    Default Hairline crack?

    I was playing mix doubles today and i accidentally hit my partner's racket. Do you think the big chip on my racket has a small hairline crack?

    You can never be shure... Only thing you can be shure of is that is isn't totally cracked, and that it has a chip missing

    It is a paint chip. Most hairline cracks do not show paint being chipped, and often appears at the top, caused by stretching of the frame or load-spreaders when stringing.

    Yooo Man, you clash your racket almost everyday.
    It's a racket not a sword
    Just use it, you're not going to put it in the museum, are you?

    I had my at700 broken last time, the black one is like a fiber.
    on the at700 after the fiber you will find some kind like wood.

    But will the frame break by itself if you see that black stuff?

    I've got a bigger chip than that on my Mp40 ( I can see more of that black stuff) , but I've still been able to use it for the past half a year with it without any problems at all. or maybe it's just because it's a jp..

    It will probably hold up unless you hit the same spot some more, nothing to worry about unless a crack goes all around the frame where it is damaged.
