I like my racquet, but i think that it could be a little bit more stable, and the sweetspot could be a little higher (fischer pro#1), should i not add lead tape to both 3/9 and 2/10, or just add add it to 3/9 or 2/10, depending on which is more important.

AND which do you think is more important, a little big of stability or a higher sweetspot? I know i ask a lot of questiosn on this forum but it'd really help if i got some good advice :confused:

depends on how often u hit your sweetspot... if u hit it often, then u want stability.

I'd go w\ 10 & 2. It will help w\ stability and raise the sweetspot slightly.

First of all 2 and 10 will give you more power not stabilize your racquet. String the racquet with black string or take black stencil and stencil a block over the majority of the string (if you use white and/or natural string). Play with it during a match. Then go to your stringer and show him/her your wear pattern. They will be able to tell you one how to maximize your racquets sweet spot coupled with stabilizing your racquet. If you do not want to be so type A personality about this just slap on (2) 3in. pieces of lead tape at 3 and 9.

9-3 is a good option for more stable and not change much the balance
