    if you take the grip off, usually the butt cap is attached to the shaft by a few staples... you can pry them off and the butt cap will come loose.

    for the purpose of balancing a racket though, you may not need to remove the butt cap.

    I had to balance a racket just an hour ago... just take the grip off, and put lead tape on the shaft, and put the grip back on.

    No idea, Head rackets have a removable door to the inside part of the handle, makes it super simple for adding lead.
