    To my knowledge there were only two sizes. I saw a gray one that fit everything except the tour, and then an orange one that fit the tour.

    You have a blue one, so... I dunno. Try it. :D

    Just learned something today. I assumed the boomerang tool(s) was just one size and the different color names were just coloful names to match the racquet. I did not realize there are two different sizes.

    i've heard that if you use the tip on a sharpie, it can be done...i haven't tried it on my tours yet, as last time i just borrowed my coach's boomerang tool to string mine, and that was 2 weeks ago..

    however...how DO you place the sharpie cap in the grommet? from the outside, pointing it inwards? or vice versa. i'm guessing just like with the tool, but an explanation from someone would be great.

    I've tried using a sharpie cap on a tour and it didn't work. I tried from the outside in like the boomerang.

    Nah, it didn't fit in enough to do the job either way. I think it would work with the larger O3s, though. (just from the looks of it.)

    Good luck. The ironic thing about not being able to find one, is that we all string and need one, but there are thousands lying in the drawers of tennis players that bought one, got it for free in their cover and just discarded it. So, there are tons for the taking, but none in the right hands.

    I called Prince and they shipped me one for my Speedport Black (the guy said it was specifically for the Speedports), but it doesn't fit.
