Yonex throat grommets... short vs long ???

Discussion in 'Racquets' started by Vitaly Evchenkov, Mar 25, 2008.

  1. Why do some Yonex racquets have very long grommets on the throat
    RDS001 MID
    RDS001 MP
    RDS002
    RDS003
    etc...

    and some Yonex have short grommets at the throat
    RDS002 Tour
    RQis1 Tour
    RQS11
    RQ7
    etc...

    The difference b/w RDS002 and RDS002Tour and RDS001MP and RDS002Tour are the weirdest to me...
    The 002s are similar construction (if different weights and beam thicknesses)
    and the 001mp vs 002Tour are very close in specs but grommets very different.

    What is the purpose of the long grommets and what is the reasoning when it comes to putting short or long ones in their frame designs????
    Thx!
