    When playing a fast sport such as badminton, there are bound to be things that damage the racket. I own a MP-77 and the paint around the head has many chips. However, there is one particular chip (at least I think it's a chip) that's really bothering me. (sorry I don't have pic) It is located at the top of the head and it looks pretty deep. Should I worry about this? Is there anyway to fix this? And is there a way to prevent this in the future?

    no. worrying about a paint chip is like worrying that you will wear out the sole of your shoes. it is just a part of life.

    no. there are ppl who says they can fix racket, but the racket will never be the same again. best is to use the rest of your racket's life to the maximum. (ie. just play with it)

    either be extra careful or put it in the closet and not use it.

    again. racket clash is a way of life. if you don't like clashes and chips, play singles... ;)

    Thanks Kwun!

    Sorry but I have one more question. Is the inside of the racket hollow?

    Doh!... they ARE hollow. That means with every paint chip, I'm one step closer of needing a new racket!

    Thanx 604 Badder
