    Lead tape at 3 and 9 o'clock. The amount of weight is up to you.

    I added 3.5grams to each side at 3 and 9 and just picking it up and swinging with it feels so much better and stable. where it says head on the side i basically just covered it

    Dont really know much about lead tape so i picked some up at SA and bought 1/2... didnt have 1/4 so i just cut it in half and yeah.

    What are some other weights people use? Jus for reference for future use.

    i dont use the LM (i used to), but currently use the MG radical MP. However, just like when I used the LM, i have some lead tape wrapped around the throat of the frame. pretty easy to get it evenly spread, just use the "HEAD" on the side of the racquet as reference. on the LM i used to add just a little on the top of the frame as well, but i dont with the MG

    I put around 10 inches of the 1/4 inch around the 12 oclock position and added a leather grip and it feels really good to me. Nice and stable and perfect swingweight...

    I had replaced the hydro grip with a leather and an overgrip. Feels very nice swinging.
