Since the racquet is so comfy, I am going to try Cyclone 18g on there. So far, I had alot of success with Dunlop Hexy Fiber 17g (doesn't last a long time but feels and bites really well)
Still loving the NYC! After hitting one of Chris' sticks that head heavily leaded at the handle (check out his blog here), I decided to do that for mine. I don't know exactly how much lead tape I used, but I wrapped lead tape almost from the butt cap all the way to the end of the handle. Then I counter weighted it with just a little bit of lead at 10 and 2 o'clock. It's now around 11.7 ounces with a swingweight of 313 and 7 points head light balance.

So far so good!

Jason, TW
