Just out of curiosity - do o3 ports/holes allow for lead addition??

what i meant was how do you put lead on 3/9 when there are holes and no solid background to stick the lead onto?

Not if there is a hole right where you put the lead.

If I had an O3, try placing lead in between the O-ports. On other rackets you lead with long thin strips vertically along the racket. With these, try short thin strips goring horizontal, and place them between the o-ports. If you want to really lead the racket, you may have to layer the strips.

I demoed some 03s and there seems to be a 1/4" area along the head. You can also use 1/2" lead and just loop individual "hoops" of lead through the holes.

Use 1/2" lead tape. Cut the length you want and, as usual, cut it lengthwise into two 1/4" strips. There should be enough room (barely) to place the tape along the edge of the o-ports.

Thanks for the suggestions. Prince is yet to come out with an o3 in my range but my nephew has finally settled with an o3 tour mp and wanted some info on weight addition.

Same here, I think it was you I offered it to but you had already realised it may not be the 'one' :) o3 is just not for us....

Didn't like it at all! It was a slight improvement over the o3 tour ms 95 in that it felt a little stiffer and hit a heavier ball but prince can never reproduce a pr 660 or pr ti, can they?
