    I do not have that racquet but my solution was to go my local autoparts store and try to match the paint. That paint is a high quality lacquer(I think). I use a toothpick to apply or a very very fine brush. Always has worked for me.

    I pick up paint from model building/hobby stores. Their paints are normally enamel. While there, also pick up a small paint brush used for models. Once dry, buff to remove any unsightly brush strokes. :twisted:

    It's a tennis racquet, not a piece of art :)
