    I called to order grommets for Boris Becker London Tour racquets and was told that it should be the same as Volkl Tour 10 Mid grommets. But the Volkl Tour 10 Mid grommets are discontinued and cannot be ordered. I have been checking the TW for BB London Tour grommets and they are never listed. Why no grommets for a rather new and current BB racquet? Where can I get these grommets?

    I'd like to know also because I've worn both of mine in just a few months.

    Just reviving this thread to see if anyone was ever successful in finding grommets for the London Tour.

    The grommets that fit the Boris Becker London Tour racquet are the same as the grommets for the Volkl Tour 10 racquet. These grommets are priced at $5.99 each. Included below is the link to the Volkl grommet page.

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/catpage-GROMVOLKL.html

    The particular grommets you are looking for will be in the right-hand column, towards the bottom of the page. These grommets will include the side and bottom grommet pieces, as well as the bumper guard.

    For the London Tour, these are the grommets. They are indeed the same for the Tour 10 Mid as corbind pointed out:

    Volkl Tour 10 Mid & Becker London Tour Grommet Mid 5.99

    Please note that these are on backorder until May. Sorry for the long delay.

    ae11,

    It looks like it will be back in stock around 5/11.

    Now that I got myself London Tour, I'm worried about spare grommets/bumperguard. Will they be available, ever? :/

    maxpotapov,

    Unfortunately, it looks like their in stock date got pushed back to the end of July.

    UPDATE:

    I did some research and I called Volkl about the recent lack of grommets for the London Tour. They told me that they are back ordered and won't be available until mid-October. They also told me that the possibility of more stock of these frames won't be available until the same time. :eek:
