View Full Version : Where to buy a new "bumper guard" for my racquet?

I have a Head Liquidmetal Radical racquet (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage.html?PCODE=LMRAD) and the bumper guard (the top part of the racquet) has worn down considerably. It's gotten so bad that I'm starting to wear down the racquet's frame and strings are breaking quicker. Does anyone know where to buy a new one, or if there's something better than tape to cover the area?

Or figure out what you are doing wrong in your strokes that you are scraping it so badly and correct it!

Nah. It's only happened on two of my racquets. I'm sure it's a combination of reaching for low balls, hiting it against the ground, and the guard not being all that great. I'd rather pay whatever it costs for a new guard instead of paying for a new racquet.

replace the racquet :confused: just go to wherever you get your strings done and ask for a replacement grommet (that is what it's called btw).

unless you've damaged the racquet frame since it's worn off it's not serious at all. My guy wouldn't charge me for it but you might get whacked 10 bucks or something

The guy who does my strings told me to order one online :lol:. Thanks for the help though, I'll probably just go back to the club and ask the other pros there.
