    Since I'm not actually selling this, I assume it can be posted here.

    Head Composite Master. This was going to be a "project racquet" for me, but I have too many projects. Probably a 5.0/5.5 out of 10. Scrapes and chips, but nothing beyond paint damage. Of course, the grommets literally disintegrated when I removed the strings. #1 Pallets.

    Just pay shipping and it is yours. I love this vintage of racquets and I'm hoping someone else will too.

    I did a grommet retrofit on a graphite master before. Came out very nice. This thread reminded me that I also have a composite master that needs new grommets.

    I should do this for an old white F200 I have at home where some grommets have actually stuck inside the racquet and are hell to get out.

    I wished modern rackets would return to this kind of BOXEY box beam shape, with the squared-off edges and less of the semi-wide >19mm beams.

    Okay, I'll throw a McEnroe Master II into the box also. Similar condition, plenty of chips, but no big issues. Strung, with serviceable grommets. It looks like these .

    Last chance. I am trying to become a little more focused in my collecting.

    I think someone should take up your offer. I'd love to but I'm currently saving.

    You can retrofit a graphite master? I have had one sitting in my closet for years because I could not pull it off. How the heck did you do it?

    i used the grommet set for a LM Rad OS which is also an 18x19 pattern. i had to cut the strip at a few places since the LM Rad OS is 107 sq in while the Graphite Master is 103 sq in. i had to use a few Fittex grommets for the 5 & 7 o'clock position where the LM grommets weren't long enough to extend all the way through the beam of the Graphite Master.

    Ok cool..thats probably why I gave up..I could not fit the grommets and did not approach it like you did. Can't lie, it does not sound easy..how does that stick play for you? It has been so long since mine was operational I forgot.

    it wasn't hard, but it did take some patience and time.

    plays very solid like alot of sticks from that era.
