    where do you guys have your lead tape and why? i have 3 grams on 3 and 9 for stability and power. im thinking of reducing it to 2 grams at 3 and 9 and counter weighting with 1 gram on the handle to make the racket more head light.

    I've got 3 grams each at 3 and 9 and just added an overgrip and a leather replacement as a counterbalance, works great for me.

    I have six grams at 3 and 9 o'clock but extending up to 2 and 10 o'clock.

    I tried more and I tried less; this just felt right. It helps to have 4 of the same racquet. I can be more scientific when comparing variables.
