XTP Extended End Cap

XTP Extended End Cap


The XTP Extended Length Butt Cap is the latest in adapting your racket to a longer length, regardless of brand.


The standard length of most rackets is 27 inches, but many of the professional players have stretched rackets, making the length of their rackets 27.5 inches. Some of the racket manufacturers offer stretch versions of their rackets:


Head - MXG7
Wilson - Pro Staff Six.One Stretch Plus, Team 105XL and Hyper Five.Three
Prince - Graphite long body
Yonex - Pro RD
Babolat - Max Drive and Aero 112


The main advantages of longer rackets include more power to serves and increased range.

You can also increase the length of your racket now by simply removing the existing end cap and installing the XTP.
