    I am happy with my BLX Pro Open frame but I would like to add some lead tape at 3 & 9 (2g) and into the handle to counterbalance. For that, I would like to add some lead tape (2g) directly into the buttcap by the trap door. This is a possibility with the Wilson buttcap !. Therefore, lead tape will really be set at the end of the handle... It is a good way for the look and could be very convenient but is it correct to counterbalance efficiently ?
    I am afraid that it could induce some instability...

    I've had no problems putting weight in the buttcaps of my Six.One's. I use tungsten putty, but I've used lead tape for other racquets.

    You can also dig out some of the foam that's inside the racquet handle and place weight there.
