    I have a paint job racquet and dont want to mess up the paint with lead tape, since it is rather difficult to take off and can pull up paint. Where else could i put it on a prince o3 white? thanks. I know about putting it under the head gaurd, but are there any other ideas? thanks.

    With the prince o3 frames I don't think there are a lot of places to hide lead. If you have a "pj" frame it probably allready has weight placed at locations for the intended player. That's why I like the Head pj can place lead just about anywhere under the CAP grommets.

    behind you, but i have to be somewhere else by the
    in the O3 ports, and under the grommets/bumper or you could inject it
  4. In an attempt to answer question...

    Before applying and if wanting to keep all decals or paint intact upon removal, you may remove some of the adhesion of lead tape by dabbing at it with your skin (or other hard object if you're really anal about trapping skin oils).

    The only other thing that comes to mind is applying another type of tape between the frame and lead tape, but some tapes might leave residue, especially when playing in sunny conditions, which doesn't seem to happen with the usual lead tape.
