    Are the cap grommets for the midsize (600 sq. inch) Head Prestige racquets (PC600, i.Prestige mid, LM Prestige mid) interchangeable?

    Is there any weight difference between them?

    Thanks

    You're lucky, I just did it!
    I have a couple of Prestige Pro Mid, with the CAP grommets of the Classic model (the brown grommets).
    I replaced them with the iPrestige CAP grommets (black grommets), and they fit pretty well.
    The difference is 5 grams in weight (the new ones are lighter). This caused a shift of almost 1 cm more headlight, and a big difference in the swingweight, from 333 to 320.

    I've been looking for replacement CAP grommets for my 2 PC600s. pspcpog, are you located in America? And if so, can you tell me from where you bought the grommets?

    Thanks,

    TW doesn't have Classic grommets anymore. Only iPrestige or LM.

    I just bought one for my Prestige Tour 600 here in Switzerland (the brown ones), but I think this was the last one in stock (www.mrs-tennis.ch)...

    Are you sure the iPrestige mid grommets are going to fit my Prestige Classic 600 Mid racquets? I ordered a few and asked TW about it and they said, "Our buyer thinks they may not fit your racquet."

    I just ordered again... here in Switzerland the original classic/tour CAP grommets are still avaiable (expensive CHF 15.- or around US$ 11) .
