    Dropped my new head stick straight down onto the hard court. Luckily my grip wasn't affected or anything. The racquet was dropped straight down and the butt cap took most of the damage. The blue is from the court. Anyway I can remove it? I know it's small so if you guys recommend to just leave it.. I may. I usually use rubbing alcohol to clean marks but I'm not sure if it will work in this situation.

    Opinions welcome

    Sometimes you can rub a spot like that with a pink rubber eraser and it will remove the discoloration.

    Gives it character. After a few weeks you'll be treating that brand new racket like any other stick. Got to dig out those low volleys you know.

    I have no idea why something like that would bother you. However, you might want to try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. They are available at most super markets for around $4.

    When my buttcap gets dirty, I take a bath.

    OP- I don't know why that would bother you, but like an earlier poster said you won't mind it soon...
