    is there any alternatatives for adding weight to your racquet?

    perhaps something that doesnt include any form of cancer-causing materials....

    I mentioned in your other thread that you could use SILVER, GOLD or PLATINUM!

    And, if you think putting lead on your racket is dangerous ...

    Think about the GMO's that you eat ...
    Think about the fumes on the street that you breath in every 2.5 seconds ...
    Think about the chemicals in toileteries ...
    Think about the food preservatives ...

    ...

    If you're really too scared about handling a leaded-up racket ...

    DON'T PLAY! Go sleep!

    The only way to play with lead is to be one with lead. You gotta use all of your 5 senses and try to be one with the lead. Licking the lead is the most important part though. I am too scared to do that, so I just stick with my stock.

    Silicone can be injected into the racket handle.

    You can buy magnetic strips with adhesive backing on them from Home Depot. They are thicker than lead tape though so you probably can put them under the grip.

    The reason lead is used is because it is HEAVY so you can use it in small amounts at specific points. It is malleable so you can make it thin, yet having a good mass, to "spread" it over an area.

    If you're really, really scared of touching it, as in placing lead in exposed areas, just cover it up with very thin masking tape. Too diffficult to think?

    And, yes, exposed uranium will be excellent because it doesn't give you lead poisoning or cancer ...

    You'll be dead before cancer takes you ...
