    That strip are the grommets. So called tungsten infused, that's where they put the head mass, I suppose. Gonna be a pain to replace when worn out though.

    Oh i see it. It's like one of those weight strips but in this case, its the grommet. Smart. You're probably right, its gonna be hard to put in

    I almost get the feeling the new grommets are just a further cash cow scheme for Yonex. I hope they're cheap to replace.

    The grommets cost 525 yen which even though it is not expensive, is still an additional expense as I believe that stringer will not keep stock of it.

    So including VAT, postage etc, we're probably looking at around 5-6 extra for something that should cost pennies.

    Aw man, that grommet design is really disappointing. I thought they had designed something specifically to completely smooth out the head so that the strings 'disappear' into the frame.
