Morally speaking, do you think it's a form of cheating? I've been working on my serve for a good part of the last two years, being a short and slim guy, my first serve usually takes two bounces to hit the back fence, only on really good serve would I be able to hit it with one bounce. I've since concluded that I just don't have the strength to hit bomb after bomb like a pro. Well, fast forward to today, when I finally got to experiment with lead tape, and boy...I was just simply stunt by what it can do to my serve. I was hitting back fence with one bounce regularly. Even on serves that I don't regard very highly... But now sitting at home in front of my computer, it's messing with my mind. I was an avid table tennis player before, that was the time when speed glue became popular. I was working so hard to get more spin, more power on my stroke...never thought of using speed glue like everyone else did on my club. I subsequently quit the sport because I just couldn't muster the same speed/spin my friends were generating... Now, I have a very similar feel about lead tape in tennis. I do enjoy watching my serve hitting the back fence with one bounce...but what do I tell people when they ask how I do it? "Oh...nvm the two years of working my butt off on my serve, just put lead tape on ur racket and you are golden." Just not the way to do it.
