    You probably need to either remove some of that lead, or add a little more to the handle to change up the balance a bit. I think removing some of what you've already put on would make the biggest difference though.

    When you added that lead, did you slowly build it up to that point, or just slap it all on there at once? Seems like it might bet better to build up slowly, so you can see at what point your serves start to suffer.

    lol. There's your problem right there. Ditch the iPhone, and your serves will be back to normal in no time!

    Wow, you're such a smart guy...not!




    OP, your lead tapes made it way too heavy for you...

    try removing some of the lead tape and see if that makes a difference. if not, relocate some of that lead into the handle.
