    TW offers two different butt caps for wilson racquets:

    Wilson Butt Cap (Red logo - trap door)
    Wilson Butt Cap (Solid Black no trap door)

    Do they exactly have the same shape? My wilson racket is grip size no.5 and I just like to have the 'end' a little smaller. I Does a butt cap no.4 work on a stick of no.5??

    Thanks.

    Yes, both have the same shape. To make the end of the handle smaller you will have to file it down. This is a tricky process and best left to skilled racquet customizers.
    A number 4 butt cap will not fit your number 5 handle without modification to the handle as it is designed for a smaller handle.
