    So i just got back home with my 2 brand new rackets strung for the first time, with same string and tension, and weirdly the string bed in one of the rackets its vibrating more then the other...

    it makes like a high pitched noise, it actually its not pleasent.. even with the dampener in it it still makes the noise a bit, and offcourse more than the other one :p

    any explanation? is it the racket? is it the string? both are good quality and i wonder what it might be

    thanks

    Just guessing, but if these are new racquets with 1st time string jobs..check the grommets to see if they are seated correctly. 2 cents.

    i mean its hard to tell they look settled correctly but if they are not its by 1 milimmeter or less.. you think that can be the reason?
    wouldnt the stringer while pushing the strings on the string machine wouldnt that be enought to settle the grommets ?

    how can i seat the grommets correctly? can there be other explanation?
    even the strings are from the same reel (tecnifibre razor)so its impossible that the string is the problem

    Are you sure there is not a miss weave in one frame? Hold the racket so you can look at an angle over the stringbed diagonally. It there is a miss weave it will stick out like a soar thumb.

    i went out playing with them today.. despite the vibration they are defintely both playable , i even enjoyed the one that vibrates the most a little bit:p
    i guess maybe ill wait for the next stringing and see if it happens again... i take more or less 6 hours of playing to break the string so that would not be far from today

    Brand new grommets don't always seat into the groove completely the 1st time IME. If a string is slightly touching the frame, the vibration is different than if the string was vibrating thru the grommet tube. Normally the 2nd string job will seat the grommet strip completely as it will have had time to conform to the shape of the frame.

    I string a decent amount of rackets and those aero pros are made pretty cheaply. Not sure why Babolat doesn't spend a little more to manufacture them.

    thanks guys for the help:)

    il wait esgee48 :p what you are saying makes all the logic


    rjtennis, they feel somehow kinda cheap you are correct ( the 2013 even worse than 2010) but for playing you cant go wrong, i cannot find a better racket nowadays. it is the beast, and ive tried a lot of them :p
