    Its obvious that Roddick has lead on 3 and 9 because it can be seen, but he also has lead on the 12 under the bumper guard, i asked andy after the practice against jeff morrison on sunday night at Louis Armstrong court. They begun practice at 7 o clock when everybody left. Only about 20 people were there watching him practice, those were the people who stick around until the last moment , waiting for something to happen. Well I asked Andy after the practice if I can have his racquet he told me that he need'em this week and then i asked him if he has any lead on the top he told me that he doee but he honestly doesnt know how much he put it there. So it was quite intresting to know that he also had a lead on the top. I always thought that he only had a lead on 3 and 9

    All the pros who have added weight to their racquet will have lead under the bumper guard. Some will counter weight it, other won't.

    why under the bumper and not just on the frame like the 3 and 9 position? Seems kinda hard to remove the bumper with the enlarged grommets on the PD's.
