    it is just part of the injection mold. no engraving involved. it is a nice touch regardless. more classy looking.

    And they're really really solid grommets to boot too.

    If only they could be purchased on the open market, along with the square ones.

    If the pictures from Taobao are correct, the part number of the square-head set is AXJK006-2 so chances are that the set will soon be available throught regular Li-Ning distributors.
    What racket is that? Those grommets do look really nice and classy, hands down.

    Ah that's interesting, thanks. The new square ones will hopefully be available worldwide.
    I have the black ones for sale, they are not the same as the grommets in the new renamed series of rackets. As in the picture above, the new grommets have the li-ning logo and have a thicker/deeper head.

    That's the number of the regular round-headed grommet set that is already widely available. AXJK006-2 is the one for the square-headed set.

    Nice touches like this shows they really are trying to go premium on every detail.

    I also notice the double grommets have the logo and brand name, the singles have just the logo twice :cool:
