    Have any of you guys ever tried this before? I just hate to see the top of my racquet all dinged up. Rite now i was just trihng out some of that gamma clear tape, and its pretty worthless, because it did nothing to protect the racquet, unless i put a few layers on.


    Does adding head tape make a significant difference in the weight of the racquet? Should i just get rid of he head tape altogether?


    thanks

    I have used it and it works OK however I found that a couple of layers are necessary to achieve any degree of protection for the racquet. And yes you are adding 4-5 grams of weight to the head of the racquet with a strip of the Babolat Super Tape.

    hymmm, 4-5 grams, is that weight neglible, or does it make a difference? im already using a diablo, so its pretty heavy.

    I would say you probably will not notice the effect of an additional 4-5 grams with the Prince Diablo since, as you mention it is already a fairly heavy racquet.
