    Smile Heavy tape or an alternative

    Hello everyone,

    I would make my racquet more head-light.
    For that, I would like to buy a heavy tape and adhesive if possible. But I do not know what exists as tape, can you advise me? Also, I do not like grip too thick but I can obviously remove the original grip and replaced with heavy tape.

    I would also like you to give me other ways to make a racquet more head-light.

    Thank you in advance.

    Only 2 ways:

    1. Remove end cap. Should be a hole in the handle. Stuff lead pieces in there.

    2. Sand away the paint from the racket head!
