    if you use or have used a pd+, can you please tell me any modifications you might have added to the racket and its effect? such as lead in the hoop and lead in the handle. how much of both? thanks.

    I used 2oz of lead. 1 oz in the handle and .5 oz on each side starting at the midpoint of the hoop and moving up in strips about 5 inches long.

    I had arm trouble with the PD, I customized it and now feels very nice and most important, painless.
    15 grams in the handle
    and the Babolat RVS
    Strings M Monogut 17, X Prince Syn Gut 18 @ 70
    I call it Pure Spin

    tennis tech did you put any weight in the hoop? so it plays nicely when u make it even more headlight? thats very interesting.

    String tension 63#s with 18g NRG2; also I've added 33 grams of lead mostly in handle at bottom to obtain a 10 point head lite racquet.

    This has produced a much bigger serve and easy manuverability at the net. I'm almost exclusively a doubles player.

    Lead applied.
    4 grams @ 3 o'clock
    4 grams @ 9 o'clock
    4 grams @ handle.

    Feels more stable with less twisting on returns and miss hits.
    Feels little headheavy which's makes it slower to get moving on volleys.
