If you put the lead on a stock Head IG Speed Pro, it may throw it off considerably. You need to counterbalance whatever you put in large amounts in the hoop, with a possibly similar amount in the handle. There is a great possibility there is silicone injected in the handle, or lead placed on top of the pallet.
I am balancing a racquet right now, using this website as a guide:
Look up your racquet's specs, and put them into the website calculator. Then add data in each row as to how many increments of lead you've put positionally on the racquet. Remember, the more you put towards the tip, the greater the swingweight. But the more you put towards the buttcap, the more headlight you make it. Good luck!
Yeah, I had two of those Radical twin tube Zebras. The CAP grommet made it too heavy for me already, so I trimmed it down with a razor blade and played with it bumperless. It had that really nice low flex, which is like the Liquidmetal Prestige. And that racquet would clobber the ball still.
Just was too heavy in the long run. Nole's got a strong flexible arm. My max swingweight is 340. Then my swing speed drops dramatically.
That's why I was really impressed with both the IG Radical MP and Radical OS. I can have that nice flexy feel but at a swingweight I can use. Your Vantage BC20 is very hard to find here in the U.S. stores. I remember you showing me stuff on it.
Ah, that FabFed thread is just like you said, everyone wanting to maul someone's gem to pieces. They're lucky even to set eyes on the damn thing.
