    Default Grommets for CARBONEX ?

    I am planning to purchase some new grommets (most likely from MBS) for my Carbonex 20sp, 8000Ti ... since this is a NEW AREA for me ... any idea what sizes I should buy for Cabs ?

    Most of the stringers that I know do not do complete set of grommet change, so I may have to do so myself and then let them string.

    Furthermore, what tools do I need apart from a pair of pliers and a sharp blade ?

    Any advice and recommendations are most appreciated - TQ in advance

    I tried looking for specific Yonex grommets for CABS but to no avail, I guess I have to end up using the generic types but what type/size ?

    What I've bought (from researching this forum) was:

    MBS Generic grommets type C (shared grommets) & I (single grommets). They're both the "long" version & some people recommend to trim them with a razor to size (longer grommet can be cut, short cannot be extended ). According to my research, this fits 99% of racquets out there (the other 1% is U-shaped grommets found in newer racquets).

    Note that I haven't received the above items (they're still in transit) so it's only info that I found from digging around in this forum.

    Another idea is to salvage grommets from old/ broken racquets & put them into the Cab

    I used to use HQ type A (single) and C (double / shared) gromments, and with trimming, they will fit for most of the rackets. I believe type I is a legit choice, if you do not have A.
