Why do some Yonex racquets have very long grommets on the throat
RDS001 MID
RDS001 MP
RDS002
RDS003
etc...

and some Yonex have short grommets at the throat
RDS002 Tour
RQis1 Tour
RQS11
RQ7
etc...

The difference b/w RDS002 and RDS002Tour and RDS001MP and RDS002Tour are the weirdest to me...
The 002s are similar construction (if different weights and beam thicknesses)
and the 001mp vs 002Tour are very close in specs but grommets very different.

What is the purpose of the long grommets and what is the reasoning when it comes to putting short or long ones in their frame designs????
Thx!
