    I currently own a Head Flexpoint Radical Midplus racket. My buttcap on my racket has gotten worn own so the black logo part of the buttcap has a tendency to "pop" off. I just received a replacement buttcap for my racket, but i do not know how to take out the old to replace it with the new. Could somebody please help me on my issue?

    It's not that difficult. It's just a matter of unwrapping your grip to get access to the buttcap, removing staples that hold the butt cap in place (use a small flat blade screwdriver and needle nose pliers to nudge them out), popping on the new butt cap, and stapling the new one in place. If you don't have a proper staple gun, if you were careful in removing the original staples, you can often just reuse them and tap them gently in place with a small hammer. After that, it's just a matter of rewrapping your original grip back on.

    Here are some grip wrapping instructions from TW:

    McLee gave some good advice. That is how my Volkls work. Also, try posting on the racquets forum. There are a ton of guys that know their stuff about racquets.
