View Full Version : Lead at 3 and 9 o'clock questions.

I have two questions about lead at 3 and 9 o'clock.
(1) What is the benefit of having lead there. I heard it might be for torsional stability but not sure.
(2) Wouldn't putting lead on the hoop make the racket more heady heavy? And if so, how can you counter that? By putting lead in the handle?

Thanks! Great link! Still have one question. How much lead would I have to put in the handle to maintain the same balance if I wanted to put 10 grams at 3 and 9? Racket balance is 6 point hl.
