View Full Version : Babolat woofer...Anyone got rid of ?

04-09-2006, 07:59 PM
I liked the original nonwoofer pure drive much better but I hear that without high string tension there is no way to change grommets or in any way delete the woofer system on the new PD racquets. Anyone?

i think the only way (aside from increasing tension past 60 lbs) is to find the old grommet set (w/o woffer). maybe cutting those out and just using single grommets there?

would be nice but i think the old grommets are pretty hard to find

i don't know...maybe hard to find a replacement. try writing babolat maybe?

Thanks for the replies.

A local shop manager told me the woofer system racquets had curved grommet holes and no other grommet strips will work.

Anyone know for sure? I will try to check with babolat.

Exactly. You will NOT find another grommet kit to fit a Pure Drive Woofer frame. IT's the way they are drilled. Even when using a Fittex grommet, it doesn't really sit well in ther ebecause of the way they are drilled. Only choice, flog it and get something new, string tighter or drop me a line I have a few old style PUre Drives

Wow! Hi TM. Thanks. A bunch of people have been posting looking for old PD.
My purpose was to search before committing to the new RPD which I am trying and like.

TM what is your feeling on the new RPD? thanks.
