    I'm thinking about acquiring an older Prestige 600 (one of the green ones) but I don't know a thing about sources for replacement parts. This one probably needs a new bumper guard and maybe grommets as well and certainly a new butt cap.

    But there are no cracks, no chips, no exposed anything...

    So here's my question for the board: are these parts readily available, or is it more a case of scrounging new old/deadstock? And two, are these older racquets worth the trouble.

    hit me up here or if you have parts suggestions/experiences that you'd care to share, you can email me directly at kistulentz@gmail.com.

    Thanks,
    steve

    Usually the grommets of the HEAD rackets are exchangable as long as the head size is the same. Many on this forum put capped grommets from new models on classic frames.
    I'm not 100% certain but many on this forum can tell you exactly which grommets will fit. They should be readily available.

    For grommets use MG/YT Prestige Mid CAP Grommets.
