i put weight on the handle to try to get it more headlight. i think you need to know the spec you are trying to achieve and go from there. if you are just experimenting i find using wide adesive tape and putting the lead on that and then taping that to the frame allows me to reuse the lead when i come to a final decision.

I did it same way.

I prefer many layer of lead than single long strip. When i want to put 6 g, I cut it in 2" long(1/4 width) for 12 pieces and pick them to court and go on experimenting there. Try first layer, if it's not enough, apply more. I feel multilayer was better hence they were "concentrated" leading up, not to distribute the weight. If you distribute the weight, you won't feel any change.

You guys are so cheap :lol: We're talking about a few pennies' worth of material here.

I lead about 3" of lead at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock and it's stabilized my shots, put some plow into the ball and made the racquet more evenly balanced. My KBT plays so much better now.
