Ok I recently purchased a Ti.Radical and I'm really enjoying it. It is really solid on groundstrokes and I am able to serve with a little more speed and consistency. I have a few problems with it though and I'd thought I'd ask some questions. This racquet is extremely nice to hit with....and very forgiving on off-center shots. However, when I try to put a little more speed on the balls, I find myself losing control.
1. Which string would you recommend for me in order to increase the control of my racquet and maybe lower the power a little?
2. I've heard about adding lead tape to it...but where do I add it? How exactly do I add lead tape to the handle?

First of all since you just purchased it, dont worry about customization yet. I'd practice with it more before then higher string tension, then lead tape if u feel that u really need it. Btw wut is your tension at rite now?

no idea....it came with head synthetic gut 16....feels a bit lose i guess...strings move around quite a bit

i played with this racquet for almost 3 hours today so i have a pretty good understanding of it......i still found a bit too light.....i was able to hit deep shots easily but i had to be careful and put good spin on it...and although i know my ability to control the ball is 90% based on my strokes and skills through practice....i still feel that a good control string would help me.....as well as some lead tape
