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
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
