nCode 90 Grommets?
 
These seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth. Neither version of BLX 90 grommets fit, much to my chagrin.

Any super secret resources that y'all can divulge? Help a brother out...

Call wilson they can tell you if another racket's grommet will fit. I would think TW could too.

bcart1991 02-18-2013 06:50 AM

Wilson was less than helpful. "Did you try any of the other 90-series grommets? They didn't work? Sorry, can't help you."

I've also been in touch with KlipperUSA, they're usually a good resource, but they got bad info from Wilson as that's who sent me the BLX2 version that didn't work.

Worst part is that I pulled the old grommets as soon as I got the first new ones in, and I really only needed the head guard. Looks like it may be time to start up bcart's Grommet Chop Shop...

The grommet game is ridiculous. I feel your pain. Good luck.

Too bad the racket companies don't treat consumers better in this regard, but we are suckers for their game I guess.

Racket manufacturers want you to buy new rackets not grommets.

yes, i know. at least HEAD does a decent job with this, i guess....

Irvin 02-18-2013 07:16 AM

Wilson has been making different rackets in almost identical molds for a long time. Truth be known it may be the same molds.

There is one place I usally go to, but they want $9.99 a grommet sometimes.

BTW the grommets you are looking for an nCode 6.1 Tour 90?

There are a few on fleabay. There is one shop in San Diego that seems to always have the grommets I need.

What's It Worth?
 
I think Jolly is trying to tell you he has some.

So, whaddaya got for him?

Seriously, my experience with Wilson so far confirms what Irvin said. There are many racquets they made using a common mold, so a grommet set may exist listed for a different 90 series that will work.

The n is different. The k and blx 1&2 are all the same drill pattern.

I found at least 4 grommet sets for the "nCode 6.1 Tour 90". The lowest one for $7.99.

bcart1991 02-18-2013 11:26 AM

Link me, because it's not coming up for me (I copy/pasted your search terms in the Tennis category). I've found a couple BLX sets and a PST 90 set.

That said, anyone need some BLX or BLX2 90 grommets?

bcart1991 02-19-2013 05:41 AM

The two sets that I have are:

PS6.1 90 BLX2
Product Code WRG 710200

6.1 Tour 90 BLX
Product Code WRG 700100

I was told that both of these would fit. Neither one fits.

You should try to call Wilson and see what the dimensions on the grommet and try Fittex Individual Grommets.
http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage-GROMMET.html

You could try that and see if that works for you.
Hope this helps.

This is what I got from a website. I think you need to look for BLX Tour 90 grommets.

pst90, n90 cannot accept grommets from k90/blx90/psblx90.

The sweetspot of pst90 and n90 is denser than the later generations.

You da Man! G7561 is the code we should be searching for.

BTW what's the difference between the G7561 and G7561G?
