Instead of fiddling around with leadtape here, leadtape there.
Are there specific "rules" concerning racquet balance for baseline players with a double handed backhand?

My Head Prestige racquets wheigh about 355 grams, but I can't really tell you what their balance is, because I just put some leadtape on there and whenever it feels right or when get used to it, I stick to that.

But usually after a month or so, when everything doesn't go the way I like, I adjust the amount of leadtape again.

I'm just never sure, what's the best setup for me.
It's kind of annoying!

Depends on if you want to focus your game around that shot...

For the greatest part yeah, 70% baseline 25% serve and 5% volley!
I can't volley, so I'll just stay away from the net.

You should, probably, be close to (or at) even balance, if you ask me.
