i called warren bosworth the other day about my racket. i have an ncdoe tour 90, and i'd like to federerize the handle (i.e. make the pallet shorter). so i talked to warren about it and he gave me some advice, about how careful i need ot be and what not. the problem i come up with is this, which he didnt' fully answer. after having shortened the pallet, iw ill expose an inch or so of extra handle thats no longer covered by teh pallet. i wonder, is this part of the racket painted red as well? if not, how can i get it painted in such a manner that it smoothly blends in with the rest of my racket paint job. if such a procedure is doable, then doesn't it also stand to reason that i could fill in pain chips elsewhere? any help on this is appreciated.
