    Ok so I've been doing some experimenting w/ lead tape on my KBlades in hopes how giving them a little extra punch. I've heavily leaded the throats and put a few strips at 8 & 2 in the head...

    Never really thought about it before - Does lead tape do anything to the physical part of the frame - like increase the potential for cracking or chipping?

    I know the ? is random, just wondering...

    FYI - KBlade plays SWEET leaded up as long as you can handle the weight.

    Like I said I've just been experimenting ... put a diff replacement grip so the hands fits perfectly on the side displaying "KBLADE 98" upward so I tried 8 2 for a change in serves, works rather nice...

    Second stick is leaded same way w/ 10 and 2 on the head which obviously gives a more even feel....

    Like I said - just experimenting, I'm younger so I feel like I may as well try everything to see what it feels like...

    Anyways - I also prefer the 1/4 lead as oppsed to the 1/2 - easier to work with
