Every racket has a removable butt cap and the butt cap can be found at the bottom of your grip. Some butt caps are easy to snap off, while of them require a small screw drive to pry open. After you get the butt cap off, you must shake it until that graphite comes falling out. By the way don’t forget to put the butt cap back on before you play.
5.) Always replace worn down grips. If you don’t want to replace your grip yet, use an overgrip as it goes right over the original grip.
6.) For sure, no one wants to keep his racket on a radiator. Once a racket is exposed to a radiator, it will result into a serious damage to the strings and frame. Moreover, avoid storing your racket in extreme cold, as the extreme cold can make the racket brittle and unusable.
