I played a few years with LM Radical CAPped and liked it.... but now i got iPrestige in XL and obviously it does not have CAP, but maybe i should add it? I hear the EU versions always had CAPs, why not the US versions?
Has anyone done this? what does it do except add a little weight?

Hi, CAPs actually add a solid feel to the frame, though it might be a bit much for some. Try adding lead first to see if you can handle the extra weight. It's cheaper, and much easier to apply/remove than CAP grommets, lol.

But his Radical with CAP grommets weighs less than his iPrestige XL without CAP grommets.

you'll add a lot of swingweight to the frame since you'll be adding weight to the head.
