    Just picked up a new BLX ProStaff 95 off the board.
    I put on a leather grip and placed some gut in the mains and Pro Sonic in the crosses. So far feels very nice. To increas plow through with the least amount of lead possible, any suggestions on where the lead should be place? At 12?
    Thanks

    If you want to maximize twistweight, the optimal location would be at 3 and 9.

    However, you can easily increase the swingweight by adding lead at 12, effectively increasing the overall power of the racquet.

    I personally think that the racquet's already pretty good in the stability department, but it could just use a higher swingweight, that's all.
