    Default small crack in z slash

    Hello, I found a small crack like on the lower, right part on the frame of my z slash. I'm wondering if I use superglue, and then cover it up with some athletic tape if it will be fine

    If it's a really small crack and you keep the tension low, it will last a lot longer.

    Be very careful with the Z-slash, it's one of the most fragile racquets I know.

    Post a photo of the crack, it might help people to offer advice.

    Superglue won't do anything really. If you really wanted to put something on it, using epoxy resin would probably be best, but how much it would reinforce the area will depend how well it can be applied to the area.

    I have two z-slashes but I'm looking to get another one as I know sooner or later I will break one. I saw a brand new one break last week in a clash!

    You'll only know when people start breaking them. But I suspect it would be similar to the ZS.

    you can buy my cracked one

    although honestly I don't even use z slash anymore. Once I got the lethal 70 power, consistency, and accuracy all went way up
