Here's my dilema, I have been using the LM Radical MP for over a year now and for the most part I have really enjoyed it. A couple of days ago I picked up a 6.1 Classic and decided to hit with it just for kicks. What I found was that I enjoyed the fact that the 6.1 felt more solid and stable, which is obviously attributed to it's weight. Off the ground and even with the serve I feel more in control with the 6.1 than with the LM Radical. However, at the net it's a different ballgame. I'm simply sluggish and my volleys are terrible. So what I'm thinking is a middle ground between the LM and the 6.1 in terms of the weight. The LM weighs in at 11.2 strung while the 6.1 weighs in at a hefty 12.6, which is obviously a big difference. I like the head light feel of the 6.1 so I'd definitely like to have that in the LM. Does anyone know how I could SPECIFICALLY go about weighting the LM where it has a feel similar to the 6.1 without quite as much weight? In other words how much lead tape and where, SPECIFICALLY.
