The sides are not flat but slightly concave, well hence the width of the grommet strip felt a little short and unperfect fit. Well I have never handled a prestige mid racquet but I expect this is not the case. I assume the grommet channel (?) of the elite pro is slightly deeper than prestige, well at least that could explain it.

Anyways I wonder whether this has been the experience of people who have capped their racquets.
I capped a few of them. I usually pre-fill the gap with lead tape. It worked for me.
