    Hello!

    This summer I bought a RM1/Yonex EZONE DR Feel Mid+ with a (1/8) grip for my daughter. She has somehow managed to lose the butt cap to this racquet, and when I looked online for a replacement Yonex Sony Smart Sensor Butt Capshere:

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Yonex_Sony_Smart_Sensor_Butt_Caps/descpageYONEX-YSSBC.html

    all I get are 3/8, 1/2, and 5/8 sizes. Which was one of these will fit the DR Feel racquet? I am ready to buy one as soon as I know which one will fit in her racquet.

    Thank you in advance.

    Very Truly Yours,
    Richard

    Richard,

    You would need the 1/8 size to fit your daughter's racquet and we are currently sold out of that butt cap. I am going to need to follow up with our hard goods buyer as that size is marked discontinued in our system. I should be able to get you an ETA by tomorrow.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW

    Hi Richard,

    Our hard goods buyer has been out the last couple days so I have reached out to our Yonex rep and am awaiting a reply. I will update you here as soon as I hear back.

    Thanks,

    Rich,

    I have now sent another email and a phone call to our Yonex rep. I also have had two other people contact him. We have still not heard anything back at this time. I am going to keep trying.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW

    Has there been any update on this? I'm actually looking to buy some of these buttcaps as well. Not a big fan of the new trap door style ones because they add 1/8" of length.
