    pardon my stupidity, but what is lead tape and where on the racquet does it go? I always hear people talk about adding weight with lead tape but I'm not sure what they're talknig about. Thanks.

    you use lead tape to customize the weight and balance of your racquet. there should be a link somewhere on the TW home page to a lead tape tutorial. or you can do a search for it - should be pretty easy to find.

    Is adding 18 grams of lead tape to a racquet considered a lot?
