    How would you do this. Someone reccommended doing this to me, but I can't figure out how much lead to place and where the lead should be placed.

    First thing you do is go out on the court. Play a pusher that makes you really mad. At 0-3 0-15 hit an absolute shocker and go "f**king hell!!!!" and then smash it to one million pieces.

    i am not 100% sure on this, but i dont think it is possible, as you racquet already is too heavy

    You can only Safinize a Head Prestige. I would Federize your nCode 90.;) You'll win much more slams if you do.

    My kinda' guy, Eric. Me hardcore too. Head Liqiud Metal Mid = one of a few racquets I like with no extra weight added...although, come to think about it, I have added a little lead on the handle lately. But no on the hoop.

    I've already got too many of those, I'm running out of trophy space.:D Oh well, I guess a couple more wouldn't hurt. So, how do I federerize my raquet?

    No-one really knows for sure. But i would suggest adding 4g of lead tape to the 3 & 9 positions and playtest. Keep adding till you get the feel you like.

    Would that be 4g total, or 4g at each spot?

    To Federize your racquet, add lead to your handle to make it more polarized.

    Add 4g in total, then keep adding 2g either side till it feels right.

    The thing is that in the actual thread he said he used a lighter racquet becuase he could safinize a prestige because it was alreasdy too heavy, safins sticks are made lighter and then customized to how he wants them. That is why i said you wont be able to do it properly as your swing weight will be way too high.
