    Default Arc 10 PG - Hairline or Paint chip? Help please =[

    Hi guys,

    I got this arc 10 PG around 1-2 yrs ago. It is barely used, as I did not like how the racquet felt. There have been ZERO clashes, and there are no paint chips at all on the head of the racquet. Although funny enough there is a small chip on the shaft - which i have no idea how it got there.

    Anyways, i found this crack/ chip right on the T-Joint, which is odd. A bit worried that its a crack.
    I've (hopefully) attached some pics - the line is not deep at all.

    Input is appreciated =)

    It might be a crack from my view, but like you side the crack line isn't deep, I'm not too sure... Sorry

    How did you store this racket?
    A detail explanation would be really helpful to determine its exact cause (s) ?

    Racquet was stored in a soft case inside my normal badminton bag. Usually have around 5 racquets in there....although i don't think that this is due to storing it improperly.

    I should add that when I initially bend the racquet (after not touching it for a while) it will make a cracking sound (not sure if its from that spot / if its paint / if its actual structural). But itll only do that when i first bend it, subsequent bending doesn't result in any sound.
    Not sure if that's helpful or not*

    what happens when you try to stress (ie. bend the racket) across that line?
    does that increase the gap?
