    Sorry if this is a stupid question but how much lead would i need to add at 10 and 2 to make my lm prestige mp around 4pts head light.

    According to tennis warehouse they are supposed to be 8pts head light.

    i only want a rough estimate so if anyone has done this before and could let me know it would be appreciated

    Don't know lm prestige specs, but the following should apply to any racquet. If you add about 17 gr of lead centered at 57 cm from the buttcap you will make any racquet 4pts less headlight. I am assuming here the the 10 and 2 location is 57 cm from the buttcap.

    Pls find below the link to tw tool for racquet customisation, I find this easy to use.

    Sorry if this is obvious, but that means 17 gr of lead total, so 8.5 gr on each side. Quite a lot....
