    i want to make my finaces babolat pd more head light but i was wondering the best place to add lead tape to the handle. on her last one i just put strips over the grip but under the overgrip. can i put some in int he butt cap or should i put strips under the grip?? does that have the same effect as in the butt cap?

    Achieving more head light will a matter of much weight you add to a greater degree than where you add it. I have put 18 grams inside the handle of my PD+'s just under the trap door. I also put 6 grams under the grip at the top of the grip. The added weight has definitely improved the playability of the racquet.
