    I have a used HPS 6.0 95. The frame's condition is just fine, but the grommets and headguard are in dire need of replacement.

    I was told that the Wilson PS95 6.0 grommets will fit. Is this true

    Unfortunately, I don't have one to compare. I also looked at TW's site and couldn't find any for sale. :( Though TW does have in stock the grommets for the PS95 6.0.

    Does anyone know if these will fit the HPS? Thanks everyone.

    I don't think that the PS 6.0 95 grommets will work. The HPS frame is too thick. But I believe the Kfactor Six.One 95 grommets should work. If you call TW, they should be able to tell you.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I actually called TW in the past only to receive conflicting info. One of their reps informed me that a PS 6.0 95 would in fact work stating that these 2 frames were identical in that each used the same mould. The difference was the paintjob. Another rep wasn't quite sure but did not offer any alternatives.

    I guess the only way I'll find out is by ordering a grommet set for the PS6.0 95 from TW and trying it on my HPS 6.0 95.

    Thanks again for your input. I appreciate your help.

    I would tend to agree with the first TW rep. If the string pattern of your HPS 6.0 95 is the same (i.e., 16X18 ), the PS 6.0 95 grommets should work.

    Sounds logical. I'll find out the answer next week--just placed an order for some PS 6.0 95 grommets. I'll be sure to post the results.

    Thanks again for your help!

    No worries. Good luck with that.

    (Btw, how much were the grommets?)

    Thanks. TW lists them for $5 a set. Great deal.

    The HPS 6.1 is not a flat beam like the HPS 6.0. I have 4 HyperProStaff 6.0's in like new condition! -- and the 6.0 Pro Staff grommet sets DO fit that I believe. I have never had to replace mine--but I think I remember talking to someone at TW and I think they said they would fit. -- That racquet is unbelievable--eh?!
