    okay everyone i need help, i want to know what to do in this situation, i recently bought 3 head microgel radicals OS and i love the racquets, i want to make the racquet overall a little heavier,

    i dont really have experience with lead tape, i dont really know how to apply the lead tape, i mean know how to just stick it on but i mean where is exactly is the best place to put it, and is it easy to apply, what do i have to look out for when i do this and does it have to be perfectly even and how much do i use, and what kind should i get so that it does not ruin the paintjob on the racquet after i take it off,

    im thinking to add weight cause i like heavier racquets, and i think it will be easier on my arm, my racquet is strung with Luxilon Big Banger ALU 16L @59lbs pics would be great, also do i have to put the lead tape on, before i string the racquet

    if you can post pics of the lead tape on your racquets it would be awesome
