From your question, I assume you want to put lead on your Prestige Classic and try to match whatever number his racquet is supposed to weight but like I said in a previous post it doesn't work this way. I actually have two of his racquets and the lead amount is different from one to the other since they have different specs to begin with...

You basically need 3 numbers - swingweight, balance and weight. Places who customize racquets for the pros use proprietary software that will tell you exactly how to distribute the lead. Sometimes, you just need a few layers at the usual places (bumper, 3 and 9 and top of the handle) sometimes you will inject silicone in the handle etc.

Do you know the name of the software, and where it is available? I'm a stringer and I'm thinking about learning to customize.
