    Question Excess grip "ring"

    Hi all,

    would like to seek an answer on my curiosity. Ive seen a video showing that there are an "excess ring" (i might say, coz i dunno whats that item called) right the end of the wood handle. Can actually see it when the original grip were removed. As of what i heard, that "ring" might protect your racket to slip when you dive..

    Q : 1. What exactly that item called.?
    2. Can anyone propose me a retailer/ shop that can offer me that "ring".?

    P/s: that "ring" will make your grip looks bigger at the bottom of your racket..

    Hope you can get an idea / picture on what im trying to ask here.. Hehehe..

    No, thats a single part. Look like "ring" due to it bigger than the wood handle

    Butt cap should look like that when viewed from the side. Look at number 32 in this picture

    he says in the video he just put more grip over the overgrip, he says he uses YONEX AC-102, fairly cheap grip,
