Becker leather grip with overgrip

lead in most places. A majority of it is in the butcap but also under the leather grip at 5 inches. on the hoop there is a little bit everywhere at 12, 3, 9, 10 and 2. More at 9 and 3 than anywhere else on the hoop. Id say there is 5-8 times as much lead in the handle as there is on the hoop. Im in good shape (an athletic 220), I bike and do dumbells... moving around the court faster than I ever have.

I hit with my Backup YTPMP which weighs a mere 12.25 and it felt like a whippy lil toy version of this beast version.
