How much weight do you want to add? Use tape if it's a little, use fishing weights if it's a lot.

Try tape first then if that is not enough then go with some fishing weights if you need that much weight.

Lead tape is the simplest and works well for a small amount of weight. The use of fishing weights & a method to contain them so they don'T rattle around requires a little more time and care.
GOod luck.:cool:

If your goal is to make the racquet more headlight while you are holding and swinging it, then the added weight should be as far behind your hand as possible - i.e. in the butt cap area.

Placing weight inside the handle - and thus, directly under your hand - will make the racquet heavier, that's all.

What about some silicone injected into the handle of the racquet? Try that too.
