Picked up a very nice Head Prestige Tour Mid Plus yesterday -
Was very intriqued by the 18 x 19 pattern so I measured when I came home and it appears to be a 102"
According to my Stringers Digest - this frame is the Head Prestige Tour 300 MS -
Few questions here, handle appears to be 4 1/2 - The handle has a Brown cap at the top of the handle where there's a rubber part that appears to go over the grip - such as you wrap a new grip on it and where you would put the finishing tape at the top of the grip - this brown rubber part looks like it folds over the top of the finishing tape - the pallet also appears to have a solid Black wrap around it, don't know if this is standard for these racquets or is this is a heat shrink wrap over the original grip (I have no experience with shrink wraps???)

I'm thinking the Head FXP Pretige Team grommets would fit?

Any thoughts?

mostlikely yes... any 660 Prestige\radical 660 would fit, such as Rad Team, Prestige team or even the 660 tour classic retro from a few years ago...

my favourite size by far...

IF it's a 102, that should be listed as Prestige Tour 300 M(plus), yes? (as opposed to MS that would indicate 'Mid' , I believe).

When the racket was young, one would 'roll' up the cap sleeve at the top of the grip, install and tape the grip and then un-roll the cap to cover the top of the grip/tape. Unfortunately, we are hearing many stories of those decorative caps disintegrating in their old age. If you see any discoloration/lightening of the cap when you try to flex it, don't try to roll it up, lest you experience the catastrophic failure mentioned in other threads. Good luck!
