    I actually tried your shellac idea for weatherproofing gut. I don't think I would keep doing it because re-application after each session is kind of annoying.

    Rinsing out the brush so it wouldn't harden killed it.

    I just tried this tape on my new six one 95s, applied to 3 and 9 position.

    The tape is 1/4 inch thick and close to 0.8mm thick..

    when applied to said racquet, I feel there is a chance for it to come off in the event of a framed shot. Also, the tape although rubbery in nature, does not conform well to the curves of the PWS of the six one.

    Will probably replace with conventional lead tape....

    I applied the tape on 3'oclock and 9' oclock for more stability and weight in the head. My racquet is a Dunlop F100 classic and the tape workes wonderfully on the frame. Now I got the right stability i won't and my racquet is less woubelly on "off hits " . Perfectly alternative to lead tape. Can recommend to test.

    I also had issues with tungsten tape coming off of my racquet. But I used tungsten putty in the butt cap of my DR98 and that works very well.

    My tape came also off, I took universal glue and now it stays in place.
