    Has anyone customised their RDS 002 Tour eg lead tape at the 3&9 of the head? Why did you do it and how did it play?

    It's not heavy enough? (about 350 g!)

    I removed the grip and have lead at the butt and top of handle with 2 overgrips only. Nothing on the hoop. It is now 364g and 12pts HL...

    I've now demoed the 002 Tour and like it much better than the non-Tour 002 which seemed quite light. I like the weight but would prefer a slightly more head-heavy balance. Just wondering whether the racquet would become too unwieldly. I'll try it and see.

    002 tour

    on the one i played with my friend added 2 layers of 5 in lead tape on the 3 and 9 oclock side.
    to me i think the weight wouldve been better without
    but wen hit with it it feel more pop and control.
    so id recomend it
