    i'm not surprised, switching to plastic T joint. If i'm yonex, i would go with titanium alloy T joint, to distinguish my products as the tops.

    i don't think it's a crack of the frame, but more of the paint. after numerous clashes i have concluded that the frame is very sturdy. i have had one serious clash where my boss clashed with mine causing a crack in the shaft. this crack (which he denied) had paint chipped and when pressure is applied, the crack widens.

    1) It is a paint crack. It will play fine.
    2) Since it is SP, you are SoL because Yonex CAN hates SP coded racquets. Also, SP coded racquet has 3 month warranty only.
    3) The crack is due to use of harder and shinning paint.
    4) There will be more hairline paint crack comes up.
    5) If it is a CD or US coded, you can RMA it without any problem.

    My arc 7 has a bunch of cracks at the 7:00 position. They look a little like mud does when it dries, in big jagged circles ya know? My hunch is that the paint dried too quickly. Anyways, at first I was really annoyed, but It doesn't bother me too much now. It's been eclipsed by something else: last week I was playing with a noob and she clashed with my racket. She was using a steel 3 piece but I thought I got off scot-free a first...then I saw it near the T...a full 3 cm slash, 0.5 cm wide...jig-saw edges like someone had gone at it with a knife. WHY?!?! WHY ME?!?! WHAT DID I EVER DOOOO????!!! It's good to vent, but i'm still a little ticked as she was in my part of the court. The worst part? SHE DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE!!! If I clashed with someone and caused that kind of damage, I'd feel guilty for weeks! She didn't even blink! The pure NERVE of some people!!! Anyways...no chance of clashes being covered by warrany is there?

    That's why you choose your partner wisely to decrease the chance of clashes...

    @chowzer
    Yes, that proves my Arc10 is doing a lot of smashes!

    Yes, I believe I've learned my lesson. Still sucks though. We didn't even win the rally!
