Hey TW staff! could someone let me know if the Microgel Prestige MID grommets will fit the Liquidmetal Prestige MID? and if so, is there a weight difference between the two? Thank you, I have been trying to find an answer by way of search but have found nothing, would be hugely appreciated! :)

thing is id rather order from here because I need a bunch of other stuff and would like to group them in without dealing with the bay's long shipping and buying process...

I assume that CAPs are CAPs 0.o

Since the mids have the same headsize and string pattern i would assume soooooo

Microgel CAPS are differ from other Head CAPS and vice versa. Different codes and the sticks are drilled differently. A TK57 CAP will not fit on the new Microgels.

I have not tried the Microgel CAPs in a different Prestige, but know the original through Liquidmetal are all interchangeable. The i.Prestige CAPs are shorter and the FP Prestige CAPS have the the cap trimmed around the Flexpoint area, but the drill patterns were all the same.

Hey Chris would a CAP grommet from a LM Prestige MP fit on a Radical MP?

There's a thread on here somewhere with CAPs on an LM Radical MP, so yes, it is possible. I believe the grommets come up a little short around 7T and 8T, but it works. You could always tube the section or use individual grommets if you're using gut or a sensitive multi.

Ok I have played with these for about a week now and they are perfect! so I think it is safe to say that the MG mids fit into the LMP mids...

I don't know why they wouldn't. From my understanding:

Prestige Pro>Prestige Pro 600>Prestige Tour>Prestige Classic 600>LM Prestige Mid>FXP Prestige Mid>Microgel Prestige Mid are come from the exact same mold (with the exception of those funky things on the FXP).
