    If there is a crack there is no point using that racket anymore. Just get a new one.

    Sad, but true! You can technically play with it until it caves in, but that won't take very long. If it were a stringer issue, maybe you can take it back and get it warrantied. If it was from a clash, that's pretty much the end of its life!

    If it is at 12 o'clock on the frame that would most likely be the stringers fault.

    its not at 12 but its prety close
    maybe at like 1ish
    but how can a prove its the stingers fault
    and i cant buy a new one , it would cause to much, and the store is in BC (and i dont live in bc)
    and just to slow the crak size down, i thought of puttin in some kind of glue?
    would that help to slow the process? (maybe like super glue? that stuff is hard)

    I play for about half a year at 23lbs with a crack in my main racket. It's exactly on top of the racket and one day it will break. But I restrung it several times now and it's staying the same. I believe it's maybe only a crack in the upper layer of the rackets frame.

    But in your case, when it's at 1oclock, i doubt it's the stringers fault, because I don't know any stringing machines that have supports at 1oclock.

    If it's from a defect, it will be under warrenty. However if it was due to user error or stringer, than no but that would be at the discretion of the maufacturer.

    Try to look for a Badminton racquet repairer. As long your racquet is a graphite, there is a chance repairing it. A friend of mine got his racquet repaired from totally broken to usable.

    cut the string and use super-glue. If the crack isn't that wide, it can still be saved.
    If you only play at 22~23lb, I don't thinkit's a big problem.

    From experience, don't use the super-glue at all... The racquet will break much faster.

    Just find a repairer via google. The repairer that I had found here is base in Adelaide.

    I hope you get the replacement racket. If you don't, my advice is just keep the racket for memory's sake. Don't use it and don't try to repair it. Just my two cents.
