I've been looking for them, too. Please let me know if you find any. More importantly, if you know anyone who wants to sell any of the frames, I've been trying to find them for ages. Much appreciated!

I have a couple of bumper guards (4) only. As for the bottom grommet, the one with the soft grommet on it. That I don't have, but this is what I did with one of my friend's RD Power 10. I bought her the RQ iS grommet and made some modification to it and it worked. I used a razor blade and cut it right in the middle. Then I trimmed it bit by bit and that made it fit perfectly.

You can also buy individual grommets for the bottom holes, and power pad the spaces between them. It produces a pretty similar effect to the original piece.

If I can remember it correctly, I think it was for a 95 sq inch racquet. Is that what you have?

Saw that. Unfortunately, it's the 95, and I'm looking for the 105, as mentioned above. Thanks much, though. If you do see/hear about a 105, please pass on the info!

Try calling Yonex directly. They have a headqurter somewhere in California. That's what i did and that's how I got my head guard. i didn't ask for the 105, so I don't know if they still have those left.

Already talked to them many times (I got my original frames from them via sponsorship). They have essentially nothing left. They sent me the last of their backstock of the throat pieces about a year ago, and they all crumbled en route.
