    My friend's fake racket also met this situation. This is mainly because of the poor graphite used to make the frame of the racket. My friend strung his racket @ 24lbs and his racket ended up like this. It will just break some day later.

    Played 4 hours with it today. Did a dozen of my best bang and still holding and performing great. I have 3 of these. This is with the lowest tension string on it. 27lbs. I did a few searches, and saw quite a few with cracks like these. The problem is the gromets will expose string to frame, causing them to snap.

    This is not fake but fleets version of zforce. But totally different specs.

    Latest Update. RIPieces.

    The racket did not break when i did a few of my hardest bang. It snapped when i was doing a lob to the base. TSIP! high pitch. and its gone.

    So for those that see similar cracks, its going to go soon. Bring it for warranty claim and don't use it anymore.
