    I used to apply lead tape at 6, 12, 3, and 9 o'clock positions .. same length of lead tape and always on the "opposite" inside of the frame. However, I do not use them anymore. If you apply lead tape properly, it won't affect the overall balance.

    Yes, it is usually around the 6 o'clock area.

    yep.....BB is correct...most balance points are close to the bottom of the head.......3/9 o'clock would make it more head heavy.....12 o'clock....much more so.....
