How much will 2 grams of lead on each side (3 + 9 o'clock) affect the balance point on the LM Radical MP?

bcsax123: I think cys19 was asking HOW MUCH will the balance point be affected, not IF the balance point will be affected. cys19: Reach out to 'Court Jester' and he can do the calculations for you in a jiffy and tell you what the new balance point will be for your modded setup of 2gms of lead each at 3 and 9.

1 - measure the current balance point of your racquet 2 - add the lead 3 - remeasure the balance point and see how much it has changed.

how can you do that without a balance machine ? i've always wondered what my lm radical's balance point is now since i've added lead.

Either make one yourself with a dowel and yardstick/meterstick, or just find a flat table and put some small round stick (I use a round pen) and find the balance point. Then measure with a yardstic/meterstick/tape measure

Adding 2g at 3 & 9 is basically a pointless excercise, it will not change balance and it will not affect stability. You need to add at least 4g to make any discernible difference. 8g is even better.

so if the balance point was about 31cm from the end of the racquet, how many pts headlight would that be ?

woah ... so i took my lm rad from 4 pts headlight to around 10? sweet i never knew i played with such a headlight racquet

Two grams....you might as well put on a vibration dampener. It would make a difference, I suppose. Just a very small one. I agree with those that say use four or more grams.

For your example: adding 2 gr. at 3&9 will change the bal. from 3,1 to 2,8 HL or 333mm to 334,2mm. If adding 4 gr, bal. goes from 3,1 to 2,3 HL or 333mm to 335,4mm. Hope that helps!
