    I bout some lead tape and it can be cut in 3 gram strips.

    The question is, if I want to add only 6 grams at 10 and 2, should I add one strip at 10 on one side and another strip at 2 on the other side or should I just cut the 3 gram strips in half and apply four?

    try it out and see which way is better for you. lead tape is removable so its not a big deal.

    I'm no physicist, but if I add one strip at 10 on one side of the hoop and another strip at 2 on the other side, it would still be balanced.

    So then I should just cut them in half and apply four lead tapes.

    Apply four: more even balance.
