    i actually find that my 3ug4 at700 is a bit too light still, just maybe 1or 2 grams more will be good.
    But im far too lazy to add stuff on to it

    on lighter rackets, even electrics tape works as it adds less weight and moves the BP more

    Electric tapes are not as good as lead tape, because electric tape is light and you will need more of it. This will mean more drag on the racquet when you swing it. The best is to put the desired weight of hmg and put it at the 12 o'clock, spread over not more than 1 inch long, and then put it into the mold. The plant will probably not do this for you for a few racquets. So the next practical way is to use lead tape at the 12 o'clock. The weight of the lead tape should be from 0.5g to 1g, no more. Also forget about putting lead tape inside the frame-it cannot be done. There is a bladder inside the frame hollow and both the bladder and grommets get in the way.

    I just finished putting on lead tape on my Woven 7. The BP went from 298mm to 318mm so i am happy but was expecting more. Will post a picture later.

    You don't have to cut the string. You apply it to the frame of the racket. here is a pic of my AT150 with lead tape on the top of the frame.

    If you find the racket to be too light in overall weight then it's better to go with a high weight category.

    Adding lead tape to the frame will make the racket more heavy head so producing power will be easier.
    Yes you can add lead tape even if the racket is already heavy head to make it even more heavy head.

    lead tape is like sticky tape, you can put it and and pull it off with no damage to the racket. Here is a picture of the lead tape I use but 1/4" is a bit small so 3/8" is my ideal size.

    The first time i apply lead tape i had a bit of problems but after a few tries there was no problem.

    if you buy them in bulk(roll) it will be much cheaper than buying a packet. Don't bother going with brand because all lead tape are the same.

    Lead tape is mainly used for changing the BP of the racket.
