If you look at these pictures its odd. Either:

1: Several of his racquets have visible lead tape at 3 & 9 and others don't.

OR

2: Lead tape is only placed on one side of the frame.

Here are some pictures:

Visible Lead at 3 & 9:

He has it on one side of the frame,
and then on the other side opposite of the first one,


if that makes sense

if you really observed lopez plays you can actually knew why such unique type of lead placement.... what every backhand slices he made... lead side was near his body... avoid twisting and stabilty during backhand slices..
