Has anyone ever added lead to the inside of a Volkl handle? Mine (Tour 10 Gen II MP) has the "sensor handle" on it, and was wondering, if I wanted to add some weight to the area 4 inches from the butt, how would I go about doing so? Thanks!

Have you tried looking at TW's guide? I'm pretty curious as well since I have a pair of those.

The inside the hairpin (handle) on Volkl Tour 10 Gen II it is hollow. That is only a piece of cardboard in the clear butt cap.

Make sure you stuff with cotton to maintain/secure your lead placement point.

Ahh..I was wondering how to keep the lead exactly where I want it. Do I need to stuff enough cotton into the handle so that when I put the lead weights in, say 3.5/4.0 inches from the butt end, it'll stay there? Is that how most people on here do it? Thanks for the responses so far!

Is this the case on all Volkl's? Like the C10 Pro, for instance? That little piece of cardboard scares me from messing with it...
