    while i was looking for some used rackets, i finally bought an apd....
    hopeless, it was junior....i thought "not a big deal....just applying lead tape
    and that's it...."....but i forgot about the size....

    enlarged....) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    The junior edition is not made of the same materials as the real one. Head size different and length is different. Sure you can increase the length but its probably not worth it.

    I'm not even gonna ask why. Just get yourself an adult racquet ASAP.

    Hahah I remember years back a guy did the same thing. The salesman talked him into buying the Junior while saying it was the Adult. :p

    or... you could search.
    or you could figure it out.
    You cut wood and attach it on the end, under the butt cap. Regrip. Careful though.
