Racket - Beginning cracks?
Last game of the night, a week ago, my partner and I both went for it, technically she should have it, but I went for it as well (Stupid me). We were both going for the clear, and our rackets collided. Tiny chip on the top of my racket, and what looks to be 2 indents in the racket. Should I be worried?
I played a week later, (yesterday), and the power seems to have been cut off dramatically. But improved control, so I'm not sure if it's just me having the sore arm, or if the racket might be broken...
No pics, as I don't have a camera in Hong Kong.. shocker >.>

I can not see how a cracked racket improve your control, so I think it's mostly mental. If you are really worried, bring it to a reputable stringer, s/he usually should be able to tell after inspection.

Only on rare occasions I have felt that a racket with a visible crack has been as playable as a unbroken one. (sometimes I have retired rackets broken tath I could not even spot the crack in the paint :-) .. but you can feel that it is broken (los of repulsion, power, and loss of "boom" ..)
I have seen many use cracked racket, and when tried their racket I have been puzzled why they play on with it.. Why used a cracked AT700 for example if even an unbroken low end racket would play better?!?!

Yeah, it seems fine, I hope.
