    If I'm replacing old gromets, how much up should I go for the first stringing to set up the new ones (1 lbs ?).
    Also for the newer used racquet to match the existing racquets. Thanks.

    Doesn't make much sense to me. I mean, unless you have some kind of special grommets I've never seen before. Most grommets set well enough the first time around.
