Knowing how fast racquets are discontinued nowadays, I had purchased replacement plastic grommets when I bought 2 matching racquets a year or so ago. Well I needed to restring last night and decided to replace them - they were especially worn out at the top of the hoop.... What a PITA! Whatever I tried I could NOT get more than a few grommets into the holes . My last brilliant idea leave them off but string through the grommet hole first and use the drop weight of the stringer to pull it in. This did not work. I ended up destroying the grommets and a set of brand new strings in the process. FWIW the racquet is a Head MG Extreme Pro and grommets seemed (at least to me) to be of very cheap construction. Made me wonder whether it is ever worth the effort. Does anyone bother to replace the grommets anymore and have any advice????
