Many players have experimented with additional weight added to their racquet yor years. You can try different methods from lead tape to other types of weight attached to the racquet in different areas.
The main thing to remember is the positioning of the weight. Try to keep the racquet balance point as close to center as possible. Another very important part to adding weight to your racquet is to build strength in your tennis muscles so that you can maximize the benefits of the heavier force of the racquet.
