    Are any pros or high level players you know of using the k pro tour?
    Seems like a very good, high quality frame to me with about 6 grams of lead at 2 and 10.

    Good call, I thought she used the open but that is the tour pro.
    I doubt she adds much lead if any.

    Looks like she uses a 15g in the mains and 18 in the crosses.
    Anyone know her set up?

    Awesome frame. One small complaint is the reletively light static mass (a power trade off). My winning combo is as follows: String down: ~ 26.5/26.5 (or roughly 58lbs.) with ALU Power/VS Natural Gut, and add 15 grams of lead at the handle end (most that choose this frame do so for it's manueverability and HL characteristics) to bulk up the static weight.

    *note for adding lead to the handle: carefully unwrap the leather grip (if you play the original leather grip), weight out the lead tape and wrap it around the pallet starting .5 inches from the butt cap end and ending roughly 4 inches from the butt cap end, re-wrap original grip.

    Maybe give this set-up a shot and tell me what you think...
