The butt of the LM Fire doesn't seem like it can be removed unlike the Prince, Wilson and Babolate etc. rackets.

I would like to add some leadweights to the handle of my racket.

Anyone knows how?

I recently modded my Ti.Radical OS to have .75 extra ounces in the handle, upping the weight to about 11.5 ounces.

First, you must take off the replacement grip. Then, unless the Liquidmetal series has some serious handle changes, you'll notice the buttcap is secured to the handle by several staples. Remove these. Try your best to wiggle the buttcap off. It will come off, though it might take some time. A flat-head screwdriver can help you to loosen it up.

Then, stuff the handle up with either foam or cotton and lead up!
