    I'm looking for a place to get these recessed grommets used in the Babolat X-Feel range of rackets you can see in the picture.

    All i found out is that they are supposed to be made from PEBAX, but that doesn't really help. I also contacted Babolat for this, but I never received a response.

    Can anyone help me out? As I live in Germany, I'd prefer a place in Germany, but any hint will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Nope. Sorry. Never heard anything. The obvious workaround would be to just use normal grommets. It will destroy the clean look and I think the quality of those grommets is pretty good.

    It was just a test racket and I finally bought the Babolat Satelite Blast, so I stopped looking. But since I'm not the only one interested, I'll try again.

    If you find out anything, please let me know. ;)

    I talked to a Babolat sponsored player (who plays a X-Feel) last week and he didn't know but he'll try to find out.
