    Does anyone know any strategies for getting lead out of a racket when the led is stuck literally inside the throat of the racket besides sawing off the handle completely?

    Any input would be appreciated asap

    if it helps anyone come up with an answer, the lead strips are stuck in a Babolat APD (non-cortex)

    shoving something up there to randomly fish the lead out? like straightened out coat hangers?

    Please dont get the coathanger stuck in there too. I mean, it would be really sad, and really funny. But more sad.

    Remove strings and grommets (you will almost certainly need a new grommet set) and come at it from above. Perhaps use a thin plumbing snake with the tip removed, it would work better than a clothes hanger.
