Comments: The Tourna Lead Tape works great for precision weight addition around my racquet. However, when I want to concentrate at a specific point I find the Tourna Power Strips work better. They put more mass in a smaller area. Both items are easy to work with and stay on well.

Comments: can you put lead tape underneath the overgrip on the tennis racket?

Comments: TW is correct! Weighed a 36" piece on a precision balance beam scale. 9 grams exactly, making a 4 inch piece-- 1 gram-- or .25g per inch.

Comments: I have weighed the lead tape and 4" weighs 1 gram, not half a gram. TW confirms this at 0.25gr per inch. The lead tape sticks well on my Wilson nCode-n6 and it won't come off.

Comments: I think 1" of tape is .25 grams as TW states. I weighed a roll and did the math - it comes out very close to .25G per inch - just a little over with the backing still on the tape. It stays on forever if you take the slick side of the backing and rub it on to the frame to get out air and wrinkles. It's been on my rackets for 4+ months without a problem.

Comments: I think the weight on the back of the pack is correct. If they are correct, I have added about 1/4 ounce to my racquet, and my racquet would now be about 10 3/4 ounces. If TW's description is correct (1 inch = .25 grams), I would have added about 1/2 ounces to my racquet, and the racquet would weigh about 11 1/4 ounces. (TW's weight estimate is double that of Unique.) My racquet feels like it is under 11 ounces after adding the lead tape. I can tell by comparing it to other racquets I have. Therefore I think Unique's weight description is correct. PS- I don't think you need vinyl tape. The lead tape does not come off.

Comments: Great stuff. The actual weight is what's described on TW, not on the back of the pack. The edges can start coming off after a few hours but if you invest in the rolls of vinyl tape they sell on TW, just tape over the lead and give em a blow-dry for good measure. It'll stay on forever and you can protect yourself from lead poisoning, as the state of California believes (or so it says on the back of the packet).
