    Hey guys,

    Last night, my racket was clashed. It was just a light scrap but a bit of the paint got chipped off. I know its probably no big deal but I want you guys' professional opinion. Can i still play safely with my racket? Would there be some slight internal damage in the frame that would deem the racket to be too unstable to play with? Maybe I should change the string to a lighter tension?

    I have attached some pictures of the racket. If you guys could comment that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    FRD

    This looks quite playable, in fact I believe there is a generous sweet spot that may enhance your game...just focus on good technique and that should solve all your problems....

    I have no idea what happen
    maybe somethings wrong with my computer?
    what I saw is an RSL X3, broken into three pieces at 1, 4 and 7 o'clock position
    it's bizarre

    i think it will play awesome. in fact, you have invented a new technology call triple kick point. manufacturers used to put a small kink on the top of the shaft to produce a single kick point. the issue with that is that of torsional instability.

    but now you have put the kick point in the frame itself, spreading out the kick point much wider and thus no more torsional instability.
