Alright, so I was looking at the customer reviews of the babolat Pure Drive +, and I found that Andy Roddick had wrote one. Here it is:

Comments: Hey...I just wanted to say that the Babolat Pure Drive Plus Team is a great racquet for people who want more zip on their serve and more pace and depth on their forehand. As an ATP pro, I just wanted to say it works great. I have lead tape all around the frame of my racquet cause it gives it a head-heavy feel. I recommend this racquet to every level player!

Anyway, the Pure Drive is a great racquet and I also recommend it ;)

QUESTION re:lead tape. Do any of u guys use it? Do u place it anywhere on the frame or in specific spots to enhance the sweet spot?

One of my raquets is a little light for my liking.

You usually place lead tape inside of the head of the racquet, at the top. It doesnt really enhance the sweet spot, but the head heaviness gives you a solid feel. :)

Don't put too much lead tape on at once, or you'll wreak havoc with your elbow!! Trust me, I know. Add a little bit, try it out. Then work down the side of the frame little by little until you find the right level.
