I bout some lead tape and it can be cut in 3 gram strips.

The question is, if I want to add only 6 grams at 10 and 2, should I add one strip at 10 on one side and another strip at 2 on the other side or should I just cut the 3 gram strips in half and apply four?

try it out and see which way is better for you. lead tape is removable so its not a big deal.

lol cut the strips in 1/4 and apply 4 . you want the racket to be evenly distributed . if u do 2 strips it wuold probably be uneven. XD

I'm no physicist, but if I add one strip at 10 on one side of the hoop and another strip at 2 on the other side, it would still be balanced.

Hi fellow Aeropro user ;) if you distribute the tape as you stated in your last post you will cause racket to twist in your hand.

See twistweight under:http://twu.tennis-warehouse.com/learning_center/specsandspeed.html

On off center shots that is, if you nail the dead center of the sweetspot you should be fine.

So then I should just cut them in half and apply four lead tapes.

Apply four: more even balance.
