    Hi folks,
    I have a question. If I look up and purchase new grommet set to replace my existing, broken one, does it come with a thick, bumper guard plastic piece? The one that scratches the most. Or that's a separate piece to order?

    Yes, it comes with all the woofer grommets along with the bumper guard.

    thank you, I wanna make my order worthwhile with shipping cost by adding another set for PDGT, but I do not see it it TW listing. Do you it (replacement pdgt grommet) exist?

    Typing on the phone, but all generation pure drives and aeropro drives fit. Also, pure drives fit aerodrives and vice versa. Even the pure drive lite grommets fit (the top grommets at least havent needed the side grommets) but are just white.

    pure drive grommet in an aeropro drive cortex

    Since I didn't have the right one on hand, I tried putting in an older pure drive grommet (the one before the cortex) into an aeropro drive cortex, and the bumperguard was too short. I was committed at the point where I knew for sure. At least the last 3 holes on each side needed to be elongated a tiny bit (1/2 a hole width?), so that's what I did with the side of a drill bit. The grommet strip at the top stretched ok with some coaxing.

    Bah, never again... Oh well. It worked.

    Since then I have bought like 5 sets of grommets, apd and pdgt.

    I found that any Aeropro drive's grommet fits any aeropro drive in cortex/gt/lite/even jr versions. Not sure about original as I have not tried. PD and APD's grommets do not fit each other.

    Rackets feel very cool and shiny everytime I put on a new set of gromment, bumper guard. Bab gromments and bumper guards are on the cheap side or something cuz they break easily. I never drop my frames though.
