    Do you have a link for the AC416L-1? Have you ordered that yet from shuttlehouse? Do you have a link for it?

    Aside from the fear of the string eating into the frame of the racket.I am curious to know what other capabilities of the grommets will add.Kindly shed some light.

    How much do they roughly cost?

    That seems pricey with shipping included. For me, it will be lower.

    The AC416-L3 (which is designed to fit the currently still in production AT500 and AT700) should fit into the older Yonex racquets since they all including the AT500 and AT700 use the same "old" grommet system which have the same grommet hole size. If you haven't noticed the main difference amongst the three models are the grommet hole sizes which the pack is supposed to fit in.

    The grommets will however not fit onto a MP100 properly as the parts where the plastic is supposed to protect on the MP100 are grooved and not flat like the other old racquets.

    For MP100,i tried the 6 grommets for AT700 n it fits really well.For 30MS,i can't try it for u since i dont have this racket.Ti10 2nd gen,last time i tried,didnt work out.But with patience,i think it'll work out..since last time i measure with the old 700,it's the same space difference between grommets.I'll let u know once i tried ti10 2nd gen and ti-SP.While for ti10 1st gen,i'm not sure it's necessary or not,since i havent heard of that problems to be appeared on it.

    Anyone who has these already installed, do you think these make a difference in performance?
