    It really depends on the player and what they are looking to achieve. There really is no set amount. I will say that many do put lead at 3 and 9 but there are also many who place it under the bumper. Like I said, it is a specific amount.

    I know for the fact that Nadal and Moya put S H I T load of lead tape under the bumper and roddick puts on 3 and 9 its visible you can see it when you upclose of his racquet. Also Alberto martin puts under the bumper i know this cause i talked to him at the us open last year, i actually got to hold his racquet. He also said the same thing i asked him where do pros put lead on the babolat pure drive, cause that was the racquet i was using at the time but not anymore i switched to Yonex rdx 500 mid, anyways he said that it really depends on the players how they like it the feel and such.
    Just try it on diffrent spot and the amount see how you like it.
