What are the effects of placing lead tape in the throat of the racket (particularly on 2 sides of the V section)?
Also, what difference does it make placing the lead on the outside vs. the inside?

I added weight to the throat. It started out as a mistake, i put it there because i was going to use it later, and somehow forgot it was there. Somewhere along the way I realized it was still there and took it off, but i did not like it when i did that, so i put it back on. It felt more solid and overall just better.

Go ahead and try it, you might like it.

try it once on my dnx-8...
thought that it will make the frame more head light, more stable and less vibration, however it turns out to be more SW and akward feel...... i hated it
