Thanks .

I've only used Gamma's lead tape. All but one package stayed on my racquets, but it's also possible I had dirt and various other contaminant on my friends.

Why? Don't know of other lead tapes available and never bothered looking for a different brand. It's lead with adhesive on the back. Don't need to get anymore fancy than that.

3M 421 is the tape I use the most.

The silver one.

I've got a large reel of thinnish tape at the moment, but sometimes it's good to have the wider stuff to. It helps to concerntrate the weight in 1 spot rather than spreading it out.

I wouldnt use 'branded' weight as it tends to look ugly on the frame.

Regards

I used these:



They are 3g each. I punched holes in them for gromets, and painted them white to match the racquet.

Here's the result:



I added 2 strips on each side, at 3 & 9.

I like the Tourna brand ones, but for a more economical choice i buy a 72" roll of 1/2" tape from e.....bay

i also like tourna's, the 1/4 inch - the thinner the better it sticks and doesn't come off

I thought lead tape is lead tape?
u get like a 100 inch (1/2 inch width) industrial roll for like less than $9 off the bay.
customize to your heart's content.

I am cheap, I usually use electrical tape to tape over so none of that lead gets exposed for health reasons.

@D-Money, very sharp indeed. Gotta try that on my stick

Right now I'm still playing around with different setups, so I need tape that I can peel off when I don't want it but still sticks to the frame in any weather. I like the Gamma 1/4" lead tape. It's easy to apply, easy to remove, and conveniently fits in the inside part of the frame in almost any racquet.

I have to say that is some amazing work.
