Adding to the 3 & 9 is supposed to increase stability. Adding to the 12 is supposed to add power. Adding lead at either of those places will alter the balance point, making it less head light (or it will make it head heavy, depending on how much lead you add).Rafa Nadal said:ok i dont know if i test @ 3 and 9 or at 12 first, any opinions?
Adding weight to the 12 o'clock position would be the most drastic alteration of balance to head heavy so you need to read up on it more before making such statements.eagle said:Do you want your racquet to be more head heavy (3/9) or just add weight without changing its balance (12)?
You decide what you want to accomplish with the tapes and then proceed with it.
