Will the tape peel off any paint if I remove it ?
As you can see I a noob to this customization stuff. Thanks
The best thing for the 1/2 inch tape is to take off the grommets, get the tape measure to your liking, place tape in the center over the grommet hole, best at 3 & 9 (wont really mess up balance), poke holes in the tape were grommets go, reinstall grommets. It looks better that way.
Place the lead on the inside of the hoop, like I said, best at 3 & 9 for same balance. Will also help torsional stability, which is huge with those racquets.
I had the PSGT for a long time and found that 1/4 lead tape is a better fit and easy to install and remove.
To remove, use a hair dryer. Go over the lead about 60 seconds and it will come off with no paint removal.
Enjoy the sticks, they are great with a poly, syn gut hybrid also.
