    Hi all,
    I have a crack in my AT-700 =(. I strung my racket at around 27 lbs, and had a few mishits with it, but no clashes. A few days ago, I notice that there's a HUGE crack at 12 'o clock. Was this crack caused by my stringing? If so, how can I fix my stringing to prevent it? Thanks, all! 005.jpg 014.jpg

    how old is your racket?

    27lbs is not exceptionally high, but repeated stringing at this tension might weaken the frame after a while.

    The racket's about a year old
    I'm still new to stringing, so I'm wondering if it might be my stringing technique.

    I think it's a pro's pro machine (don't know the exact model); drop weight machine with 6 supports and fixed clamps
