How much should i put on a rdx 500 to give it "pop" on a groundstroke?

if it's not advisable, what else should i do with lead?

I am not totally sure, but I think at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. I think that will keep it more even when you hit the ball, thus creating a cleaner shot. Sorry if I am wrong.

You can check the "customizing racquets" on TW.

Putting lead tape onto the 2 and 10 o' clock spots help raise the sweetspot for those off center hits. Alot of people who mishit, usually mishit onto the top part of the stringbed, so increasing the sweetspot to that area, will help. It's just that it raises weight a bit.

I've done it to my 300G, but my arm has started hurting.

how many grams should i use? i don't mishit very often, but i need "pop"

If you want more pop but you don't hit mishits, why not just string it to lower tension.
