    It's a beast as it is, I wouldn't even consider putting lead tape on it.

    Godbless the POG!!!

    on my MPs, i have 14g of tape at 3 and 9, and 14g (or so) on the handle via a one size tubex build-up (i buy POGs one size small so that i can add weight this way). total weight, with grip, 2 overgrips and strings comes in at 385g (about 13.5oz), but almost the same balance point as stock models.

    the sound it makes when serving (strung with gut at 60lbs - BDE 16g) is awesome.

    Not on my OS, maybe a bit at the tip on my Mid though.

    At 3 and 9 on the head, 3 grams each. Also a shrink wrap under the leather grip and a couple grams on the butt. I used to have 6 grams at 12 on the head. I could really crank grounstrokes with that, but it was not maneuverable enough for approach shots, half volleys, etc.
