Will this work?

I have been using a Prince midplus with a 10.6oz weight and have had no problems with my elbow. I just used a Prince O3 Citron and loved it more, but my elbow started to hurt about 3 times afterplaying with it, if i get lead tape added to it. do you think that will help my elbow not hurt?

The O3 Citron is a little lighter than your Prince midplus (10.1 strung vs 10.6 oz like you mentioned), so I don't know if racket weight is a factor on your TE or not. But I don't know what the balance is on your Prince midplus there because you didn't say what model it is. Beside a heavier racket, head light balance is also supposed to help with TE.

So if I were you and want to add lead to the Citron, I'd add the lead to the handle instead of the head. A heavier and more head light racket should help TE in general, assuming there's no problem with your technique in the first place.

Go for the O3 Citron.
Add some lead tape into the handle and you'll be fine.
