in the picture u see roger federer racket at the throat. i want to customize my racket just like his... People told me to use leather grip, but how? Video, Pictures, advise will be very helpful
Power pads have been discussed ad nauseum on these boards - used to be we used them on all string jobs with wood frames...today mainly on gut string jobs on the mains. Totally useless if you are using poly or similar stiff strings. Best way is to take the left over of a leather grip and cut 1cm or so strips - fold in half and then place it under the main strings and the grommets under holes at 1-2, 3-4, 5-6. used to spend extra time in the shop making them for years.......hardly used today - again unless you're using gut it's silly in today's frames.
