    I have a head microgel extreme that weighs 11.2 unstrung and is 6pts headlight. I feel like I want some added weight to achieve more power and is lead tape the answer to my problem. Also where should I apply the lead tape.

    just remember that when you add lead tape to the head, it changes the SW. if you're looking for more stability as well, than feel free to add accordingly. just follow the link ^^^

    Try this...

    Assuming you'd like it a bit heavier, less HL and more stable during off-center shots...

    Try adding 8-12 grams (total) at 3/9 (i.e. 4-6 grams on each side).

    That will bring the racquet to about 12 oz. strung, make it about 1-2 pts. less HL while increasing the twistweight to counter off-center shots.

    Overall... good specs.
