    Default racket repair in UK

    Needed advises for racket repair in UK please? My beloved ti10 has a crack on the inside frame at the 2 o’clock position, have it re-stringed to 19 lbs-ish and the frame is holding up (touch wood) but it’s almost unplayable. Could like to get it repaired/strengthened for a reasonable cost.

    Many thanks in advance

    my proshop sends it off somewhere. It takes a while, and costs £30-35 with restringing. Do you have any pro shop near by? some do it from online as well, but not sure about restringing

    Just as a note, the graphite will never be as strong on the repaired area as all they do is heat up the area and add a bit more carbon fiber to "weld" it together. Since most cracks occur through a grommet hole that makes it even more fragile. Personally, I think you're better off investing the cost to repair on a new racket.
