    I'm looking for a set of grommets to fit an original Wilson Hammer 6.2 95 skunk. I've found a few sets that claim to fit the standard and stretch models on the 'bay, but saw something on TW that is the crux of my question:

    Do the Wilson Hammer 4.0 95 grommets fit the Hammer 6.2 95? TW sells them directly and would make picking up a set a little more desirable for me. I'm not sure if all the Hammer 95 racquets had the same pattern/fit on the grommets though.

    Side question...Will the new Wilson BLX butt caps fit their old racquets? The handle shape feels the same to me.

    4.0 skips 8,10 TH vs 6.2 skips 7,9 TH. Strongly suspect the grommets are not inter-changeable.

    The 4.0 is 18x20. The 6.2 95 varies between 16x18 (orig) or 16x20 (stretch) depending on model. Just based on the string patterns, they will not cross fit.

    Query the seller on the Bayy or check with 10s Men ace. Good luck finding your grommets.

    Awesome info, thanks. I'll ping the seller on the 'bay and see if they are the stretch or regular as I have a standard length 95.

    Anybody ever dealt with the aforementioned vendor? The Circa-1995 website doesn't exactly inspire purchasing confidence.

    Apparently he has lots of stuff in stock but at high prices. I tried to buy a set of grommets for a Secret 04 but the $79.95 price tag set me off.
