assuming 2" is 1g for .5" lead tape, 10" is 5g...

but u need to know the current BP position and where u are going to put the lead on. Cal the new BP using data like lead tape weight, distance between the lead tape and BP, current weight of racket etc...

Seems like RSA has a program for cal the new Balance, which is actually much easier to cal than SW.

Adding ~6g to the bottom of the handle (read as "a quarter on the bottom of the handle") is half a point.

But it all depends on where you place your lead/weight.

One point equals a variation of 0.125 inches in the balance point.

An even balanced racquet has its balance point at 13.5 inches from the buttcap (for a 27-inch long racquet).

So an 8-pt headlight racquet would have its balance point at 12.5 inches from the buttcap (13.5 - 8 * 0.125 = 12.5).

The amount of lead you need to put to change the balance in a certain way depends on where you put it.
