    I'm playing with a Dunlop 300G and although I really like the frame I want something a little heavier. Not too sure about adding lead tape.

    Can the 'Tour Mold' from Dunlop be purchased from anywhere?

    I have a 300G with about 30 grams of lead tape, works like a charm for me. However, you could try a 200G, witch is about 50 grams heavier than a 300G.

    9,6 gram around the handle against the buttcap 9 gram overgrip
    1,8 gram in the throat
    8.8 at 3 and 9 (4,4 in a double layer)
    0.8 at 12

    The balance of the racket stays the same... (it balances at the throat) and I feel it is more stable when returing hard hit balls.

    I have used lead tape and an overgrip to make the racket heavier.

    I put 9,6 grams of lead tape around the handle as close to the butcap as posible and installed the grip and overgrip over the lead tape.

    There is 1,8 gram of lead tape at the six o clock position on the racketface, with the handle down.

    There is 0,8 gram of lead tape at the very top of the racket, at the 12 o clock position on the racketface.

    There are 4,4 grams of lead tape in a double layer at both the three o clock and nine o clock positions.

    In Euro, they use commas for decimal points, so yes, you are correct; 9,6 grams is 9.6 grams.
