    Exclamation Debris graphite/carbon inside the handle. Bravesword LYD

    Hi guys,

    i bought a new bravesword LYD from one of the main distributor.. After one or two strokes.. There was a rattling sound inside the handle. The next day I went to the shop for repair. He open the butt cap and a graphite/carbon almost half the size of a coin came out.

    i owned two LYD(same grip, same string ,different tension). I checked the BP of both racket, they are same.. I was wondering is it me or can the debris affect the weight and balance of the racket.

    thanks in advance and sorry for broken English .

    I don't think half a coin size will matter in terms of bp/weight. What's more of a concern is where it came from which might affect the structural strength of the racket.

    I would consider getting a new one or returning it to manufacturer for the defect. It could also just be a loose piece. Were the edges on it clean cut or were they jagged? If it's jagged, it's more likely to have broken off.

    sure it wasn't dried epoxy (glue)?

    No, the edges on it were clean cut, no sign of broken or damaged
