Injured racquet :/
 
Hey!
I gotta question for you.
Last saturday i played tennis with a friend of mine and in the first set his string said goodbye ;)
so i let him play with my 2nd racquet (both babolat pure drive).

As he was already in a destructive mood^^ after a while he noticed some strange sound with my racquet. At first i thought it was even worse (it really sounded baaad), but then we noticed, that the little black plastic "rings" where every string from the racquet goes into the raquet (which are inside all over the frame, no idea how to call them) was loose and a little broken. I'm able to push it back in, however after a couple of strokes it almost always pops out again.

Anybody of you, had this problem, already? Can this be fixed, or do i have a serious problem? Well i just could destroy the little plastic thing and take it away, however if there's no possible replacement for it, i still would not like it. (the raquets are only a couple of weeks old, dammmn^^)

Hope somebody can help me (:

Those are your grommets :D call the tennis warehouse Europe phone number and they should be able to ship them to you. I believe they cost around 10-15$ in the U.S. so it shouldn't be that expensive for you to replace. Just cut out the string, pull out the old head guard and replace and restring. It'll be good as new :D

Thanks soooo much ;)
I've fixed it so far with some sticky tape and it works.
however this is great news and i'll order it.

I'll just hope that they can replace it for me when i will get new strings (:

Edit: Indeed only cost me 5€ ~~ 7-8$.

Similar was the case with mine quite some time earlier then it cost me just $6.
