    Unhappy MP77 Frame Cracked

    I have a MP77 that's got a crack at the top of the frame. Looking at the Yonex site, the frame is H.M Graphite. The crack is quite serious that it's gone 1/3 of the way thru the frame (almost reaching the grommet). Is there a way to stop the crack continuing? Or does anyone know of a way fixing the crack??

    Many thanks.

    Some stores offer the repair services to the racket frame, and you might want to give it a try at local stores.

    Cut the string. Store safely your racquet in a good temperature place and do what bleujeff told you^^

    Hey Iceger,

    You could try to have it fixed. But if you routinely string your racquets at tension higher than 20lbs, I suggest you toss the doomed racquet in the garbage can. After a crack developed, it's not going to have the original integrity and material strength. No matter how smaller it is, a crack will just keep growing due to tensile pressure from the strings and shuttle impacts.
