    OK. Help me out here guys. What grommets do I need to cap an old Head Comp Pro (The white one). Its got an 89.5 head size.

    Also....where are you folks buying these capped grommets from. I dont see any grommets here at TW that are cap grommets.

    I should say I am in the USA (not sure if this is a TWS Europe thing).

    And one more thing.....do any of these cap grommets fit the old Head composite pro in the 102" head size.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can buy the CAPS grommets on TW US. They don't just say 'CAPS' on TW. The Microgel/Youtek Prestige Mid grommets are exactly the ones.

    There are no CAPS for 102 sq.in but the Prestige Team grommets on TW fits. It is not an exact fit though (especially at the throat) and needs some effort.

    I can't quite remember. No cuttings etc just a bit of forcing here and there and there are parts that won't go in completely IIRC. But you will be fine as you're familiar with racquet work!:)

    I capped 2 of my Head Comp Pro (mid) with Microgel Prestige mid grommets.
