    Im a newbie at adding lead. I want to hit a little heavier ball and more stability without increasing swing weight too much. Can someone tell we where to add lead tape? Also, is the butt cap removable on this racqet or should i take the grip off?

    Remember to keep a stable balance

    I agree that the 3 and 9 positions are great places to add a little weight, but I recommend that you add an equal amount of weight to your handle. If you don't do this your swing weight will increase dramatically and you'll more than likely be unsatisfied with the level of control your racket offers.

    Prince butt caps do pop off. There should be a little crevice at the base of the "P" where you can slip in a knifeblade or a small screwdriver.

    Enjoy your O3!

    I added some at 12 as well, but I didn't add any to the handle yet (for one, no bumper guard) meaning the balance hasn't been tipped as heavily as it should have been. (It's still HL by a good margin.)
