    I feel the POG oversize is a solid racquet with a great sweet spot, however I would like more power. Where would be the best placement for lead tape to give it more pop, but not at the risk of hitting shots long?
    I normally play with racquets with 95 head sizes weighted up to about 13 ounces, but thought I'd give the POG 107 OS a try, for the bigger sweet spot. And I really like the feel of it. I have the latest version of it btw.

    I've played with the POG OS for most of the last four years.

    Have you tried stringing lower? This racquet has a ton of power. I find control to be the bigger issue.

    It feels great when I get into a rally, but then randomly, some shots will just go into the net, on shots that I think should clear it by a lot. And end up missing by a lot--into the net, sometimes not even halfway up. Am going to do more hitting tomorrow.

    Adding weight at 12 o'clock increases power the most while adding the least weight. You have to add small amounts and test it out to see if your shots are falling where you want them to, there's no set formula as everyone's stroke and strength are different.
