    Default How to cover chip marks on racket?

    I just read a post of a member says to use nail polish to cover up the chip marks, does this work?

    What will you guys do?

    Best is auto paint, but that can be a bit expensive and harder to match colours.

    Nail polish is cheaper and easier.

    If it's a small chip, doesn't have to be exact match.

    You'd be surprised what colours you can find at the cosmetic counter. Anyways higher chance of orange colour there than at the auto supply store.

    Dollar Store. I just use my wife's stuff to paint over my TK8000.
    Get married or get a girlfriend so you don't have to spend money on nail polish!

    sir, getting married (which i found out the hard way) or getting a girlfriend is way more expensive than a few dollars for a bottle of nail polish

    So, the cheapest way to deal with paint chips is:

    - don't touch it up, and
    - don't get married

    ^ Better yet, don't play doubles... never heard of anyone clashing rackets in singles.

    Yeah no kidding. I'm normally very aware when playing doubles but others just aren't.

    i'm still trying to find a racket that plays like the nanoray800, but at around 70-80USD :P so if i clash and break a racket, it's not going to put a hole in my wallet to replace

    The XP70 if you pick a light and low to mid bp one (like 84g/290-295mm) feels very much like the NR800 that my friend had.
