    Hey guys! i have 3 ktour 95s and im trying to put lead tape on there. If i want it to be more headlight ( like more of an intermediate racquet) , how many g of lead tape should i put and where? i think i might do it on 3 and 9. Thanks for the tips!

    How to customize your racquet by TW

    I guess this answer your question.

    Also you mean more headheavy right?

    Well it depends.... Moya plays with a racquet 10 points head heavy. It all comes down to personal preference and since you said you wanted to ad lead at 3' and 9' I tought you wanted to make it more headheavy.

    Adding weight at 3' and 9' will give you torsional stability and make it more hh wich also gives you more stability.

    I think adding about 8-10g of lead at 3' and 9' or 10' and 2' will give what you want. No need to be afraid to try! After I added about 10g of lead to my RDS001 I liked it so much that I've put another 15g. Now that I have about 25g of lead at 3' 9' and 12' I think it feels way more stable.

    well i want to make it at least 8 poitns headlight. can someone tell me how much lead tape do i add to the bottom? and also, since i only have lead tape, can someone tell me how to attach it to the bottom? My buttcap has a trapdoor that im trying to open right now. Do i just tape them in the holes?
