Any suggestions as to where I can find tubing for grommets?  I had some black at one time, but the source doesn’t carry it anymore, as well as basic.  Thanks, Bill

I went to a local surplus store and bought more than I’ll ever need. They had the proper diameters in white Teflon and nylon, although I didn’t find black.

Fromuth Tennis and Alpha Sports/New Tech Tennis have clear/white plastic tubing.   Other… it’s not always as neat but can work well.  I will keep used narrow/thin grommets (black) from rackets that I have replaced grommets with new ones.  Then I will use these old grommets to create one or two hole plug-in grommets instead of tubing.   So, one would remove the damage grommet(s) and then find an appropriate used grommet to plug in in its place.  Tends to work well for the first longer outer main string grommets near the throat that have split allowing the string to pull up against the frame.
