hey guys, this is gonna be the first time using lead tape. i like my npro open, but im looking for a little more pop and little more stability and little more swingweight. im thinking about adding weight to the head. is that a good idea? how much should i add? or should i add to 3 and 9?

also the npro open is 6 pts head-light. if i add about 3 grams to the head (12 o clock), how many pts head light (roughly) would that make it?

any tips are welcome. thanks in advance

Lead tape will help because it's way too light stock. I thought it was too stiff and not enough feel, lead won't help much with that.

tried it out. it was AWESOME! i was generating effotless power, hitting heavier groundies, and volleying great. im definitely a fan of custimization now.

nice pic Pushmaster, lol

I agree that the npro open is a very good stick, especially for dubs. I play very well with it, just wish I could get over it's stiffness and lack of feel.

I used it stock and was not impressed. I don't like the muted feeling and it doesn't hit a heavy ball but with leadtape it probably becomes a different racket but not better than my current racket.
