Fixing your broken racket
Just hope to share this good news with many here who feels are still soar over their lost!
Just got back from Beijing. Went to BBESHOP in Beijing, and they told me they could repair broken racket!!!! Music to my ears!
Cos I just lost my best pal , my MP 88!! (and it is no longer in production, and no where to be found)!
They shown me a sample of a fixed racket, bascially they seal it back.
They said it may not feel exactly the same as previously. ... but seriously rather than letting my beloved racket RIP OR $180 rest in my cupbroad, I think I would give it a try.
They would charge RMB50, and required abt 8-10days turnaround time.
BTW, anyone else tried fixing a racket?

I can tell you now, it won't perform the same as before.

well for a start, the balance of the racquet will be affected it will be very vulnerable as if you clash or smash to hard then it will break again it will not be the same racquet as it used to be so do not expect a miracle

most people will be understandbly skeptical. however, since it is only RMB50, worth a try. do let us know how it turn out.

It still feel good....but the racket just look like it been thru tough time and lots of Battles...As a strong warriors, these rackets still have life in EM....so don't waste a good racket by putting it away. Only people who sale rackets enjoy your broken ones, so you can buy a new one........I will squeeze every sweat from my broken rackets......good luck to all......Don't give up on your broken racket---It like given up on yourself due to injury......just keep your head up....

when my friend repairs broken rackets, he puts a "brace" on the broken spot. he first applies epoxy and then wraps it with an aluminum material. it molds perfectly and believe it or not, the tension tolerance can still be up to 28 lbs.

I've had an Arcsaber 7 fixed for £17, and restrung it at 25lbs. It works fine, as good as new
