How would you best add weight to the HEAD LM INSTINCT?

I like this racquet, but wish it was:
12oz instead of 11.2oz.
8pts headlight instead of 4pts


What is the best way to add weight to it?
I don't like adding lead under the grip... is there a way to
customize it under the buttcap like a Prince?

thanks...
(i know about the TOUR XL version, but i don't like the 16x19 pattern or the .5 extra length)

You could either try a leather grip (easiest way to add anywhere from 5g to 10g depending on the brand). Otherwise you can you could follow the tail-weighting articles on racquet customization on the TW website.

maybe you shoul try to removing the cap and adding some wight in the handle...they showed it on this website. i use the same racquet, but so far I am satisfied with lead under the grip...we'll see

I know how to tailweight a Prince racquet with trapdoor, (like gmlasam but not quite as meticulous ;)), but I do not know how to do it with a HEAD racquet... i suppose I just need a staple gun to get the buTTcap back on...

Just wondering if others have added weight to their INSTINCTS and if so... how?

I wonder how much weight filling the handle with silicone would add by itself....
