    Default Repair broken racquet frame

    Has anyone tried repairing a broken frame, maybe with glue?
    I have an ISO 500 with a long diagonal break on the upper side of the frame (about 2:00 o'clock). I'd like to glue this back together and cover the entire frame with masking tape to make a racquet I can practice shadow drills with. I'm choosing masking tape instead of just using a racquet cover because the racquet cover will change the balance too much.

    So, does anyone have a suggestion for what type of glue to use? I'm thinking of epoxy, but don't know what type would be best.

    Thanks,
    marshall

    Hey Marshall i figured if its a diagonal break a piece of metal inserted inside the frame glued with epoxy works the best my old isometric was outstanding bg 70 pro 25lbs strung hope that helped
