I am adding lead tape to the handle, but i cannot put it inside the handle.
Do i put it at the top or bottom of the handle?

I have some lead on the diagonals of my prince grip and it doesn't feel that bad. Could be more effective inside the handle, but I'm noticing anything.

Lead tape at the top of the handle increases power, while lead tape at the bottom of the handle will decrease racquet power.

I put it all over the handle, so that without the leather grip, the handle looks entirely silver.

if you are looking at addin quite a bit of lead then i would suggest doing it in a spiral around the handle. that way, the weight is distributed somewhat evenly and the grip is still easy to put on
