    just curious about head light vs. head heavy and relating my recent experience.

    bot an i.radical OS at a really cheap price.....

    have played it with a little lead tape and alot of lead tape, generally at 3 and 6 oclock positions, i like 12 position for serve but i think it changes the balance of the racquet too much.

    anyhow, with a little or no lead tape, i can whip forehand really well, but my 2H backhand is awful..............

    with alot of lead tape, my 2H backhand is amazing, but tons and tons of mishits on forehand.

    there is the expected effect on ease/depth of shots....easy to get deep with head heavy but have to keep it in.

    is my experience with the lead tape typical??? the opposite effects of FH/2HB, does that have something to do with position of hands, i.e. 2H has the lead hand on racquet or strength (am i late with the HH forehand??)

    just curious, appreciate everyone's help.
