I've used this racquet a lot since 1988. I don't like the weight and feel with the full CAP; I'd recommend using the original grommet set if it's servicable, and then later, when it isn't, trimming down a MG Prestige Mid CAP to the same size as the original white Elite Pro item. The frame is molded so that it's really designed to fit a partial CAP - you'll notice a notch-out for it if you look carefully.

Enjoy it; it's a superlative frame, incorporating the feel of the PT630, the solidity and precision of the original Prestige Pro, but with increased manoeuverability (with a partial CAP, that is). Why HEAD has refused to make anything approaching this (or maybe even surpassing this) performance in a midsize package in the ensuing 25 years is a huge mystery. Or, perhaps, a triumph of marketing over engineering.
