I don't know who's crazier, johncauthen-you or me for believing you. But I'll bite... A couple questions: You keep referring the ideal placement of lead is at "the top of the handle". Do you mean top "half" of the handle as your pics suggest, and not into the throat? In the photo where you attach/tape the sheet lead weight: Wouldn't adding a weight to just one side of the handle affect balance (not to mention grip)? To be consistent, I'm guessing you'd have to grip the same side for each stroke. I suppose the sheet lead is more economical/space efficient. Please clarify these issues. I'm getting a feel at the direction your message is leading. If this is all so true, (and it DOES make alot of sense), then at least a handful of players must be privy to this info. And Roddick of all of them: how could he not know this? You say this has been occuring since 1989 (is that right?), then his previous PDs must also have been injected with this "new concept" of flawed frame. Then why all of a sudden-now at this AO is this subject being brought up and his racquet scrutinized? This kind of info would be hard to contain and it's extremely uncomfortable to think it was withheld for so long. Did Pete Sampras know? If he did, why did he keep his mouth shut even after his retirement. No doubt some potential profits were forfeited.
