    What does putting lead tape at the 6 or 12 o' clock positions do?

    Thanks,

    Adding lead at 12 increases power and stretches the sweetspot towards the 12 o' clock position.
    To my knowledge, adding lead to 6 adds mainly to the static weight, but not much else. The sweetspot also expands downwards towards the 6 o' clock position, but most people don't want their sweetspots down there.

    lead at the 6 o'clock pulls the sweat spot down and makes the frame raises the swing weight, but might make the frame a little sluggish.
