Does anyone know where I can get the rubber "hood" that goes on the top of the handle?

The frame is an Austrian Prestige Tour 300 mid.

Sorry son, but you don't know what your talking about. PSP2 is talking about the rubber handle cover which was unique to Head racquets with the suspension handle, not a plastic replacement grip. Sorry PS, but I wouldn't have a clue as to were you could obtain that part and I would doubt if they would be available from Head considering those racquets have long been discontinued.

The rubber 'hood' was attached to a plastic 'collar'.
Both were brown.
The 'hood' pulled down over the top of the grip to hold it in place like the removable small round rubber things that come with most frames today.

The entire "hood" was rubber. It dry-rotted and split in half, therefore falling off the handle. I guess I need to find a broken Prestige Tour and go from there.

That would probably be the only way, good luck.

I used a clear rubber caulk to fill in the area for a player.

Hi,

Post a message in the Wanted Section for this item or for broken Prestige frames. If you could get a phone # for Safin that would yield you a few :-) Serious... post a message. I am sure someone has a cracked Prestige they would be willing to send ya.

Good luck..

I'm not sure if this works, but if you can find one of the old Prestige Classic collars it may fit, minus the rubber hood.
