    Default Types of Grommets

    Can someone look at this

    http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/shop...roducts_id=122

    and tell me what the difference between types A and D?

    I can see where you'd need different types like A and B or C, but D just seems to be a thinner version of A. I've probably been using the wrong type of grommet if it is.

    Also, can you not just cut the type C down to fit a type B size?

    Thanks for any advice

    According to the spec provided by Hi Qua, Type A and Type D are of same diameter but different length.

    A is the regular "single string" gromment, which usually to be found at the top of the head, or middle of the frame.

    D is the longer version, which only to be used around the T joint area, where the frame is usually thicker.

    If those gromments are really in bad shape, you can replace them with a regular gromment. The effect on the performance should be very minimal, while the impact on string life span is huge (no more cut string).

    Well, personally I only work with A and C. B is a shorter version of C, and you can cut C to make B, just make sure smooth the cutting edge. D is hardly to be needed. You can always find several useable ones from the old/broken rackets.
