Thread: broken grommet

Yeah well I just restrung my racket some weeks ago and now theres a broken grommet on the bottom. Do you guys think this will affect my technique or my game? Because I played very bad today(racket didnt make a POW sound when i hit like normally)... with the sound of the broken grommet, its becoming annoying and im not sure if the racket has a problem or is it just the grommet.

hmm if theres a broken rubber thing on the bottom of you racquet frame i would say it maybe would slightly affect your gameplay like an increase in vibration and might lower your frame durability.
im don't know if there are replacements for them but if its affecting your gameplay and endangers your racquet investment i suggest you replace it

cut your strings and replace the grommets, they'l snap soon either way once the string reaches the racquet frame. then restring and everything will be fine

Can you take a picture of what it looks like? Normally I don't think it should affect your gameplay that much, because my racket had some damaged grommets as well. Maybe it's just the string or something...

It won't affect your play.
The strings might break earlier than normal, and you should probably replace the grommet next time you restring; but there's no need to cut the strings now.

The broken gromment should have very min. effect on the playability of the racket. However, depend on the location / string type and tension, it will effect the string durability in a certain degree.

you'll probably hear different from usual noise when you hit the shuttle if a grommet is broken (unless that you are trying out a different string). Yes, my string broke just after a few hits from stringjob because the grommets are worn out

If your stringer do some good job he have to change the broken grommet,not for free ,a part of the job!
sometime when the grommet are too badly broken the string can cut the frame,I saw it several time!
if it is not too brokened you can wait the next time!

However; if the grommet cracked during a game, you don't have to worry unless you use high tension (24 or above). You can wait the string to break. and then replace it.
