    I think it's cracked, not 100% sure though, it's bent when string's still on it, back to the original shape when string's removed. You judge. Make me an offer. Code as shown. Estimated shipping to US mainland 20 dollars, international maybe more.

    Smashed it on the head of my dear 60ish yr old partner, he didn't even rub his head after it happened, yet my dear at900p is not so fortunate...

    I think my favorite part is, "It's cracked, I think!" Son, that thing is destroyed! That's a little more than a crack! Hahahahaha!

    Kid, I have the racket in my hand, I was there when it happened, I said broken/cracked, I "think" I'm entitled to a little opinion of mine, don't you think? :)

    Glad I made your day anyway :)
    (My goodness, where are serious buyers for broken rackets? this is the wrong place to post it?!)

    The racket frame is gone...basically can't be re-strung, if the frame can be welded plus some cosmetic job, it might serve as an display item.

    From the photo, it seems that crack happens at 2 o'clock position, be extra careful with the frame because any pressure/tension might cause the opposite position to snap as well....

    it is total lost. cant use it anymore. unless some one add stainless steel strap to that damaged area and also the other side to counter balance.
    4U and it is At900, hard to survive a clash.

    Thanks drifit&ERTHK for the info/comment. Guess manufacture warranty doesn't mean much for this kind of damage. Anyone who can fix broken/cracked rackets even just back to 80% of original condition would surely make a fortune. Dink said he would use such service for his 20 some broken rackets if it even existed.

    Dude, are you serious!? Look at that thing! That's THRASHED! It's not an opinion! If I break an egg, it's not my "opinion" that the egg is broken, it's freaking broken! That's a fact! It's not up for debate! And that racket IS broke! Sorry man! That's a bummer! But I just can't imagine anyone in their right mind buying such a racket.

    HaHa, sorry I missed your opinion/response until now. Calm down, kid. I know the outer part is shattered as shown. Yet when it happened, with 26 pound tension string still attached, it's just slightly bent. So it's possible to be either broken or cracked, hence broken/cracked. I think it's cracked though if I have to guess. I wouldn't try to yank the frame to be sure either way just to prove a point. Don't be so worked up jumping up and down. :)

    And I agree, tho this SuperBird may not be in the "right" mind, he's probably has a good reason.

    overcomer, there's always noise in any forum. Get used to it. :)

    Looking at the damage, I'm just wondering what's your partner's head made of, he maybe went straight to the restroom to cry w/o you knowing it :rolleyes:

    I know, Dink said the same thing.

    If he did, he really went an extra mile just to assure me he's ok. HaHa, he's very kind.

    the thread is closed for the chance of me selling it here not looking promising.
