Well, I am a mid/mid-plus player and just picked up this rather large racket...Its a Made in Austria LM Radical Oversized...I really want to customize it to make it more playable. I am really bad with the lead tape **** and really would like your help. What combinations of lead tape with this racket have you found best and to all the geniuses out there can you help me get a lead tape combo that will match the POG OS or the New Agassi LE.

The Current Specs:
Strung Weight: 11.2oz / 318g
Balance: 3pts Head Light
Swingweight: 330

Wanted Specs:
Strung Weight: 12.1oz / 343g
Balance: 6pts Head Light
Swingweight: 338

HELP! Please

I've played around with similar specs and the following works well for me. I'd put about 1 oz of weight at the top part of the handle. If you use the whole grip (e.g., use a double handed grip), just put this off the top of the handle. I have single handed strokes so I typically wrap the weight under an overgrip in the last few inch of the handle. This extra weight will give you extra mass and better plow through for your hits but still put it in an area that doesn't make the racquet unwieldly. When I do this my racquets end up about 5 to 6 points head light.

I think by the "top" part he means near the collar, or towards the throat of the frame...

You probably just need the weight under the grip to acheive what you are looking for, and a leather grip might help as well; it will add even more weight on the handle. Hope this works for you; I'm not much of an expert as some others here - I don't know why the custom geeks haven't responded yet :)
