    Do they fit?
    I recently got my hands on an i.Prestige MP(Made in Austria).The racquet hits beautifully but the weight is a little too much for me.It is close to 330 unstrung,while I am comfortable with max 320 gms.
    The swingweight also feel very high(for me).Although I do not have facility to measure but from comparative observation I feel it is 330ish.
    I have a spare set of MG Radical MP grommet,which I guess would be 8-10 gms lighter than i.Prestige.Would they fit in an i.Prestige?
    If yes, how much will the swingweight reduce?
    I do not want to trim original grommets.
    Thanks in advance to all the experts.

    yeah afaik 18x20 MP should interchange between Rad & Prestige,
    can't hurt to try

    don't think it'll reduce swingweight significantly though.
    I usually go the other way (capping Rads)

    I have tried to unCAP IG Prestige MP and have been almost successful,I say almost because throat part of MG Rad MP is little bigger than that of IGPMP.
    but i.Prestige is pretty old model so I thought better to take advice from the gurus.
    I will anyway give it a try once current strings die or break.
    Any help regarding swingweight reduction is most welcome.
    Thanks.
