It's tape... made of lead... That poisonous chemical used in house paint back in the 60's? xD

Anyways, it's just sticky stuff that actually weighs A LOT for a really small piece. In other words, it has a very high weight per square inch, which makes it perfect for us tennis players. Its made for customization of tennis racquets, mainly to add more weight to the racquet. The method of customization with lead tape is almost endless, and it takes some experimenting to hit that holy grail.

Look at 10 and 2 o'clock on the inner hoop of these frames... those silver strips are lead tape :)
