The brittle grommets are a huge issue on the Head sticks. In fact the Special Edition i have is a rare one w/ solid grommets.
The upper hoop response on the TXE feels better than any frame I've hit with - including the Special Edition I am currently grooving with... intrigued to slowly go through the head line of sticks up to the prestige (so recommendations appreciated)... although I am curious about the feel of an 89.5 compared to the 81.1 ... also inching to hit with twaran in a Head stick at some point
will let you know! Cheers, S
