    Hey, i just bought a bravesword 8 about 2-3 months ago, and its restrung at 21-23, but while playing with it this week, i noticed a hairline crack! :crying: i play singles so i never clashed, but i do mishit on the frame occasionally. When i contacted the store i purchased it from the only solution was to send it back to victor. Is there anyway to fix it without sending it back, i'm worried that i wont get it back until april and even then i dont think they'll send me a new racket.:mad: What should i do?

    need pictures to help you out, but most likely if it's a hairline crack its pretty much done.

    Send it back, there is no way to fix it back to the original strength.

    are you sure it is a hairline crack and not a paint crack?

    i was just thinking would one be able to feel it when there is hairline cracks? Would that be clear signs of vibrations?

    At first i thought it was a paint chip, but i consulted some store owners and was told if i keep playing with it it'll crack. If i do send it in, how long would it take? and would they send me a new one? or just send it back..i'll try to post pictures as soon as possible.
