    Default Grommets

    Hi,

    Just wondering how important it is to replace the same grommets fitted onto the rackets as the originals? Anyone know where to get a nice set of various sized grommets in the UK?

    cheers!

    Maybe there's a minor difference, but I just go for the generic grommets from mybadmintonstore.com

    I agree. That's the way I do it.

    While we are at it which gromments are the right ones for most rackets? Diameter of 2.1mm, 2.6mm or 2.7mm?

    I agree. I used to stock HQ (believe same as mybadmintonstore) gromments size A and C, but A is hard to find now. I think J might be the closet one.

    Thought so. 2.1mm is for the non-shared holes and 2.7 for the shared ones?

    Does one also need both types of U-shaped grommets?

    Yes and yes. I believe HQ (and mybadmintonstore) have the U shaped ones, too.
