When i hit with my radical it seems to have a rattling sound. The only reason i can see why is that i cut 3 of the grommets off and flipped them around because they were torn. Could this be the cause?

could be that, could be some clay, or you could have some loose graphite in there

it could be that. it might be loose lead tape if you have any on there. that happens to me sometimes.

Also, i can't hear it when i shake the racquet just when i hit with it.

Sounds like a piece of something broke and now is moving around inside, try taking the buttcap off and letting it fall out

sounds like it could be a loose grommet piece from your description

That's what I was initially thinking as well.

Be careful of baby rattle snakes. Sometimes they take shelter in racquets.

if you put weight in the handle, then thats obvious. If its still stock condition, not sure, prolly the grommets
