What do yall think about using lead tape on a racquet? I was thinking about putting some one the handle of my racquet to make it a bit more head light. I would think though, that it would be uncomfortable cause it would change the grip shape. Do any of you use it? What do yall think?

atpt, I try to put the lead inside the handle under the butt cap. But, if you don't add too much, it won't significantly increase the grip size unless you add a lot of tape. It's pretty thin stuff. Adding weight along the handle will reduce shock, especially on hard hit balls. It should improve the frames stability on volleys too. It won't have any effect on power though unless you add a corresponding amount to the head.
