    Have you added lead tape to your Flexpoint? If so, where and how much? Does the lead tape affect the Flexpoint holes? Comments?

    I have a couple of 3" strips on the handle, and in the upper loop. I wanted to make it heavier but retain the balance. I don't feel and difference in how the holes behave, heck didn't feel them much before. Still love the racket though.

    10 grams at 3 and 9 of my flexpoint prestige. 1/4" leaad tape doesn't affect the flex holes at all. It opened up the sweet spot, and it plays even better than it did before (which was good to begin with).

    Yeah don't worry about the two precisely engineered holes in the frame. My FXP Radical Tour likes lead.
