Do you know of any male player on the tour who doesn't put lead tape on his raquet? Are there any? Many?

Probably very few.

I don't believe any person in the top 100 is using totally bare bone stock sticks.

I'm asking because a number of players use the six one 95, in various versions. My own BLX 6.1 95 weights 360 with an overgrip, and it's solid as a rock. Of course I'm far from being a pro, or being at the receiving end of Roddick-like serves. But knowing that the Kfactor version, for example, is even heavier, I'm wondering if some players wouldn't think adding weight might just hurt the maneuverability of their racquet.

Pros usually get a Pro stock racquet which are usually lighter than stock racquets. This is for them to customize and tailor to their game. Some pro their racquet weighs less than 360grams some weigh more depends on the pro.
