I wanted to alter the SW I'd need a lower Scale,( from say D7 to D3) I'd need to "add" weight at the Grip end?

I'm guessing heavier Grips could solve it but what's the other option to pick 10gram up?

A tip weight in the shaft will get you close. And before anyone suggests it, Dale won't like lead tape on the back of his irons.....

I've edited the post as I'm not sure I made my intention clear...
I'm wanting a Lower Overall SW, so I'm I right in thinking it's the Grip or Butt section that needs to be made heavier?

Reducing grip weight by nine grams increases SW by 1.8 points.  So to reduce SW you can shorten the shaft, get a lighter shaft, reduce the clubhead weight, or add back nine grams to the grip.  Have you hit a ball yet with these clubs?  You may not feel a difference.  Increasing SW by reducing grip weight will not impact the feel of swinging the club to the same extant as increasing SW by increasing shaft length, shaft weight, or clubhead weight.

How familiar are you with the concept of club MOI?
