    Perhaps this belongs in the classic racquet section but where can I find the appropriate grommets for this frame? I have the 1 stripe Tour 90 version and I'm not entirely sure if the POG mid grommets will fit my frame... Any suggestions?

    They should unless something has changed other than the graphics.

    The same grommets fit all POG 90s. Prince sometimes refers to them as Prince Graphite MPs.

    I bought a beat up 1 striper about a year and a half ago and replaced the grommets with the current POG ones. They fit perfectly.

    I think that may be an issue though. I have the 90 version. I'm under the impression that the Mid is a 93... are they actually one and the same?

    They are the same, Prince marketed the POG mid as the Series 90, and the OS (107si) as the series 110 a long time ago. The mold AFAIK has never changed. I'm not so sure about the layup, though. The newer graphites feel stiffer, and I'm not convinced it's only material fatigue.
