    Is it possible to make a m-fil300 just as powerful as a pd with leadtape.

    Put lead to 12 o'clock. But your racquet head speed will decrease if you put it too much.

    when i tried a pd strung with poly, it felt as if it had as much power as my mfils, so idk, anyway try out diff strings on the mfil like nrg2 or something and add some leadtape around the head

    I don't want to lower my tension and i want to place around max. 8 grams of lead tape at 12 o'clock because of the sw. Is this enough to get to the powerlevel of the pd?

    I already did that. That gives the racket slightly more power but that's it.

    Change strings, add lead to head, string looser.

    Better yet, get a PD, there is a limit to what you can do with power when you cannot change headsize/shape, string density, racquet stiffness, beam shape, etc. The whole point of the Mfil-300 is that it does not play with the player of the PD.

    Ok, i don't want to string looser and i like the strings that i have so this makes it pretty clear to me.
    Thanks
