    why not just give the racket the LD treatment?

    cut two strands of athletic tape, about 0,5cm wide (cut an notch, you can tear the rest).
    as long as you like, and tape it over the frame. good for 1,5-2g most of the time.

    Easy, cheap, available...what more could you ask for?

    thanks to all replies.

    I have now finally got my lead tape and Ive make things to get the racket safe

    First I took a layer of red nail polish. It didnt look good and reminded me of the french flag . I didnt care about that and after put another extra layer of transparent color. That wasnt enough so I took some electric tape to cover it more.

    The white electric tape isnt really stuck so Im gonna get some superglue to glue it and then add an extra layer of transparent nail polish.

    The balance point is now a wooping 330mm

    Here's a pic of how it looks like after the three applyments(?)

    i put it at 10 12 and 2 o clock.

    I know the optimum position is 12 o clock but a little more head heavy wont hurt and the shaft is a little flexible so it cant break too easy.

    regarding the eating racket maybe someone would sit like this picture waiting or watching an exciting game and forget that he is holding a dangerous racket to consume and accidentally eat it or something.

    Guys, let me ask you this. How much will you pay to have a experienced person to customize your racquet for you? ie, add lead tape and hide it inside of the frame? Mod the grip size up or down? Let's take a vote.
    I personally charge $20 for lead tape job and $25 for grip size mod. I want to make it so not too many people will ask for it.

    I don't really see the point that people are add lead tape to get head heavier racquet, are you guys comparing yourself with LinDan? Go back to the courts and enjoy your games with already well-made racquets.

    Great alternative, plus you get the protection factor.

    i say...just get a different racquet if you think its still too light. But for the few that think the at700 is still too head light...you could try using steel pellets taped down

    All of the maniacs here who added athletic tape, lead tape, etc to their AT700s to make their balance points 330+...
