    Default How did this crack happen?

    Hi all,
    I have a crack in my AT-700 =(. I strung my racket at around 27 lbs, and had a few mishits with it, but no clashes. A few days ago, I notice that there's a HUGE crack at 12 'o clock. Was this crack caused by my stringing? If so, how can I fix my stringing to prevent it? Thanks, all!Name:  005.jpg

    how old is your racket?

    27lbs is not exceptionally high, but repeated stringing at this tension might weaken the frame after a while.

    The racket's about a year old
    I'm still new to stringing, so I'm wondering if it might be my stringing technique.

    I think it's a pro's pro machine (don't know the exact model); drop weight machine with 6 supports and fixed clamps

    I think your top (12 o'clock) support need to add-on the "load spreader". To prevent the crack.
