    I noticed one split grommet at 3 o'clock on my frame, probably due to a strong off-center shot.
    Is it a current problem on this frame or Wilson frame ? Never had this problem with a Pure Drive Cortex...
    Is this problem could generate string vibrations ? Is it necessary to change grommets now or can I wait a little longer ?
    Thanks

    I probably ran over a nail and my tire went flat on my Lexus RX330.

    I wonder if that particular model had issues with tires going flat. I posted on the Lexus talk board (similar to our Talk Tennis), and I got no response.

    Kidding aside, you shanked a ball. The grommet split. Your fault, not the frame / manufacturer.

    You can change your grommet out next time you have it strung.

    I think this is rather fragile because I don't spend my time doing off-center hits ! As already said, I never had this problem with my previous frames...
    And I don't intend to change the grommets each time I have to string it !
    Perhaps, few people checks regularly their grommets ?
