Does anyone know how to remove the flared grommets on puma rackets ? If so can you advise me ?
Thank you
Removing is easy if you don't want to re-use them. Really sharp angle cutter/nippy cutter from Radio Shack placed flush against the frame and under the grommet flare. Snip away and Bob's your uncle!

If you do not plan to TRY and reuse them, hit the flare with a heat gun or hair dryer. When the plastic is soft, you can pull it out from the strip side. If you intend to reuse the strips, just be really careful pulling. Replace damaged grommet tubes with FITTEX tobes of the nearest smaller size since if you use larger, they may not go thru the holes in the frame.

If you have a new set of grommets, heat them up with the heat gun or in a pot of warm water to make them pliable. Wipe down the channels with a little polish on a paper towel. Start at one end and GENTLY seat the tubes into the holes. Guide from the inside with an awl. DO not force. There are YT videos on doing this.

Here is one that is in the forum. Look down the list.
