View Full Version : Lead Placement Help Needed ???????????

12-04-2006, 04:12 PM
I currently play the Wilson ncode nps 95.(strung with NXT MAX 16 @ 58lbs.) It is a great racquet, but I would like to get a little more power from the baseline. Also, it is not very stable at the net. I was thinking of adding .2 oz. of lead at the throat. But would definitely like some suggestions as I have never added lead to a racquet before. Thanks

Stock Racquet Specs Are:

10.8 oz.-strung
Balance-1 pt HL

4 grams total at 3&9 and 10 grams under your grip.

i've been wondering how you add the weight under the grip
do you do it under the original grip, under the over grip, or inside the grip using the little opening at the butt of the racket?

Would any lead at the 6 position help??? How do I add weight at the grip ??

Totally agree. You just unwrap the grip, and add it just near the butt. Then re-wrap grip.
