Had almost 2 years of good service with this beastly racket...unfortunately I had a clash with my partner during a match and I thought everything would be fine since this racket has gone through a lot. On the next point, I defended a smash and all I see is the shaft fly off from the handle
Those massive paint chips are probably from a bad batch IMO (or just bad mis-hiting LOL)
