Take extra care when stringing a new tennis frame

I was reminded today while stringing a new Wilson Blx lite tennis racket to always keep a close eye on the grommets as the seed.  Secure the grommets and gently press them in as you tension the outer mains, this is the area that the sharpest angles occur and could pottentially cut into the frame.  Once the string cuts the frame, you have caused damaged and its hard to do anything about.  I have seen this error many times and it basically is a mistake that can cost you a new racket!  Be careful when stringing a new frame and watch the grommets as you pull the tension.
