    It's said to be 4 Pts hl anyone lead handle to make it even more hl? If lead the head at 3 and 9 while having the lead at handle as well would it make any difference? Please share your leading experiences!

    If you put the same amount in both places, then of course it would be the same.

    I play with the APDGT and have tested a few lead set ups that i can share with ya.

    If you like the balance of it now, you can add even amounts of lead to the head and handle to keep the balance the same, but the racquet will be heavier and more powerful.

    If you want to make it More head light, add weight soly to the handle, and the racquet will be more headlight, but u may loose some stablitly on the frame.

    My personal choice is adding a little bit of lead at 3 and 9 only on the frame, which added alot of pace on my top spin shots. I can swing through the ball on my backhand better as well, while keeping the same rocket launching feel the apdgt has.

    Buy some tape and go to town - try different set ups and see what you like best.

    I thought it needed some at the 4 and 8, just because it felt overly polarized.
    And then a lot in the handle. Like an oz. or so.
