    For power and plowthrough lead at 3&9 works very well. 12 may work but only really if you contact high on the stringbed all the time.

    Hey! I literally JUST answered this question a second ago, so I'll paste here...

    Since you want stability, add some lead at 3 And 9. (Both sides of the racket).

    Then since you're using a Head, it should have the Trap Door buttcap. Just pop it open and add some lead or sticky tack in there until you are around the same balance that you were when you started, and voila! More stability and close to same balance if done correctly! :)
