My friend is complaining about his grip digging into his hand cuz he holds it way towards teh end of the handle. He wants to make the buttcap smaller.

Is it possible to fit the Prince 4 1/8 buttcap into a Prince 4 1/4 grip without haveing to shave the buttom part of the handle?

what is his racquet? I use a Wilson and I know they have 2 types of buttcaps (one is more rounded on the edeges..the old red trap door one).

As far as I know, you should not use an incorrect size..not sure if it will even fit. Maybe filing it down is the only option.

He uses a Prince Speedport Pro White...

I told him that handle wont even fit into the smaller buttcap...

is there another solution to his problem? i suggested wraping the overgrip to cover the edges as well but he said it still was diggin into his hand

Maybe he could take it to a local pro shop (tennis center, club, etc.). They may be able to offer advice or a fix to the problem.

sand the corners/edges to round off the base of the buttcap
