    Hi, I was wondering if this was possible?

    I accidentally dropped my racquet while serving today, though thankfully it didn't crack, it seemed to sustain some scratches in the buttcap area. Now whenever I grip near the end of my racquet it feels kinda rough and I would like to replace the buttcap.

    I saw this (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage-WBLX61B.html) on the TT website, and I was wondering how do I remove the existing buttcap in order to fit the new one in?

    Anyone has any idea?

    1. remove grip
    2. remove staples in butt cap
    3. remove butt cap
    4. insert new butt cap onto frame
    5. staple butt cap
    6. regrip


    of course, you could simply take some fine sand paper and buff the rough areas of your existing butt cap.

    What do I use to staple the new butt cap and how do I remove the existing butt cap? The staples used seem to be something very different from the staple gun I have!
