    I recently got this aerotus 100, beautiful racket! I did some grommet inspection especially the 12oclock position.

    I found that there is a bit of sink in, very very minor.

    But this being an aerotus 100, I'm very paranoid about stringing it and damaging the frame...

    Need some help/judgement from people here whether if it's still safe to string

    Thanks! IMG_20210717_021437.jpg IMG_20210717_021354.jpg IMG_20210717_021422.jpg

    Yes. that's fine. that's a mold line and a marker for the 12 oclock position and not a crack. If you are really concerned about the sink in, get a T/L shaped grommet, or even better a U-grommet but the sizing will be a problem.

    The Aerotus series is not very strong. I won't recommend anything higher than 25lbs.

    Now I play 20lbs only, mainly to protect my rackets

    I got a U Grommet which was mean for grommet 5 and 6 on the AT700. It is slightly big but I guess that may work...

    make sure it is a good fit. a poorly fitting grommet might create more stress.
