    Why do pro's use lead tape if their racquet manufacturer could just customize it for them

    Maybe they change setup for different surfices or after an injury so its easier to change with lead.

    Its a lot easier and cost effective to fine tune a racket to spec with lead than it is to get your manufacturing process to produce to spec.
