    Default arcsaber z slash, crack or paint chip

    I'm am so scared right now. I found a chip on my 3 week old racket. Can u help identify if it is a crack or just paint chip. And the string came loose, as you see the black thing is kind of broken, will I be able to re string it? Please help!

    Looks like paint chip to me.
    As for the grommet, it's just one so ask your stringer to give you a replacement.
    Actually, could you please take a few more pictures from different angles. There seems to be a line below the chip. Cut the string now if you haven't done so.

    hmm three weeks old and it already like that? how many times do you play in a week? nyway it looks like a paint chip. Mine has a similar chip like that with a hair white mark when I look very close to it. I do not think it's a crack and has re-strung it twice since I notice it.

    You have nothing to lose IMO; you cannot play with it if you don't re-string it..If you restring it chances are, it breaks eventually came down to same conclusion..just take the chance!

    Is this a paint crack, or hair line crack. Because I do use my racket to pick up birdies time to time.

    'looks' good...run your fingers through the grommets if you think they need replacing (sharp)
