If I put enough lead tape on the handle of my Head intlligence X5 OS I know it will be head light, BUT will it increase the power?

It will make it easier to whip the head which can generate more pace.
But it will do little for power on blocking returns. The only extra power you are going to get is by generating more head speed. But if you swing it at the exact same speed it will not be more powerfull.

But you will probably end up swinging it faster since it will be easier to
get the head moving. It can also throw off your timing. If you are late
getting through serves or ground strokes it should help. But it can also make you meet the ball more in front of you which will cause you to hit it higher and maybe long.

A heavy head will not slow down as much on impact so more of the force is put into the ball.

If you like net it can make a heavy stick easier to move around.
