    I have a Wilson nTour and i can open up the racquet and everything but once I do that there's foamy material in hte handle. Do I take it out to put lead in it or what?

    The handle is most likely made of Polyurethane foam. If you want to add weight to it you have a couple of options. You can add strips of lead tape under the grip or you can remove the butt cap, drill a cavity in the end of the handle and glue the weight in there. Take a look at the learning center linked from the TW home page. There's a section in there about customizing racquets using lead tape.
