    Hi Guys

    Ideally this is for either Mark or Troy who quite liked this frame.
    I have this strung up with cyclone tour at 52lbs, and really like it so far, if I could increase the amount of plow through or free power slightly I would love this frame.

    Have you any suggestions on how best to achieve this , either lead anywhere from 3/9 10/2 or 12?
    I currently have the old pure strikes black and red, with a leather grip and lead at 3/9 where the x sider tech is ...They weigh 345g strung so im looking to try and replicate these a little , as theyre beat up beyond repair

    Thanks guys for any help you can provide

    @Jamesm182,
    I would likely start with adding some weight at the 3/9 o'clock locations of the hoop. This will help with plow through, and power, as well as some torsional stability. If you just want to up the power, and plow through, you can get away with using less weight, by adding it at 12 o'clock.

    Added a bit of lead at 3 and 9 and massively improves the comfort of the frame , sweetspot feels a lot bigger , and also adds a touch more plow and stability.
    Might try moving it to 10/2 and see how that plays.
    Thanks Very much for the advice troy/tw

    @Jamesm182,
    Nice! Glad that the added weight is working well for you. I may have to pull the Aero VS Tour off the racquet wall, re-string, and add a bit of weight myself...
