    Anyone have a suggestion on where to add lead tape to this stick to give it more mass yet not lose control? Getting pushed around the forehand sometimes, two hand backhand is fine though. 3 and 9 the butt???? Help!
    Strung with sonic pro 17 at 58 lbs

    Thanks for any replys

    3 and 9 is going to be the general consensus. 6 and 12 is better for more outright spin and swing weight increase, and 3 and 9 is going to be better for stability and plow through.

    There are literally TONS of threads on this topic, and a quick search will help you a lot. :)

    Good luck finding a good set up!

    I would recommend inside of the throat cause the Black is already head heavy...

    I Triple Threated it (10:00, 2:00 and under the grip) with great results, but ditched it as it was demolishing my elbow.

    I would try 2g at 3 and 2g at 9 for better stability. I would not suggest lead at 12, because exo3 black is not that much headlight and lead at 12 ussually add power, which this stick have plenty already.

    May I just ask if this frame is very stiff because it ranked at 71?

    I mean is it really stiff like Babolats or not?

    Frame is stiff as Babolat, but in reality it plays more comfortable because of the O ports design.

    I play with this frame using Wilson NXT Tour 18 and despite its stiffness rating, it plays very comfortable!

    Si, the team version is slightly head heavy, but the regular black is on the head light side. That may have been where the confusion had come in.

    In regards to the stiffness, I've tried both versions of it (team and regular), and in both cases I wouldn't have felt like it played stiff at all. No arm problems to speak of (I did have some with the Head Speed line).
