    I'd like to know what are the advantages of one lead tape position over the other. Saying i'm using lead tape to improve power on serve and groundstrokes. I noticed that almost everyone puts lead tape at 3 & 9. is it because of the added stability ? and also, does lead tape at 2 & 10 make the sweetspot higher in the stringbed, which might help in improving the serve ??

    thx for your help

    I have my lead in both spots. The 3/9 improved stabilty it my sweetspot. And the 2/10 made the sweetspot a little bigger in that direction. It plays nice, and I think it improved my serve a little.
