    I want to try customizing a IG Radical MP with silicone, lead and black CAP´s. Have not seen this frame CAP´ed so far. Cant it be done? Is not this 260-mold possible to CAP at all?

    If yes, does anyone have pics of how it looks with black Caps?

    why not just lead it up? I regret I put cap grommet on 3 of mg rads.

    1 not perfect fit, takes quite sometime to install
    2 some grommets flush with or even inside the frame. terrible for natural gut.
    3 it sort of depolarize the racquet.

    Any idea of how much weight and SW caps add, and how much they change the balance?

    I think they do, but i hardly recommend you not to do it. They have different tieoffs and it will be a complete PITA and in the end you may not be able to fit them properly...
