    Today I recieved another ignite team racket that i bought online. However, the grommets look different from the one i already own. The one I have right now has holes to stick string throught the grommet while stringing but the one I recieved do not have any holes at all? I was just wondering is this normal and does it affect playability or string durability? Thanks!

    those are the Exo 3 technology grommets. They are a ***** to string but supposedly enlarge the sweetspot.

    looks like u got the one with port inserts while the one u had before was string inserts. check your order and see if they left it out

    Yes, they tone down the power of the stringbed a bit and provide a little more feel IMO.
