Hi all

I am stringing racquets for my tennis club and today one guy brought two of these Head Comp Pro racquets. Grommets are totally broken and would like to get new ones but problem is I dont know if there are suitable grommets available for this model. I do not know the accurate head size/model because there is no text of that. All I know it is 18x20 and around 600 head size, maybe slightly bigger. Can someone identify right model and maybe knows which current grommets could fit in? Thanks in advance:)

That’s the thinbeam Comp Pro TF 600 that was produced in Austria for part of 1989.
Unfortunately, grommets are no longer available, and there is no good equivalent option. This frame had a mold design that was shared with one other 1989 Head model (Graphite Pro TF, which was hoped to be a new frame for Boris Becker, but was not adopted), and though it’s a 600-cm2 size and 18x20 pattern like other Head mids, a different drill spacing scheme means that the Prestige mid grommets simply won’t fit.

Thanks alot for answer. I guess only option is to string it with teflon tubing then.
