I added lead tape by wrapping it around the throat of the racquet (just above the grip) and covering it with the rubber band and counter balancing that with more lead at 2 and 10 O'Clock on the head. I like the raquet much heavier in the 12.7 ounce range, about 7 points headlight, strung tight with poly, 2 extra overgrips. Definite worth a try custom weighted for manly men. I am hitting a slice backhand that is pushing my opponents back. Drop shots are violent. Demo it with some extra lead in above mentioned spots.
