    I recently got some Carbonex and a Ti-10 from some customers, and the grommets' condition is bad. I tried to replace them with generic grommets, but 2.1 grommets are too small and 2.6 ones are too big. Some holes took 2.6 ones, but feels pretty tight. I'm afraid it'll cause unnecessary force to the racket. :(

    Does anyone know the actual size of grommet for Carbonex/Ti-10? :confused:

    I found B2 (2.4mm) from http://www.alphatennis.com/Fittex.htm , but would like to see if anyone has experience on this and could give me some answer or advise.

    I went ahead and order a package of B2 from Alpha Sports.

    For some holes, I use 2.6mm generic grommets if I can push grommets in with my bare hands, and for those that I'm not comfortable to use 2.6mm grommets, I use the B2 grommets that I just received. It worked out OK though they're slightly loose, but not bad.
