    I contacted Wilson regarding the Hologram. They stated that is something they don't discuss w/the general public. I did not push the issue since I was ordering a free grommett set. Anyone know what the Hologram is for?

    There is unique information in there so Wilson knows if it is a racquet truely made by them, when, where, with what or whatever information they decide to put into the hologram.

    "Our voice mail is very secure. - Wilson"

    They've got to be kidding me! Do they really think that anybody is going to leave their credit card numbers to an answering machine?!

    Yes, you can get ONE free set of grommets from Wilson (as long as in stock). Any more are $4.95 a set. I don't think shipping is much. Much better price than I thought. You don't have to order more than one to get the free one. As long as you never ordered a free grommet set before (I believe they put your name in their computer record so you can't just call once a month to get free grommet sets). Hope this helps.

    Also, I never spoke to a voicemail system. Wait for an opertaor. they will answer. see the thread prior to this one and click on the link. there is an 800#. I had 3 buddies also call and they all spoke to a live person. They don't ask for a CC when you order your free grommet.

    The hologram is actually a surveilance device installed in all Wilson racquets by the KGB. Through America's tennis population, Russia is able to keep a steady eye on America. The cold war is not over yet.

    ps, trying to remove the hologram from your racquet will prove to be a fatal move as you will detonate the C4 packed inside the handle of the racquet. You've been warned.

    One of my customers removed one of those shiny things in front of me some time ago. I guess he must be some kind of sleeper agent to have executed that with such skill .:mrgreen: Now I feel really lucky as I could easily have been ncoded into little bits and pieces.

    Unfortunately as a result of fooling around with Wilson Holograms, some of us don't have hands!!!
