    i went through so much lead tape experiment cause i tried to add lead tape one by one. What i mean is that when i feel like i need more i add more. Now my setup is this i added about 9 grams of lead tape inside the handle with cotton so it doesn't rattle. I added about 3 grams total to 3 and 9 o clock. Another 3 grams total to 10 and 2 o clock. And i added about 1 gram at 12 o clock. I get a great combination from this but everyone has their own preference. I recommend to just start added on lead tape and experiment. Just add a little bit of strips and keep adding until your satisfied. It would helped if u had an extra o3 white so u can play with both different balances to see which ones feels better to you. So my o3 white is about 11.8-12 oz now.

    I experimented a little too but in the end I went with only 1.5gm's at 12 o'clock, makes it serve bombs without over powering groundies.

    was it stable enough on returns cause i needed extra weights at 3 and 9 to make it more stable.

    Yeah the return is probably my best shot when my game is working.

    I just use 1/4 tape and fold it into the ports, its shapes really well and looks neat and tidy.
